How to Explore the Stars Without Ever Leaving Home


#ever #explore #home #leaving #stars #without
 
Early in my community’s #lockdown a few months ago, I chose #Bach’s #Toccata in C minor to include in my fledgling #sheltering at #home #recordings series. I was just beginning to experiment with recording #solo #classical #piano with a digital piano, and the results varied widely. This toccata was one of several initial attempts I eventually...

#Sheltering at #home #recordings continues with the #transcription by Franz #Liszt of Robert #Schumann’s #Widmung. A couple days ago I presented a performance of #Clara Schumann’s treatment of Robert’s great lied, and it’s still the version I prefer. But many people adore Liszt’s version, and it makes for a great #encore piece, so I decided to learn it for some imagined encore in the future.

I studied a few performances before recording this, and I discovered to my delight that some pianists choose to ignore Liszt’s crescendo at the very end. This I believe is the more appropriate way to finish the piece.

It's likely I'm one of the last artists of my generation that doesn't have their own website. I've always gone against the grain when it came to making music and making a living, but now it seems I'll have to look into acquiring a website to gain some control over the increase in material I've produced in my lockdown time. #Soundcloud continues to lob #copyright #bots at me for successive uploads of my performances of compositions in the #public #domain.

For now, as a stop gap measure, I turn to #reverbnation, which I've used off and on over the years.

Today felt like a #gigue, with the perfect weather outdoors, clear skies, calm winds, plentiful sunshine. One of my favorites:

Gigue from English Suite in A minor, BWV 807, J.S. Bach

How do make a #pianist feel #vulnerable?

Have them play this piece.

#Sheltering at #home #recordings continues with probably the most well known composition associated with children or beginners at piano. A staple of student studio recitals, it’s rarely if ever programmed in “serious” concerts, although sometimes included as an encore.

While it’s charming when played by children or beginners, it gains a “darker” mood in one’s twilight years. Life coming full circle perhaps.

#Sheltering at #home #music returns to the #basement today, because #weekends in #suburbia are filled with the cacophony of #lawnmowers all hours of daylight, making acoustic recording impossible.

When I was young, my #piano teachers tried unsuccessfully to have me learn #Brahms. Later in life, I described my childhood relationship to Brahms as somewhat like that to the eccentric, intimidating (bearded) uncle who I’d only understand after I grew to adulthood. I regret not being closer to him younger.

If my teachers had started me with this piece (like I have my students do), I might have appreciated Brahms earlier.

Sonata for Oboe and Piano, 1st mvt., BWV 1030b, J.S. Bach


#Sheltering at #home #music has finally moved out of the #basement, now that the #piano has been tuned. Laura and I chose the second of two takes (which was really the third of three takes, but due to human error—mine actually—the first take never recorded). It was a frustrating sequence of events, but we decided the last take was good enough for leisure.

Laura will use this to open her studio (virtual) recital tomorrow, which is in the final stage of video editing. All her students performed splendidly on camera.

Les Sauvages, Jean-Philippe Rameau


#Sheltering at #home #music continues with a composer I rarely play, as pianists tend to favor #Bach or #Scarlatti for their #baroque fix. Also, I’m not confident in my #ornamentation realizations, so I’m sure my execution doesn’t reflect an “authentic” practice. But I came across this piece surfing YouTube last night and found it delightful enough to study today.

Sheltered Home Music


What was formerly called #basement #isolation #recordings has become #sheltered #home #music, as mandates for distancing are gradually lifted. I learned a lot about recording a digital piano that I never would have without this pandemic, and as a result I regard it less a hindrance. But it’s time to move on.

I finally got my #acoustic piano tuned, by a masked and gloved tech, and I hope... Show more...
 

Copyright bots and classical musicians are fighting online. The bots are winning.


Some of you are aware of my dispute with #SoundCloud, when they twice blocked uploads of my #home #recordings of the #Goldberg #Variations, a work long in the public domain, claiming them to contain copyrighted performances by two different pianists. (Oddly, it wasn’t the #aria that was picked out by the #bot, but the first #variation. I would have thought the aria to be a much simpler and more recognizable measure.)

I haven’t had any issues after these disputes were resolved, so they must have marked me as a low risk. But it still sucks that #classical musicians are presumed guilty before innocent.

The case for … making low-tech ‘dumb’ cities instead of ‘smart’ ones
https://www.theguardian.com/cities/2020/jan/15/the-case-for-making-low-tech-dumb-cities-instead-of-smart-ones
It is eminently possible to weave ancient knowledge of how to live symbiotically with nature into how we shape the cities of the future, before this wisdom is lost forever. We can rewild our urban landscapes, and apply low-tech ecological solutions to drainage, wastewater processing, flood survival, local agriculture and pollution that have worked for indigenous peoples for thousands of years, with no need for electronic sensors, computer servers or extra IT support.

Iraq Gives the US Its Marching Orders. What Part of “Go Home” Don’t You Understand?
 
from a youtube comment on my log home:

My response:
translation: " #Shame on the trees you cut Yazikkkk very pity" (as near as I can tell).....
1. believe it or not, I'm using less trees than a similar sized home made from 2x4's.
2. these are fast-growing pines- they will replenish themselves in 20-30 years.
3. I used the entire tree- minus the bark. unlike standard #2x4's where much of the tree is discarded or turned into sawdust. My bark will make good mulch, so absolutely no waste. Also unlike a 2x4 built home- highly #processed wood, goes through a lot of machinery and #waste before being used in a #home.

Mossville: When Great Trees Fall


Mossville, Louisiana is a shadow of its former self – a community rich in natural resources and history, founded by formerly enslaved people, where neighbors lived in harmony, insulated from the horrors of Jim Crow. Today, however, Mossville no longer resembles the town it once was. Surrounded by 14 #petrochemical plants, Mossville is the future site of apartheid-born South African-based chemical company Sasol’s newest plant – a $21.2 billion project and the largest in the western hemisphere.

The community struggles to let go of their #... Show more...

Zwei gewagte Sprünge in einem Video: Paar aus Russland gerät wegen Achtlosigkeit in Kritik


Die Eltern aus Jekaterinburg nahmen das Video ursprünglich für das Videoportal TikTok auf. Die Kamera hielt fest, wie die Frau in die Arme des Mannes sprang. Im selben Augenblick sprang ihr zweijähriger Sohn von seinem Etagenbett auf eine auf dem Boden liegende Matratze. Das Kind prallte dabei ab und machte einen gefährlichen Purzelbaum. Anscheinend zog sich der Junge zwar keine Verletzungen zu, aber das akrobatische Exerzitium hätte für ihn böse enden können. Das Paar bemerkte den gefährlichen Sprung ihres Sohnes nicht, die Frau strahlte vor Glück und bekam anschließend einen Wangenkuss von ihrem Partner.
