    What Happened to Three?

    Just available:

    Moods (4) (about 4 minutes)


    What happened to Moods (3)? Nothing. It just is not finished. I have a few fragments, but no progress at all beyond that.

    Previous. in case you want to hear them together. About 3 1/2 minutes each.

    Moods (1)


    Moods (2)

    GPO Steinway, of course, with Sonar and Fatar.

    Did you play this 'as is' into your whatever and then change it into GPO?

    I guess what I am asking is this more towards improv or all planned out?

    Nice riff to end it. Fits perfectly!!

    Either way it is very Moody and very enjoyable. A nice minimalistic piece!!

    Well done

    Well, Ron, it was initially sketched with pencil and paper, as all my compositions are. It was played into Sonar using my Fatar keyboard with GPO Steinway as sound source. (One hand at a time, slo mo.) Plenty of editing, but fundamentally, the reason it sounds realistic is that it is input with my pianist's fingers, with the same feel and touch as if I were playing my Baldwin Grand. Incidentally, I do not use the music roll view except to view notes that are off screen in the staff view, or to get an overall view of the velocity shape.

    This piece, and much of my music, is close to, but not quite minimalism. Most of my music is atonal/free tonality, but almost none is serial. Almost always, the whole piece (or movement) derives from the first thirty seconds or so of the piece. It is not always easy to notice this, but that's the way it is. This kind of music makes it very difficult to create a good, solid ending, which is why some of my endings might seem strange or surprising, but they work well.

    I enjoyed the latest addition to your set of “moods” and am looking forward to the missing number 3. Thanks for posting your working process. I find it interesting to hear how different people come up with their music.

    Lovely and pacific, Richard; an almost delicate and very
    worthwhile addition to this growing suite.

    This one, again, to me, has a sense of water, fluidity,
    so characteristic of some of your other works a while
    back.

    Much enjoyed!

    Best,

    Inventive yet accesible, very effective.

    You created some very interesting sounds from your piano. Thanks for posting.
