Peter, nice arrangement. Also enjoyed the video (PeterCam?) I assume you programmed the mix and drum sequence, etc. What DAW did you end up using? (I saw you asked about a multi-track DAW elsewhere)


Kawai MP11 : JBL LSR305 : Focusrite 2i4 : Pianoteq Standard

Hello Scorpio. I just used the piano`s onboard facilities, but the drums had to go onto the computer as a separate channel, played on the hoof as it were since they`re not recordable like the other tracks. I could then edit them somewhat on Audacity. Looking at software sequencers is doing my head in . . could be several stages too far for me!

really enjoyed your piece peterws, very professional sounding. Loved the video of what I assume in your northern home town. Made me a little home sick.

Augustina - Winter Solstice in Lapland? Those reindeers`ll well kn*ckered by now . . . . give `em some straw and have a stiff drink yourself `cos it`s cold outside! I like winter, and enjoyed this canter through the frozen wastes.

That was great, Peter! Now I imagine you are already working on this: Learning to pedal to the beat of your metronome. That will really give you a tight sync between the audio and video. I can't wait for the next one!

Here's a piece I've started to create. Haven't decided on rather it's finished or if I want to do some more stuff to it smile Btw, I've moved to a new house and it just has a fantastic view of the mountains. I made sure to save a spot right in front of the window for my piano. It's so refreshing to play my piano and stare at this beautiful view while doing it. I could do it all day.

Peter, great arrangement, and playing. Cool video, too, it kept me shifting around in my chair the whole time, trying to keep my balance.

Augustina, .quite a long piece to play at that tempo without error, well done. I always wanted to work someplace where I could take a piano break now and then!

Ladypayne, nicely done, it really does get me to thinking of the mountains of Alaska. Nice melodies, interesting contrast between the sections.

Brent, I can't play and sing at the same time either. (Or, to be more precise, I can't sing and X at the same time, where X = do anything or nothing at all). But it seems that your method worked well, everything is in sync. Intriguing ending!

My piece this month is As Time Goes By, written by Herman Hupfeld.

This is the song from Casablanca, which is the favorite movie of us old geezers, and maybe it stirs up some feelings just because we associate it with the movie. However, it was not written for the movie, and during the planning and production of the movie it was not thought to be essential to it, and was deleted and put back in a few times. The typical person thinks of it as a jazz song, but jazz players don't actually play it very often.

I am playing from a lead sheet.

Ladypayne, your piano has a lovely relaxed feel to it, and a nice echo . . . .that is a good view. Especially when it snows!

NOTE: AFTER POSTING LAST NIGHT I RE-RECORDED THE VOCALS THIS MORNING

Here's my rendition of "When I Fall In Love". It's a little faster tempo than most versions and I do it in the key of F rather than the usual Eb.

http://snd.sc/1hn6zCz

Piano part recorded first and played back in my headphones while recording the singing.

P.S. One minor mistake in the lyrics but let's just chalk it up to poetic license or interpretation on my part!

peterws,

Very cool. I particularly liked how you kept playing without missing a beat after the wipeout on the cobblestones at 2:18 ;-)

Perfect little video/music interlude to get my morning started.

augustina,

I'm also intrigued by you recording this "at work". If my coworkers heard something like that coming from my office (not that I could actually play that piece, great playing!) I'd probably not get any work done the rest of the day. I'd be surprised if you're not besieged by requests from your office-mates for their favorite piano tunes.

ladypayne,

I don't have such a view from my window. But I just returned from vacation and your tune reminded me of watching lovely scenery pass by the window of the train as I was traveling in England.

I'm actually doing the separate-tracks thing mostly as a practice technique. The whole idea is to be able to practice the accompaniment while listening to the vocal track and vice versa so I eventually put them together.

And on this song it worked! I can now do a pretty credible job of singing+playing together. Still sounds better doing them separately as I can really concentrate but in the end doing it together "live" is the goal.

I love it. Great treatment. I'm in a slightly too early stage of geezer-hood to have come to the song from the movie. I've just always thought it was a great, great tune. Well done.

David,

Is it just my computer or is the sound turned off on both your YouTube clips?

I see a little speaker-with-and-X icon and I don't hear any sound.

I guess it must have been temporary youtube glitch or, if you still don't hear anything, there's some problem on your side. I hear sound in both videos.

Peter - Good work. Did you crash at the end?
Augustina- I liked that. Who wrote it?
Lady Payne - short and sweet. A pretty tune. Who wrote it? (Who wrote what is an obsession of mine)
Riddler – Wow. Excellent.
Brent – One of my favourite old songs. Reminds me of when I was very young, listening to the BBC on a Sunday while my Mum’s roast was in the oven
David - very accomplished

The bar is already very lively, and only a few days of October behind us.

Peterws – Nice playing and the video is entertaining. I thought of getting the DGX-630 at some point in time, but then I had the P85 which has the same action and I wanted to get a different action. Ended with up Casio PX-5S which I love, but you can do so much with the Yamaha DGX-6x0 line.
Augustina – well done
ladypayne – a nice soothing song, wish I could create something like this. If it’s not clear by now, well played!
Brent H – your When I Fall In Love is very good. Such a standard song to play on the piano.
Riddler – I enjoyed As Time Goes By, your postings are always good. I’d prefer to play it slower and maybe fewer notes in the bass (if I could play it at all, any version) to capture the melancholics of the song, but that has more to do with the arrangement than your playing.
David Ruzicka – your short pieces were very nice and you´re good at the piano.

`Tis hard singing and playing. I had to do it in church years ago now. I got through the first 2 or 3 bars, then laid off when the congregation kicked in . . . .I think they sung just to drown me out!

It was the camera phone that departed my handlebars! Still works and is the basis for any videos here.

Great to hear everyone again!
peterws~ that was quite a journey and everything was in good sync - fun to watch. The ending is curious - did anything break?

augustina~ as always, you bring new music. Very nicely played.

ladypayne~ beautiful image at sunset and your composition is equally beautiful.

Ed~ Love those full, rich chords and steady swing. This is fantastic!

BrentH~ great work on "When I Fall in Love". Nice arrangement you created and your delivery is great for the lyrics. Great to hear you!

David~ very relaxed hands you have and you deliver the music with a great touch. I very much enjoyed your YouTube channel, too.

David, as usual, I am quite impressed by your perfect control of each note, and the musicality of your playing. These pieces were wonderful to listen to.

Peter, here is a link to a lead sheet. It is not identical to the one I used, but then again, I reharmonized in several places, and added my own intro and ending.
