Music, Anyone?
I'm still playing piano every day, but it's been a long time since I posted any performances. Are you people actually listening to them? Do you want to hear more? Encourage me, please... it helps.

I wrote a piano-only arrangement of The Simpsons Theme by Danny Elfman. It's among one of the hardest pieces I've ever tried to play, mainly because of the fast tempo (170 bpm), numerous key changes (Um, six modulations in a 60 second piece), and long sixteenth-note runs... many of them on scales I don't normally play (dreaded whole-scales). Anyway, although I'm still working out the kinks, but I'm looking forward to recording that one.

I haven't downloaded anything of yours yet, but that's partially because I was hoping to hear it in person. :)

Heh heh... be careful. Once you get me in front of the piano, it's hard to get me to stop. I've bored many houseguests.

When are you coming to visit us?

Bah.. I'm a musician myself. My first boyfriend dropped out of school to do nothing but compose for the piano. I think I can handle it. :)

I dunno when I'm coming over; we should figure out a day/time. :)

I think it's safe to say I'm your biggest fan. TEH3
