    Wow... I can't believe it took me this long to record one simple little piece. I guess that's what happens when all of your free time is spent working with your drama director till 6:00 PM, and then your choral director till 10:00 PM!

    Well... here it is. And recorded with a new recording interface too!!!
    My next project... rerecord my other pieces I already submitted!!!

    (And you thought you were almost rid of me :wink: )

    minimalist pieces like this are always harder to make perfect. That's because the pianist has fewer notes to use to make an impression. Try to have a standing ovation playing 100 notes....damn hard...now play a piece with 10,000 notes....easier.

    Very well done, nice touch and perfect concentration. I am not sure I agree with your occasional tendency to arpeggiate chords though. The RH sound tends to get a bit muffled at times, I'd wish for a little more Gallic clarity.

    Surely, there is nowhere to hide in these pieces. You play them very well indeed.
    Keep going, and leave the 10000-note warhorses to the juuf :p

    Sounds like an easy enough plan for now! :D

    But give me a month or two to build some confidence, and you might be suprised at some of the stuff I plan on recording :shock: (as soon as I get some time!)
