Yah, I know >.< Epic fail, I guess. I was listening to heavy metal whilst typing this. It's actually 'piano piece'. I've heard heavy metal makes you crazy smile


Liszt is my favourite composer :P

I think it's a cool funny creation from Hamelin laugh
and it may be better not to play with a piano sound indeed
actually it barely matters what sound is used, it's all crazy

I know this thread is old, but "Circus Galop" never gets old... right? smile

Anyhoo... I recently did a Pianomation installation on a Steinway S and we made a video of playback from a few different angles and thought I'd share.

And here's another page that hosts the MIDI file, just in case anyone else wants to have a bit of fun with it: http://www.vgmusic.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=16&t=14127

Enjoy!

I'm a big fan of heavy metal, but over-exposure can make you a little crazy. I've been listening to a lot of Deathspell Omega for an essay I'm working on and I'm having some very weird dreams atm lol

Can't resist taking a dip.

All this tripe about youngsters (fresh to the business)
calling a piece of music a “song” ... we know what they mean.

and the thal chappie from Bonnie England has the gall to advocate
“After they have been lined up against a wall and machine gunned.”

What a twit!

What about Mendelssohn's Songs without words ? They don't use singing or vocals, but they are still called songs.

And there are musical pieces titled "Poem" that aren't poems.

And they are always referred to as Songs Without Words, so as not to confuse them with his actual songs, of which he wrote many. smile

OK, Nobody's brought up what I think is a salient point, so I'll dive in:

"Do you think anyone's able to play the 'Circus Galop' by Hamelin?"

Would anybody want to? It's not really very good as a piece. I don't think it would be worth the trouble.

And Islamey is still harder.

The anti-song pendants are so anal-retentive that they one-point compactify Euclidian space every time they sit down.

Don't let them discourage you; I promise, the forums are welcoming enough!


Beethoven - Op.49 No.1 (sonata 19)
Czerny - Op.299 Nos. 5,7 (School of Velocity)
Liszt - S.172 No.2 (Consolation No.2)

Rachmaninoff - Sonata 2, movement 2 in E minor

If you're specifically addressing the OP, bear in mind this is an Old Thread, and Veganpilot hasn't posted in over a year.

I read you need 5 hands to play some of the chords. So the answer is no (unless you cheat wink )
