Hi everyone,

I thought I'd post a little something since It's been such a long time. Here is #1 from my Eggshell Dances. This is the Garritan Steinway "close" position.

As always, thanks for listening.

Jamie:

Very delicate and a well-written piano piece.

Also, your rendering was "right on." Couldn't tell
the difference between the new Steinway and a
real piano.

Just a great listen, Jamie, even though it was only
1m26s.

BRAVO,

Jack

Nicely done, Jamie!

I'm quite a fan of small pieces like this, made
from a minimum of materials, concisely built.

Looking forward to more of these...

My best,



David

Very enjoyable!

The rendering is so good it is hard to believe it isn't a real Steinway. The nuances of this delightful and delicate composition are perfectly brought out.

I hope you will post some more dances,

Herb

It has been a while since I have heard a piece from you.

This is very playful and has some high energy as well.

Pity it is so short

I liked this! It has a charm to it like a small room with a fireplace to make one feel comfortable.

Thanks for posting your music.

Thanks, Tony. I'm not sure if you meant eggshells laughing, but I like the image. :)

Hi Jack,

Thanks for listening and for the comment. I'm very pleased with the rendering, and I'm glad you found it realistic. That speaks volumes for the quality of the library, of course. The technology was very transparent for me while building this... I just input the notes. The reverb is the built-in one found in the Steinway player. Other than that, just some very gentle compression on the track.

Thanks for the post, David. I'm glad you like the piece.

"Minimum of materials," is a pretty apt description of this, especially compared to my often free from stream-of-consciousness process. I used just a few idea "germs" and mutated them in multiple ways, letting my ear dictate where the fragments should land.

One or two more will follow, but I don't have a specific timetable for these, as I'm also working on a very large orchestral piece that's been on my plate for over a year.

Thanks again.
