A thing of beauty...

On second thought - nah. I could have written something lame like "Keats spoke to me in a dream last night, and here's what it sounded like!" But truth is, it's just me with a vocoder.

:evil: Couldn't get it to work.

:shock: Just looked at your site -You're a very busy man Ralf!!

8) Love the studio - I didn't know you were a musician as well - I'm a bit of an amature musician (well self-taught, play by ear-guitarist) myself - don't have my own studio though :!:

Hum? It's just an mp3....you have to click on the link (seems to work fine from this end). Here's the mp3 file directly, if that helps.

(calling it a studio is a bit of a generous description....but the project needed a working title)

Hi,

I can see your copy of Motion's Keats sitting on a pile in your guitar picture! Great song....Endymion....I really enjoyed it. Great lyrics too! :wink:

but left our world on a melancholic wing
and fled the sorrow that makes men old.

I'm too stupid to make it work - I don't have a clue how to do it - I'm useless with computers.

D'oh!!!!! :oops:

Hey Stephen, if you still didn't get it to work, try this one (but for this one you need Flash instead...). It should start automatically, but if it doesn't, it's the first button.

Wow, that's incredible - I love the sound of the piano - it's my favourite instrument.

It sounds a bit like Einaudi (that's a great complient by the way).

I would kill to be able play piano like that.

I feel ashamed at calling myself a musician now :cry:

Hmm. Flattered though I am, I wonder if you listened to the "right" piece. I've been shifting things around as I've been designing the new web site. If you went there today (as opposed to two days ago when I posted that link), it would have played "Fragment No. 3 for Piano", and not "Endymion". Now you can instead find "Endymion" in the list of songs under "music". Sorry for the confusion. As to my piano playing, I'm just a dabbler. A friend will be joining the project soon, however, who's a real virtuoso with the instrument. So if you liked that simple-minded piece of mine, you should check back in a week or so for much better stuff :)

Yes, I was wondering where the Endymion part was coming in - I'll have to look for the right piece now. :roll:
