Pianoloverus,
I think I mentioned in an earlier post that it is the speed with which you can evaluate an actions performance and the balance of tone that piano playing technique confers. The same thing as Mark Purney just said.

By the way Mr. Purney is a very skilled pianist. He can produce a wonderful tone and has a fluidic, virtuosic technique.

fluidic? My OED sent me in an obscure direction.

Marty,
Given your off the wall reactions to some of my posts, maybe you often go in the wrong direction. Fluidic is a proper conjugate of the word fluid. It is an appropriate description of facile and dynamically controlled piano technique.

Nope - A pianist has a fluid technique, not a fluidic technique.

Sorry, you're wrong. One does not conjugate an adjective.

Minnesota Marty,
Fluidic works, you know what I meant and it is a word conjugate that fits the circumstances. There is no legal language authority in the English speaking world. All english writer/speakers are free to coin word forms and even grammatical variants. The final judge is-does it communicate accurately and effectively. We are no longer in school here. I make no pretense of being a highly skilled writer but sometimes I can turn a phrase or two. English dictionaries are always behind the times regarding language use.

It just goes to show that one can fluidically step in it at will!

You needn't be so pedantical. One who speaks so eruditiously hasn't any need to excel in pontificatiousness.

Have a great thursday!

KurtZ,
Such a temporally brilliant pun! You must have just been elected some sort of Pope!
Now if Marty can just stow his mistrust. Maybe you can absolve him of his past sins and he will sin no more.
