To improve my piano playing, I record myself improvising on the fly – mostly video game music. I’m a classically trained pianist since the age of 5 (who enjoyed a kind of D-list internet celebrity in the 2000’s) trying to get back into the music scene, flourish as a musician, and craft an album all at the same time.
I record and listen to myself often to improve my technique, but I also want to embrace a “warts-and-all” approach to presenting creativity. So, in utter embarrassment, I present all my fumbles, fat fingers, creative cul-de-sacs, and generally bad playing in the service of showing you the excellence begins with an astounding amount of oopsies. Check back often, as I will frequently replace this practice session with others.
