My new album called “Simple Music for Complicated Times” is out now. This music came about when I accidentally messed up my hands earlier this year and couldn’t do much on the piano. So I decided to write really simple piano music and then use the computer to manipulate the piano sounds the way electronic music producers do.
I’m really pleased with the results. It’s 100% a piano record – all sounds on the recording are generated by the original piano performances. But the extra tools the computer gave me helped to create emotions and moods that I can’t do on the piano alone.
You can check out a video I made of the opening track called “After” here:
Here are links to all the streaming services where you can listen or buy:
I’m excited to share a new video from a recording session I did during the recording of my solo piano album, “Secular Music for Non-Secular Occasions”. This performance is of the piece called, “Song Without Words”. I hope you like it!
The last post on recording yourself with your computer covered the basics when using the built-in computer/pad/phone microphones. This post will cover what you will need to record to your computer with more high-quality microphones. This post includes a lot of images or reference. If you are receiving this via email and can’t see the images, click here.
For the next series of mid-week posts I’m going to cover how to record yourself using a computer. I feel like this is something that is essential for most performers and teachers today. I know there are a ton of tutorials out there on this right now. This is going to be very basic for people new to the process.
