"Thanks! I like the score scrolling as well, although I'm not suer what to do with orchestral pieces since there's too much to show in a video."

Jack Pickett replied to Kento's discussion had an orchestral piece performed recently! (mp3 & sheet music)
"Hi Kento - here is that link for you: Tippets 2nd Symphony (mve 3) - I think a technique to be considered is to think of dynamics rhythmically as well as sonically - a change of pace accompanied by a change in the rhythmic structures."

    I haven't used it for a while because I've been promoting my book America vs. America but I'm starting to get back into music slowly.

    Thanks for asking.

  • Hi there,
    glad you asked. It's a greek island. =) Its northwest of Greece and east of Sicely... Its a nice place with tourism and all in summer. As for the University is the best I think in Greece on the music deps, and maybe one of the finest in Europe. You could Google up Ionian University and also visit www.ionio.gr
  • Thank you Kento for your friend request. I hope quite soon to upload several new pieces made in Yamaha Motif environment, improvised using 2 keyboards.
  • Yes, I still use this site. How are you? I just haven't been doing much composition lately. Take care.

  • In a Lake-Life. Now that is an interesting piece. How is it performed? Did you play the parts by hand using a VST or are those live instruments? They sound very convincing, very musical. Well done!
