The Chopin attachment plays fine for me. If you remember, you posted this here back in 2012 and got some positive feedback. Listening again I find that the novelty has since worn off. Yes, it is very skillfully, maybe even artfully done. No, I don't like the style, and I don't think it adds a new dimension to the piece. Maybe that is because I am not a qualified musician - few of us here are.
Thank you for the positive criticism from your personal perspective.
I marvel at how many times you can use the word 'emotionally' in one thread. Your website is full of it too, and full of other terms like unique, talent, etc. By all means let people decide for themselves ! You cannot make people appreciate something by repeatedly telling them how wonderful it is.
Yes, you are right... and admit handling my inherited gift badly. So, I maybe even be misunderstood. In doing so, I'm actually trying to honor evolution; the gifts of our ancestors; i.e not myself, because personally we are at best only able to amend our inherited traits by about 5%. So, in that sense I am merely factually pointing out the the presence of emotional values, which evolution bestowed onto my musical creativity. Yes, I also agree that "letting people decide for themselves" whether they are willing (able) to acknowledge these existing values, otherwise their well-known, negative traits might be activated, yes, I know.
That's where misunderstanding comes in, because I did my homework on that years ago: the moment I discovered my "musical inheritance", I was desperate for confirmation of its quality level. I.e. albeit my hearing and musical feelings seemed to tell me that I'm doing something right, I needed the confirmation of my idols. I made appointment with various renowned, local musicians for an audition and they all were confirming my findings. I then even submitted some of my works to world renown musicians and gratefully received their detailed analysis of my musical creativity. From then on it went only up and I admit having had trouble handling all the countless commendations in a humble manner. - It might stem from the fact that I ran into philosophical/ psychological conflict, because on one hand I had to proof to young people that "I'm the greatest" to gain their admiration, philosophical motivation and co-operation, yet on the other hand I'm supposed to "allow others to decide the value of our evolutionary legacy"... and to humbly play it down.
In this forum I was merely aiming at cooperation with creatively minded musicians in order to produce some great recordings and taking into account the sad fact that there seems no interest at all, you are right concluding that that it has no point to try convincing anyone, for the way I went about, it might only lead to misunderstandings and worse.
It renders your website a bit of a joke, actually, not to mention the bad photos. The one of you kissing your late aunt on the mouth must be the worst I've ever seen on anybody's personal site. Such emotional memorabilia had best be kept private. All this is just my personal opinion of course !
Back to fun & joke: There too, it seems the bug of misunderstanding invaded and overran its intended purpose. Most of the people, perusing my website, are people who view its content in context with my philosophical mentality. It is my way of honoring a great lady, to whom I am deeply indebted. "She"... is the lady who bestowed me with true love and affection, the first 9 years of my life! - Thanks to her... I am able to enjoy true contentment in life. Unfortunately, my four siblings were brought up strictly Catholic ...and the rest I better keep private, as you too, would agree. Yet, what's wrong with promoting evidence of happiness? Yes, in a way I agree... that to many people pictures of true love look downright ridiculous and silly! My sibling think that, too.
Hence, all these life experiences taught me an awful lot of insight, because I happened to be able to logically correct sort it out; again, thanks to my ancestors and that's why I find it so hard to hide it all. The trouble is that many people dislike to view such triumphs as something positive and sadly, prefer to dwell in negativity. I don't blame them, for not all of us enjoyed at least the first four years of their life true love and affection and that's where usually things go wrong... in life.
