I've spent the past few months learning Clint Mansell's Lux Aeterna, otherwise known as Requiem for a Dream. It's a piece I enjoy very much and have wanted to play since I found some videos of other people playing it on youtube.
I made a few small mistakes but they are hardly noticeable. It wasn't my best day for recording myself playing.
In January and February I was a data science fellow at The Data Incubator and worked very, very hard on projects and assignments to learn more about Python and data science tools. But now that that's over, I have time for other things.
I fixed my laptop and can now record videos of myself playing piano again. Here's Erik Satie's Gnossienne #4:
I made a few minor mistakes here and there but overall I am very happy about it. The broken cords make this a difficult piece to play.
Also, I updated this website theme! Much better than the previous one.
My new audio recorder and microphone arrived this week. After a little experimentation I figured out how to hook it up to my computer and make a video with it and a webcam. I still need to tune my piano, but I do believe this is a vast improvement over the previous videos. The zoom microphone makes a huge difference.
The piano tuner arrives on Friday. After that I will re-record everything and repost to youtube and soundcloud.
