Someone told me that the following piece sounds like it's played by a computer:

All of the sheetmusic2print.com demos sound very mechanical. I don't know if it's computer-generated because there are little details like accents and rubato that would be hard to do with software.

If it is, I think it can be a good thing, because then you can hear exactly what the notes say, which is a good place to start. smile


Playing the piano is learning to create, playfully and deeply seriously, our own music in the world.

Whatever is the case, its a good example of how it should not be played.

It's awfully slow! If it really is played by a computer, why isn't it allegro?

I'm nearly 100% sure it's played by a computer. And if it isn't, the person playing it is one!

There is some slight dynamic variation, but it is done pretty much exactly the same way every time. Phrases are extremely predictable, increasing by the same volume each time they go up and down. The slight slowing down and decrescendo at the end also sounds really scripted. The key attack and consistency sounds unnatural.

Agree that it sound like its played by a computer.
About following. No I dont enjoy computer generated played pieces... yet
The attackrate is almost allways unsettling - and totalty lack of good nuances.
However when learning a piece of music and unsure on what the relation between the notes are it does not have to sound pretty.
Take it slow. Slow as it almost sounds silly. In that way the video link you posted could serve a åurpose - steps on the way learning the piece.
