  1. oh yeah, what a tard. shows how long i havent listened to squarepusher for. point still stands though with go plastic, even if i listened to it a few weeks after Ultravistor
  2. still the best IDM album of all time for me. seared my tiny 14 year old mind into oblivion when i first heard steinbolt. i used to play it on a wee portable speaker in high school cos i thought it made me sound cool as fuck.
  3. rubin farr still posting absolute belters after my year away i see.
  4. some cheesy belters in there, this is a demo for my first wedding im playing whenever weddings are allowed to continue Poulenc - Melancholie Burton Lane - On A Clear Day Debussy Arabesque 1 Over The rainbow Love Letters George Shearing - Wendy Chopin - Nocturne No.9 in B Major Debussy - Reverie Ludovico Einaudi - Le Onde
  5. I actually dont compose for piano atall man. The mere concept in the face of the giants of composition of whom it takes me months to even learn a single piece by is offputting and frankly i dont think i have the skill to add anything to the reptoire that already exists. i prefer finding the most interesting and lesser known pieces that i can play with conviction and learning them. Im trying to learn jazz improv but its literally like learning a new instrument because i can sight read fluently. completely different way of operating your brain. appreciate your interest though.

    This is TV worthy.
  7. Bit late to the party, but hollow Knight. Astonishingly good. I've started making bootleg house versions of my favourite area themes im so impressed
  8. im still slowly working on the album. currently focussing on content for a website post lockdown to get students, maybe some background lounge work and stop having to chef for a living. I also need to get better at making my digital piano sound rich and expansive in ableton.
  9. I find roguelites have grown to be my favourite genre of game. ruthlessly challenging, yet the upgrades you chip away at while failing, mixed with rising skill levels, leave you deeply satisfied when you finally break through a checkpoint, or finish them. also you can play for 45 minutes and get a full session in.
  10. Hades is my new Roguelite and it is fantastic. Much more forgiving than Enter the Gungeon, but still pretty challenging, and with an incredibly deep set of upgrades and conditions for replayability.
  11. Recent addictions, Granados - Goyescas. Intensely textural Spanish suite, astonishing displays of pianism at times. Vitoslav Novek - Pan (has both orchestral and piano solo version). Fairly under the radar Czech music, highly tonal with interesting unplanned modulations and rich orchestration. the solo piano version is great too. Nikolai Kasputin - 8 Concert Etudes, Sonata Fantasy No.1. Jazz classical on crack. The Sonata literally sounds unplayable at times. Prokofiev - Sonata No.8 . A work of intense anguish interespersed with strange uplifting soviet motifs, this one is a tough one to wrap your head around, highly rewarding when you do though. The first movement is 16 minutes long, but i mostly recommend the third for some crazy soviet bipolaristic harmony interplay. Leopold Godowsky - Piano Sonata. Gorgeous post romantisicm from the almost undisputed master of contrapuntality. Its a slog at 45 minutes, but the first movement alone is worth giving 5-6 listens to see if you can roll with it. Leo Ornstein - Cello Sonatas. Awesome, virtuoso pieces from a composer who managed to live through two century turns. his works alternate between full atonality, note cluster showmanship pieces, and stylistic late romantic, flowing stuff, of which the cello sonatas fall into the latter. Messiaen - Preludes. Written when he was a teenager, and beautiful as fuck. check em out.
