Another microtonal piece, this time dividing the octave in 10 equal parts (as opposed to the usual 12).

Hold down "preset" and press 0 - should hopefully fix this.

Tried it, but it sounded even worse. Now how do I break it again?

This is how all music would sound if we adopted the metric system for music!   ;)  I kid.

Actually the microtonal scale created a dissonance that matched the subject matter of the footage. 

Well done!

While this is a classical piano piece, it does have a place discussing electronic instruments.  This instrument sound is the EastWest Pianos Steinway D sample.  The important fact is this is all MIDI created.

Dave Smith, by creating MIDI, you have helped me tremendously in creating piano performances.  I have nerve damage in right arm (age related) and it is difficult for me to record a clean performance.  Recording by MIDI allows me to digitally go into the performance and fix my errors. 

Enjoy!

Absolutely gorgeous, Jim.  And I'm sure your mistakes would only have improved Beethoven's piece!  It may be "pop" classical music, but I've always loved Moonlight Sonata.  Now if only MIDI would allow us to fix our mistakes in live performances!

Regarding your comments on Beethoven, it strikes me that, when a person endures personal sorrow with virtue, the world is blessed with another introspective painfully sweet composition, as in this case.  But when a person responds to sorrow without virtue, the world is afflicted either with more ugliness or with more violence.  Thank God Beethoven chose the high road.

I had to practice this piece as a kid at the age of about 11 years. And I hated it! I wanted to play music that sounded more fun and more like the stuff I listened to on the radio.

Ironically, it was in my stormy puberty when I learned to love classical music. I was looking for my old sheets and practiced this piece again and had a lot of fun while doing so.

At the moment I don't play my real piano very often, because of job, girlfriend, rock band, synthesizers ;-)... but when I do, I still love to play this song. It's one of my all-time-favorites.

Tim, the Prophet 08 improv is beautiful. I'm sure the Evolver one is, too, but I haven't gotten around to listening to it yet. I don't know why I decided to click on Prophet first.

jdt9517, I love a bit of the Ludwig Van. I never learned Moonlight, but the first movement of Sonata Pathetique was the hardest piece I ever had to tackle. Listening to Beethoven and playing Beethoven both make me cry for entirely different reasons :) Well done!

Thanks, Jason.  I guess your instinct is prophetic!  Or perhaps you like rivers more than lakes?

I haven't uploaded a video in a while as I'm currently in pre production on a short film I'll be directing in November. I've been swamped in pre-production and trust me that's a great thing. I'm very fortunate to have met a wonderful producer in Toronto here who really is helping me get things going. I'm very fortunate and blessed to be surrounded by so many supportive and wonderful people.

Howard Shore's score for Videodrome is quite a unique score. What he did was he scored and recorded a real string orchestra and then re-sampled that recording into his Synclavier synthesizer. So the whole score has synthesized string recordings and authentic string recordings which fits the film's plot perfectly.

I used the Prophet-X for this and approached it in a similar way. I used the beautiful string samples from 8Dio and layered them with the same strings but altered through frequency modulation and amplitude modulation. Lots of Bit and Hack used on the strings as well as some oscillators mixed in there as well. I think it turned out very well. Hope you enjoy! Long Live The New Flesh!!!

One thing I've learned about YouTube: if you don't post music with some regularity, then you quickly lose your audience.  Even a few weeks can cost you.  My preferred standard is one or two pieces about every two weeks.  Anything less than that and you quickly become relegated to a "dead channel" status, and that's in spite of having hundreds of subscribers.  There are definitely tricks to this game.
