I have 19 posts in 10 years to my name on another piano forum, so don't expect too much. I will try to check in regularly though and if I feel I can make a meaningful contribution I will. (I'm thoroughly aware of the narrow scope of my knowledge and the often contentious opinions I hold.)
I wish to share a video of a piano arrangement with you all.
DISCLAIMER: I know this may come off as marketing. I have nothing to market though. I have a YT channel on which I only recently started posting to try and motivate myself to finish some compositions and arrangements I worked on 30 years ago. In addition I also hope that it may perhaps serve as some sort of portfolio should the need ever arise to convince someone of my abilities such as they are. In the time since then my well of creativity has long dried up, and so the video posting will seize long before I'm eligible for monetisation if that was even ever possible considering it's such a niche product.
Anyway, I decided to post the video here right off the bat less someone thinks I'm up to some shady dealings as a result of me first lurking, then leaving the odd comment only thereafter to pounce with a video.
You all know how you pick up on something all of a sudden, and how an idea can excite you, so when I noticed how remarkably similar Rachmaninov's G minor prelude and Asturias by Albeniz are in terms of key, phrase structure and overall form, I felt I simply had to create some sort of mashup with those two pieces.
This is not my usual type of thing. I didn't spent much time thinking things through since I didn't feel this project justified it, yet conversely I spend hours on the actual notation and visual presentation of the score (being a bit extra when it comes to those matters) and also trying to make the MIDI realisation sort of presentable. But ultimately it's just a bit of silliness. Hope you can appreciate it as such!
This is my version of the new neighbours introducing themselves while offering some home made goodies.
