Thanks smile

Ok, so I have bought some of those "Great Courses" DVD sets and have been attempting to learn stuff.

Today, I was watching a lecture on meter, and I became fascinated with the Dave Brubeck Quartets's meter changes as a result of the lecture. So now I'm hearing stuff differently. I've always liked their stuff, but now I appreciate it a bit more.

Thanks, Wayne.

Good luck in your new venture, Aimee.

When I was writing songs back in the day I'd record my voice with a twelve string guitar and a timing pulse only from a Roland TR-707 drum machine. It avoided the mechanical effect of a click-track (helped some songs, ruined others smile ) and I'd program the drums in from the keyboard later.

I used this piece as a case study for recording and one of the things I got from it was the amount of creativity in Ringo's drumming fills and how he supported the song structure with his main grooves. I learnt a load from this one piece.

Richard - Lately I'm realizing exactly how little I've appreciated the drummers. It's shameful. Not to mention how exhausting it must be.

timmyab - ha! Those days are gone! They were pretty short lived, actually.. I realized I liked off-the-beaten-path bars much better grin

Recaredo, I hope I have time to watch that soon!

Speaking of documentaries..
The JD Salinger documentary is out on Netflix, and I have mixed emotions about watching it. I'm reading the book that goes along with it and am finding the biographers rather opinionated.. Anyone seen it yet?

A Salinger inspired song today.

Isn't it great how a song with a super beat is built around 4 diatonic chords in B?

(G#m E B F#) and repeat 100 times!

Loved it....

I guess I'll through in my two cents! A modern 50's doo wop style to one of Miley Cyrus's latest. This version gives it a far better quality.

What did you see? I've only read the short story..

The biography is making me see his stories in a different light, which is precisely why Salinger didn't want anyone to know about him. Which leads me down another path.

I've looked for the composer and his life in some of the pieces, and am wondering if this is such a good idea. Now I wonder - should a piece just be a piece, like a story can be just a story? How much of the composer's life should one interject into a piece? I'm not so sure anymore.


Anyway, on to something light.

So, I was just looking around on ArtofCounterpoint's YouTube page.. haven't visited in a while.

Found a gorgeous 50 Cent Pimp remix for 4 guitars. It's awesome how he takes these contemporary songs and throws them back 300+ years




For giggles, here's the original.. warning: foul language and subject matter that might be offensive

Greetings everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I'm still busy with my keyboard work. However, I oftentimes check out what's happening here. I don't have much to share with regards to music. However, I am listening to this recording of Glen Gould's performance of Bach's Invention 8. This is the next piece my piano teacher wants me to learn. I'm looking forward to this new piano journey.

I love listening to Gould's recordings.
Although once they kinda freaked me out.. It was late at night, and I was by myself and had just gotten into my car. I had a CD of his in the CD player, and it started to play after I started the car. I was doing something before driving off, and I kept hearing someone making sounds and for a split second I thought someone else was in my car grin

I'm so excited for you, Griffin! That's so awesome that now you have the time to really jump into playing. I hope I'm in good health when I retire.

Thanks Aimee! I feel very fortunate to have all of this happening. If all goes well, I'll be able to do a respectable performance of Clair de Lune in a few months! I'm really excited about that as well. smile

Wayne, thanks for the selection by Sade. It was a pleasure to listen to.

Aimee, I hope things are going well with your new job. It usually takes about a year to get accustomed to things. BTW, I hadn't heard anything by Lou Reed in a long time.

Recaredo, I'm looking forward to listening to the Haydn selection and the violin sonata today after I get some piano practice done, and a few household chores completed. Listening to your choices will be my reward for getting my other work done! smile

I hope everyone is doing well. I'm hoping to share some music a bit later this week. Right now I've got lots to get done. I'll check in later.

Hi Griffin, I hope you enjoyed those postings.


And now a historical filmation. It's a brief video on the piano quintet of Shostakovich, played on the piano by the composer himself. I find it quite moving.

There is something so beautiful about NA flute music. Simple melodies that just carry me away. The Northern Lights fascinate as well and seem other worldly. Darn it...now I'm sleepy again grin

Ok a little late, but..
I know this might sound harsh but I think that clip is a perfect example of why Salinger didn't like his stories made into movies. They left half of the conversation out, which left the characters seeming cold and insipid.
I had to reread the short story after watching it to make it right again! 38-year-old me has different opinions than the 22 year old me, and I think I might need to think about why Seymour killed himself some more. Unfortunately now those opinions are slightly tainted with the knowledge from the biography.


I need to stop thinking about it or I will start re-reading all of my Salinger books and I really have no business doing so for the next couple of months.

I like my new job. It is the polar opposite of what I was doing before.. I just need to get used to having these "normal" hours. Almost done with week three and I still am fighting it.

Ragdoll, I liked that! It's hard to choose which is better - the images or the music?


Well, I accidentally bought The Great Courses lectures on Schumann in CD format instead of DVD format. Strangely enough, I am more likely to listen in the the car than sit and watch it. So far it's been a fascinating topic, and I am learning about his music.
One work I am finding interesting is his Carnaval. It's got 21 pieces in it, and they are pieces describing people and characters; along with being a cryptogram of sorts. This comes from Wikipedia:

For Schumann the four notes were encoded puzzles, and he predicted that "deciphering my masked ball will be a real game for you."[1] The 21 pieces are connected by a recurring motif. In each section of Carnaval there appears either or both of two series of musical notes. These are musical cryptograms, as follows:

A, E-flat, C, B - signified in German as A-S-C-H
A-flat, C, B - signified in German as As-C-H
E-flat, C, B, A - signified in German as S-C-H-A.

The first two spell the German name for the town of Asch (this is now Aš in the Czech Republic), in which Schumann's then fiancée, Ernestine von Fricken, was born. The sequence of letters also appears in the German word Fasching, meaning carnival. Asch is also German for "Ash," as in Ash Wednesday, the first day of Lent. It also encodes a version of the composer's name, Robert Alexander Schumann. The grouping S-C-H-A encodes the composer's name again with the musical letters appearing in Schumann, in their correct order.


So here's Schumann's Carnaval from a local competition a while back.

Aimee, glad to see you are happy with your new job, and congrats on your last ABF recital, that Clementi was really great. This afternoon I will enjoy the Carnaval you posted, now it's time to practise until lunch.

Happy weekend to everybody!

Thanks Recaredo! That piece was a bit of a bear technically, but I learned so much from it.

Speaking of recital, the Bruce Hornsby performance made me want to hear my favorite Bruce Hornsby:
