    "Patterns" - A poly-rhythm composition

    All,

    Here is a reposting of my "Patterns" for newer members of the forum who may not have heard it. This is the GPO Steinway piano:

    Here is the GPO harpsichord version. It doesn't possess the "fire" of the piano version because dynamics are next to impossible with an instrument like the harpsichord:

    I enjoy downloading your songs, but they're always too complicated for me. It makes me feel a bit dumb sometimes.

    Anyways, thanks for thinking about us new guys.

    Superb piano writing -- and a top-flight piece, perfectly rendered!

    ...or adrenal cortex or something.

    Glad that you liked my humble effort, Mr. Dahveed. Thank you.

    LGA Bach (Most especially the French Suites... only more "fugue"). Also brings up Schickele Mix (I have know idea why, or what that means).

    I hope my comments are taken in the positive light they are meant. Fun piece to listen to, and I would agree with the previous comment, "nicely rendered".

    Also, what a surprisingly good sounding piano to be tucked inside an orchestral library. Helpful post. Thank you.

    I don't understand part of your comment. WHAT brings up Schickele Mix? I am familiar with Peter Schickele but I don't get the connection.

    I am glad that you liked this work. I consider it my best keyboard composition. Perhaps it's a bit too "aggressive" in places.

    Thanks for listening.

    Thanks for the reply, and I hope you'll forgive the reference if it just doesn't fit. I like that program (Schickele Mix) but honestly do not catch it all that often. Only when I'm driving my daughter to a particular ballet class.

    I think what calls it up for me are a couple of programs I heard of his that had a mix of baroque and more contemporary pieces. One in particular referenced a couple of pieces by Phillip Glass. Anyway, I hope you'll take it as as compliment at best, or just an ill informed comment at the very worst.

    For my money... it's all pretty good company to keep.

    I listened to this one three times! A fine piece of work to my ears.

    Three times?! That must set some kind of record.

    Thanks for listening (three times) and for the nice comment.
