    Default An example of my playing (and improvisational skills)

    If this belongs in todays composers, please move it. I figured it could go here because it's a recording of me playing the piece. Fantasy.mp3. I'll post something else of me playing Bach, later. The clicking sound is the sustain pedal.

    The opinion that nearly overwhelms everything else is that the recording is way too close-miced. Difficult to listen to.

    Aside from that, the playing is deficient in dynamics; no pianissimo, very little forte; maybe that's a characteristic of the piece, which is pretty simple, as played anyway.

    Sorry, Manok. The sample is pretty much useless to me (a non-pianist). I can't tell from it if you should limit your playing to bar rooms, or are Carnegie ready.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    It was meant as a simple piece. I've got more complicated, but didn't feel like recording them just yet. Sorry I don't have any recording equipment other than my ipod.

    Well, it sounds fine...but I'm waiting for the Bach because even I can play this and I'm not a trained pianist in any way...so, look forward to hearing more complicated stuff and Bach; with Bach I can tell you exactly where you are. Keep on playin'!

    Sorry, I need to know the piece to give an opinion, so I'm with kv up there.

    Honestly, Manok, i didn't mind it at all.

    I thought it was good, for someone just sitting at the piano and going with the flow. Slightly drunk at a party, listening to you at the piano i would've said: rock on, dude...

    But seriously, did you record this with a toaster or what?

    If you want some insight on dynamics and development, check out this performance by André Gagnon, in the same mood as yours, perhaps more lyrical:
