Forgotten Dreams by Leroy Anderson. A sweet short piece 1m46s transcribed for the #piano. vimeo.com/544243481

If you don't know who Leroy Anderson did, he is probably most famous for the typewriter youtube.com/watch?v=Zj1P5Ax5OZ

I've not played piano in a while..

My head is kinda empty trying to remember the chords!
when I don't think they are there. When I think they are all gone!

I think i have played this before (in fact sure i have)...

but whatever.. take two went ok!

Nightingale Sang in Berkely Square

April in Paris .. I always liked the Count Basie version.. it's featured in the Mel Brooks movie "Blazing Saddles"

anyway.. I thought.. i'll watch a youtube of some people playing it on piano, get some ideas of how I might want to play it.

This fella pops up.. It's really good..
but then at the end he goes ..

- Talent
- Intelligence
- Time

you can be good at this too"

I've been playing this lovely piece off and on for ages. I love it and enjoy returning to play it. Schumann's Of Foreign Lands and Peoples from his childhood scenes series. Australian's will know it from the film My Brilliant Career. #piano #classical vimeo.com/489117932

Actually I think it's F locrian! I often get confused with modes n stuff

Putting this here, because it's got some piano in it.
This is the 4th take I recorded of this melody and harmonisation.
I think of it as in the Locrian mode of Gflat, but really in Eflat minor I suppose.

I spent quite a long time thinking about the harmonies and melody.

It's also got a lyric.. not quite sure how it fits.. I try to think of feeling, and how I articulate that feeling, then use that for a melody and chords...

Anyway here you go

#noisevember 14
#PatchNotes 1

this is my attempt at crossfading from #noisevember to something regular-ish, simply posting those little snippets and various experiments from #SuperCollider Workspace.

So how should we call/tag it? I suggest #PatchNotes (via FactMag)

Cm7 noodling with an arpeggiator.. But I tried the scale of Cm blues, B and Fm lydian for a solo over the Cm7 arpeggio.

It would sound better with a sax player and a drummer.

I got a new synth - so here is the obligatory unboxing video. I'm playing on it using just the presets. It's Dm9/Gm9/Bflat
(It's a ASM hydrasynth, the patch is "Na'vi River", the arp is a preset on the Behringer Deepmind 12, the patch is "glass poly")

It's not meant to be anything deep or complicated. Just a first go at trying to use it musically, I've only had the thing a few hours.

I played this in Cm today..
though.. it went wonky at the end.
in future, I won't try to do the Hi NRG riff

Can anyone recommend a keyboard stand?
I don't like mine.. It's an X frame, it's height is controlled by pushing a pin through holes in a circular thing.. But it's either just too high or too low. See picture.. it is quite a common mechanism

Can anyone recommend a keyboard stand that's continuously variable?
Bonus points for two tier and cheap.
