Until recently, I hated playing "electric keyboards" and wasn't a great fan of digital music. But it's been a strange year. Lacking opportunities to play on the real thing in a concert hall, I've been a lot more motivated to see if I can make music using Pianoteq.

Over the last year, I've "performed" five pieces in different styles, from Haydn through to a new work composed last year. I'm really interested to hear what other people think of this.

Now I'm familiar with the Guy Bacos affair. I don't want to kick off another 300+ posts about "is it real?" and "did someone cheat here?"

For me, I want to know: does it sound good, for your definition of "good"? Are you able to listen and find meaning in it? I don't want my audience to dwell on how it's created at the same time they're listening, any more than I want live concert audiences to be thinking "how does he remember all those notes?" or "was this bit more difficult to play than that bit?" I'm doing this because I think a bunch of composers have created something incredible, and I want to share (my interpretation of) their work.

For now I'll just say that the technology (virtual pianos, MIDI editing software, etc) has improved beyond all recognition in the 20+ years since I first looked in this direction. And I'm happy to answer questions about the tech, and about why I've done it this way, once people have had a listen. But I'm really more interested in the music itself.

Thanks for any comments, suggestions or interesting questions you can offer!
