Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"Yes, if the question is amended to "Can you tell which is which?  Live PIANO performance or artificial?" Olmn said:

For some people, that's the whole point under discussion.

Practically NO ONE can tell the difference. 

If you say, you can't tell…"

Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"O., I can't tell which of these files were recorded with microphones and which were artificially produced.  For me, piano is unique in the way its sound lends itself to artificial reproduction.   Olmn said:
I'm glad you enjoyed them.  If you…"

Tim Lawler replied to Olmnilnlolm's discussion The Experiment: Can you tell which is which? LIVE performance or ARTIFICIAL?
"O., I listened to each sample file and enjoyed them all.  In my listening experience piano is the hardest instrument to differentiate between an acoustic source and an artificial one (given that the artificial is well executed, as here). 

That…"

"Wes, I enjoyed this very much.  It has a delicate, sincere and expressive feel.  I like the simplicity of it.  The placement of the ornaments in the upper voice was quite well done.  This is the kind of piece that would benefit, re how it comes…"

"Hi Roman.  I'd love to get a copy of the score of 2 Allegro to do a guitar ensemble recording of it.  Any chance you have it in pdf form?"

I often wonder what it was like to be a kithara or lyre player in ancient Greece.   ...where there were no expectations based on music's history, just emotional and intellectual response from listeners based on the artistic moment. …"

Tim Lawler replied to Rodney Carlyle Money's discussion Resurrection for Marching Band (Woodwinds, Brass, and Percussion)
"I agree about the vi7 but it wasn't just the harmony at m.17 that caught me.  It was also (more-so) the way the horn was set in the mix and the sudden, and perfectly balanced, dynamic shift behind it.  Rodney Carlyle Money said:

  • 2Allegro.pdf Hi Tim ! I'm glad that you're interested. pdf score are there. but I do not know how to write music for the guitar. so that simply written in four staves. I think  three is enough . You can change and adapt this to the guitar.

  •  Tim, thanks for the comment. I think the trio would sound interesting.  2 allegro written for four guitars. Is it convenient to play a guitarist?

  • Thank you, Tim, for your comment on The Llittle Prelude.  And sorry if you get 2 responses from me (as I'm not sure it went through the first time around).  I will post it to the "music analysis and critique" forum a little later.  Best!
