Working constantly on very long and strange multi-instrumental pieces. At this time, doing - Conqueror - The Hydrogen Sonata - Navigation - The Forecast and practising Bach pieces on the classical guitar Yrs DS Sept 2018
An entire world to explore, and create. I am mostly interested in instrumental music, not so important what genre as long as it has a certain complexity. I prefer composed music over improvised, although I like an element of that in the playing. I am attracted to how simple elements and short melodies can be combined and varied; i.e., an element of mathematics. It is not just random that I am fascinated by some classical composers and e. g., the longer instrumental pieces by M. Oldfield. In particular, I have noted that music I tend to become most attached to wasn't obvious at the first listening, but rather did grow on me. So, I guess I nowadays am very open to vague, intriging, non-standard stuff, where the main points might emerge later deep into the tracks. Like Sibelius 7th Symphony, with it's enormous but subtle beauty revealing itself only to the listener taking the full ride into the 5th minute of the first movement: a hidden treasure, no sign saying "this is it!". That is what I seek, those kind of secret diamonds, far away from the charts...
No particular, I simply go on doing what I must: play, and compose.
Stopping AI systems from flooding you with "More of what you like". And, of course, Peace on Earth.
No particular. My taste was junk at the time.
J.S. Bach. I keep returning to his 4 suites for guitar (well, lute), amazing monumental music. So much else, too much to mention
Spare time: if nothing else going on, I switch on the power.
No messages. I make music for my own sake. Because a strong inner drive to do so. It is like baking your own bread.
Prefer to play alone.
Promising, now when SC became totally flatlined after removing the "Group" feature
Pain from too much practicing. I get it when I need it the least...
I don't think 'locally', I couldn't care less: I am a world citizen.
How about real quality?
