I compose for piano all the time, but sadly cannot play one myself.

It'd make my life so much eaiser, but using vsts/hiring pianists is just easier, I have a lot of stuff I want to learn.

i play keyboard a lot

i haven't done sight reading since highschool/middleschool so i'm pretty weak at it, so I just improvise more of the time and count on muscle memory
who knew playing guitar could translate so easily to piano...

Piano synthesia is the greatest thing ever for piano.

Fuck theory snobs, their music is always garbage

Actually. Piano maestro might be better, I've been thinking about getting it.

Pasta is okay with my music

Piano Synthesia has its uses (as basically color piano tab), but regular notation is a lot more precise. Agreed about Piano Maestro, though.

Sheet music comes naturally to me (within a few ledger lines), though.

And being told you are playing like a deranged dickhead is a far more effective way of learning piano.
Also learning scales properly is actually very useful on piano

I can read music, I'm just not some snob that claims it's the only real way and that you aren't a musician if you can't do it.
Those people always make trash music.

Never forget music came before notation.

Yeh. It's pretty important if you want to play something exactly as it's written. Ya know, something that any tape recorder can do way better than you, regardless of your proper finger placement.

I was trying to thing of some really old recording technology. Tape recorder was the best I could come up with.
#18
Yes but Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville's phonautograph, Edison's phonograph, the record press, the reel to reel or any form of recording tech could actually play a piano. What are you talking about?

True, but the music that survived the first millennium was notated. Oral traditions die with the culture.

And music was notated but open to virtuosic improvisation (see Mozart, Liszt, Paganini, and many others), not to mention the freedom within figured bass.

Classical music is not as mechanical rhythmically, check this out:

(My point is)That you are fighting a losing battle if you think the only way to be a musician is to play things exactly as they were written or originally performed.

Any recording technology can do that way better than you can.
Modern synths can also do that way better than you can.

That's fine if you take personal pride in playing things a certain way, nothing at all wrong with that. Or if your dream is to join an orchestra or something where every single note is micromanaged for you.

But SOME people go overboard with their way being the only way, these people never create anything good.

yea if you don't know proper technique for stuff like finger placement you're just gonna have an awful time on the piano

You're likely just making something much more difficult than it needs to be

And people who think this are idiots, as are people who think that playing something different to how it was written is some sort of amazing development and the future of music.
E.g. a note by note performance of Polonaise in A flat Major Op.53 vs a piano roll version played by Ferrucio Busoni





Any recording technology can do that way better than you can.
Modern synths can also do that way better than you can.

How? A piece of recording tech cannot activate an instrument other than sympathetic vibration from playback, and that's closer to musique concrète

That's fine if you take personal pride in playing things a certain way, nothing at all wrong with that. Or if your dream is to join an orchestra or something where every single note is micromanaged for you.

Only if you want it to be, they aren't all the same, conductors will make edits to the score reflecting their personal preference and style.

But SOME people go overboard with their way being the only way, these people never create anything good.

You don't seem at all like one of those

Please explain to me how playing moonlight sonata without any variation from centuries old notation is any sort of amazing development.

Again, I'm the one saying play music however you want.
Learning theory, and taking lessons certainly helps a lot of people, including myself but I'm not so smug that I think my way is the only way to be a proper musician or play things properly.

He wasn't implying that? Either way, the third movement requires technical skill. Dynamics are also a major part of classical music.

Classical music is made to elevate the composer for his ideas, as well as the performer for giving the ideas some aural form of his designing.

The only things that actually care to play music exactly as written are machines, and they're boring as f.

heyyy, someone else who likes Bill Evans. Nice.

Easily my fav jazz pianist / artist in general.

I don't know what he was implying, I made my own statement that people who claim knowing theory is the only way to be a musician never make anything good.
To which he seemed to have some sort of issue with.

I know plenty of people who are very good at instruments without ever taking lessons or studying theory......people that claim these people aren't good also are in the category of never making anything good.

In the end I just said it because I knew some snotty person who has never made anything worthwhile would have an issue with piano synthesia and piano maestro aids.

Because I don't agree with you fully.

Piano Synthesia and Piano Maestro have their merits, but they don't allow for development of personal musicianship and style. They give a style to copy, but the player has no inner voice.

On the other hand, you hear the pianists' voices clearly through Pasta's two videos of the same song.

Reading sheet music doesnt do any better at giving the player a distinct or inner voice IMO.
But you are certainly entitled to your opinion.
I've done both extensively and used current synths so I'm entitled to an opinion as well.

True in a sense; however, descriptive notation (sheet music) allows the user far more freedom than copying a piano roll or adhering strictly to a metronome*.

I think your frame of reference is far different than both Pasta and mine.

*outside of ensemble context in classical music, this is fine to some extent. See above video I linked.
#40
How many times are you going to vacillate on what position I'm on?

I never said that; however, dependence on technology for music without learning to use the aural faculties as well is not useful.
