Robert Fisher replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Does this work as a solo?
"Hey guys I really appreciate all the feedback and ideas. I've made some fairly minor (aka big) changes to keep as a solo version and I'm taking the full version and going in a completely different direction. Thanks again. "

John Driscoll replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Does this work as a solo?
"I think this works fine as a solo piano piece, but I would say that, even within your somewhat minimalistic aesthetic, there might be an opportunity for a bit more harmonic modulation.  In particular, at 2:09 you seem to come a rather final cadence…"

"Im really honestly very confused..its almost as if this review below from another poster is based on a different piece than I listened to:
You begin with a chord pattern which lasts almost 2:30 min.
It is proper to introduce a piece with chords that…"

Lawrence Aurich replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Does this work as a solo?
"Robert,
     You begin with a chord pattern which lasts almost 2:30 min.   It is proper to introduce a piece with chords that may last up to four measures but after that something has to happen, i.e. melody.  I don't hear much melody until the last…"

"For me it most definitely works as a solo..a very beautiful, reflective solo that is very touching, and builds up really nicely indeed.
I enjoyed this very much--thanks so much for posting!
Thanks Bob https://soundcloud.com/bob-morabito"

"Hi Robert,
I don't quite get what you mean! This sounds of a piece to me with other things you have written, all of which I would consider to be solo works. Are you indicating that you are trying to get a "set" together - enough material to perform…"

"I've reworked the string intro to this a couple of times and think I'm finally ok with it. I've also considered ditching it entirely. If anyone has any specific feedback there that'd be awesome. "

"Wow this is deep and pensive... especially the quieter parts... time stands still.
I absolutely dig this. Wonderful work."

"Lawrence - This was at the top of an extremely popular hiking trail outside Seattle, WA called Rattlesnake Ledge.

Marco - Thank you! I see what you're saying regarding reverb. The video was color graded but I'm genuinely curious what you may have…"

Marco Di Stefano replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Fjall - Music Video
"Very nice work Robert,
I enjoyed the video and music.
Since I am a perfectionist let me add a few things I would have added on the production, not on the composition which I find very pleasant.
The sound of the piano sounds too close to me, which is…"

"What mountains are you surrounded by?   Finger syncing, must be a new recording term.  It is excusable since the peaks are covered with snow, so playing piano in near freezing temps can't be that easy.  I liked the piece and even more the fact that…"

"Kjell, thank you! The audio recording was already done so I was playing along much as would happen in a typical music video. The pianist version of lip syncing basically. 

John - thank you for the feedback. I had considered doing what you describe…"

John Driscoll replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Fjall - Music Video
"This is a cool video and I like the piece.  One suggestion would be to add some ambient nature/outdoor sound effects, at least at the beginning of the video, to set the audience in the location before you start playing.  The visuals are lovely but…"

"What an artwork. I enjoyed every moment of it, being a nature lover myself. Congrats to you.
I am curious about how it was produced. I can't see any recording equipment in the movie although your playing is remarkably synchronous which is essential…"

Keith J Hampton replied to Robert Fisher's discussion Umbra
"Nice work!  Deceptively simply melody which gives way to a more layered build. I like the addition of the vocal tracks toward the end (were those real humans?) and thought it helped bring the piece into more emotive territory than just piano/strings…"
