    Hi Guys,

    I did something new that this site has not got...this is the music in late modern, by the French composer i believe, Here you go Monica-Piano lady..this is what I was talking about...
    I hope you all like it.

    Ps. This is straight out of oven, no editing involved only 1.7sec silence added in the beginning.

    Now this is something you'd hear in a hotel lounge :p
    Pretty inconsequential cross-over music that could have been written (or improvised)
    by anybody. But pleasing, and very well played. Your piano sounds better than usual here
    and so does your playing.

    Thanks pal. in hotel room the pianist they improvise and make it as hard as you like or easy at all different rhythm since the audience are not too serious about its music interpretation.

    You reckon my piano sounds better than usual..its may be I did the recording at 10pm and LESS notes or harmony were played, therefore a better sound???? But i only tune my piano every months if I had too just to fix up few notes that is unbearable. Normally I had 2 or 3 notes.

    If you like this sorts of music I HAVE PLENTY.....but I think it would OVERLOAD your hard drive space....
    :oops:

    Nice playing of this comforting music. In Sweden, we call it Elevator music ;). What I did not understand was if you wish us to put it up on the site? Never heard of the composer before.

    :lol: in the US too.

    I wrote some elevator music when I was in high school. My mom still tries to make me play it, and I have to be forceful with her sometimes. :lol:

    That is well played, for sure. The melody flowed "like oil".

    I dare you to play a Chopin Etude like that!

    thanks everyone.

    Back to Rberts question, this type of music was composed by two french man in early 1980s..I think, since it was a big trend in Asia so as in some US conterparts. But the music was well promoted by Richard Clayderman....I knew some one would hated it after I mentioned his name. But strictly speaking, Clayderman was a good marketing pianist, but in PS, I pay my respect to these two composers..... what do you think? add this on site??/ Not sure what biographer I had..
