I haven't got video of this, just audio. My own composition.

Now, some of you might think I'm mad for posting this, but it had to be done ūüôā

If you've ever hear something you don't understand, then try to play it, this is what might happen. If you can't play piano very well, well so much the better!

I downloaded the file then opened it with my VLC media player.

Id need a larger sample to know whether or not I like it; a minute and 5 seconds was too short....Sounded as though it had that 50s beatnik wollowing through the scales off key sort of thing.  I might like it if I understood it to be a prelude to something different.

Stop it with the rude comments geez, everyone is free to like, not like or be neutral towards someone else music! not being sure about a song doesn't mean we dislike the person or are trying to be mean to it. Opinions are to be expected when something is presented to others.

I've written a PM to a few people about what I wont tolerate here. Unfortunately it would be a real shame to ban anyone from this forum especially when the contributions have been so good. However, if the abuse causes bad feelings and tension around here it's not pleasant for the rest of us to read.

If anyone feels like being abusive, please take a break and leave the forum for a while and come back when you have calmed down.

I will eventually ban someone if it keeps up. This is a warning.

For anyone with a Mac. The way to right-click is to hold the control key down while clicking on the file or whatever you desire to right click.

thumbs-up

Thanks for your post Jim. I can see that you are very creative.

Comon, guys! Didn't you hear Ravel? How there can be something scary after him?  Joking! rofl Don't ban me! I like Ravel actually.

@--Jim--: i think we are similarly mad. I like this type of music. I can listen to it for a long time without getting tired of it. It makes my brain itchy. =)

Downloaded it to my mp3 player thumbs-up looking forward to hear some more your mp3s! amuse

Jim,

Although I can't say this is my favorite music, I can't get it out of my head.  It was playing and stopped so abrubtly and I found myself wanting more.

 

I think I'm glad I missed all the bad stuff in this post. I don't want to know what went on.

I'm one of the three that got a warning by FM and I will so not be rude to anyone. But please understand my comments when I give you feedback on your playing as it will really help you in the long run to learn and be a better musician. Joe and Composer lets just be friends since we love the violin.

This forum is full of nice people from around the world, united by our love for violin/fiddle.  We do differ in our taste.  We differ in our opinion.  We differ in our culture.  Yet we love each other as a fellow violinist.  We appreciate whenever somebody comes up with a video of his/her playing.  Let us take this forum to still high a level as we are fast approaching 1000 mark in our membership and 1500 fb likes.
