Should I stay or should I go?

I should just share this song and go... But no, miss mipiano, as some would call me, showed herself as a brave piano player and accepted the challenge not challenge, again.
On top of that, @edje asked me "Will you run, or not?" He allowed me to run away, and just not spread the vibes. He also warned me to be prepared and to get my dancing shoes ready for some underground electronic music.. but how could I not spread those vibes coming out right now from my headphones, those lanoche vibes.


My response to edje's invitation

You knew that my knowledge about electronic music is thin. It is well known for everyone, as my main occupation is acoustic music. Always have been. I listened to all kind of rock, alternative rock, metal, hard rock music in my younger days, the whole literature of classical music passed through my ears to the grey cells and soul, and I stick to my acoustic piano as profession. Somehow, electronic music was just a passer-by. I do enjoy it, but for example I don't know the current leader musicians from that genre. It is a shame, however this is a great opportunity to learn a bit from those who are expert in this field. For example you, @edje.

So what did you bring here? I have to admit that my favourite is Sounds of Sonar by Lanoche. I am grateful that you put it as the first, as slow techno to warm up. And I will stay with this one, for three reasons.

-Firstly, she is a girl, although probably there are many female DJs and musicians from electronic music. I saw some posts by @uwelang and that was cool, we are waiting for more :) But in the past, being a female composer or musician was difficult. They were not supposed to be composers, unfortunately.

-Secondly, you say Spain. I don't need more!

-The third reason, this is really so ambiental, I could have it on during the whole day and not be annoyed by excess sound. Is it soul-friendly (did I invent now a new word?) I am listening to this track right now, for the second time while writing this post. It takes me more time than the whole track of 1 hour and 8 minutes. I am wondering if I will need the thirds playing as well. Btw, the track is in F sharp minor, I can not miss the key a song is written... One of the bass motifs is F# F# C# A...Too many pitch determination drills during my studies.

So, I had an idea to go to the town next to mine, Benidorm, as during normal summers, there are all-night parties. I wanted to dance in one of the long sandy beaches, and prove it with some photo or short video. But, the weather was no so nice. And I had some health issues from yesterday, so I just went to our beach which is mixed, pebbles and sand. The sea was a bit angry, waves covered the sandy part, and a lot of seagulls occupied the dance floor.

I came to terms with the fact that I wouldn’t be dancing in the sand and that my footprints wouldn’t stay because the waves were coming and going too fast. Finally, I decided to make a foot out of pebbles, which would represent my desire to dance. It's this foot I made of pebbles:

Dance, dance ... What would be my musical entry?

A dance, of course. From the Baroque era. Composer? Johann Sebastian Bach. Badinerie, is a dance type from baroque, and it was included as one of the movements in orchestral suites. In original, this badinerie composed by Johann is written for orchestra and flute. To be more close to the era, I decided to play it with the sound of harpsichord, that is integrated in my Yamaha Clavinova piano. I recorded it this morning, using my new toy, audio interface. In this same video I play two times, the first as sound of harpsicord as I already said and the second time is with the sound of piano. I made it in two versions as you can compare the sound and see how playing on the piano I can control the dynamics, and with harpsicord that is not possible. So, here comes Badinerie, composed by Johann Sebastian Bach.

WOW, that's a great followup post you've created! Love it :) Lanoche, I was hoping you would appreciate her, and could only hope you liked what she is doing. The other two selections I can very much imagine it's not your cup of tea. Or at least, not now hahahaha Both set recordings are dark stuff and one needs to appreciate the 'rave' idea before one can appreciate that style of music. Not sure if you tried to listen to it. When so, let me know your initial thoughts.

Harpsichord: That's how it is called. I remember from one of the Mozart movies, he played such an instrument. That was the memory I got immediately when I listen to your contribution to the post above. I kinda like the sound of this instrument, but I like the sounds of a piano more. A piano sounds more dynamics to me and gives a more full and richer sound. Also, the harpsichord gives a more happy sound over a piano. Quite interesting when listening to the whole recording and hearing the same piece played with the two instruments. The instruments giving a different feeling, while playing the same piece of music. That shows, how many factors are at play in music :)

I'll need to start hunting down those I invited in my last post to get some followup :) Nick mentioned he would work on something. I'll be waiting till at least this weekend, and see if some more responses enter our community :)

EDIT: Forgot to say something about dancing and foot! WOW. Love what you did there. The dancing part, that can wait till better weather times. The creativity in making the pebble foot: LOVE IT!

Thank you ☺️

Isn't it the essence of these posts? To do something different, not everyday thing, not just share music, right?

Or I am mistaken? 😂

Nope, not at all. Great to see you taking extra extra extra effort to adhere to the idea :)

It brings happiness 😇

!ENGAGE 20

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

I love the sound of the harpsichord! And though I have to admit, I was almost expecting some tunes by The Clash on that fantastic instrument, this Bach piece was just perfect. Though reading your lines makes me hope that one day maybe I might find some crazy crossover music performed by you. (And yes, I can see how you really want to do it too. ;-) Am I not right?)

Hahahaha, @stortebeker , I will have you in mind for this :D

You could challenge not challenge me one day 😜

I am glad you liked the harpsichoard sound with Bach. I was afraid it will be too annoying and the readers and listeners would run away in no time... 😅

Isn't this the commonly shared fear of all performers? And being bloggers on Hive, I'd say we're all included in this. :-)

As for the challenge-not-challenge, let me come back to it. Though in the end it just might be a regular challenge.

Yes, something like that. Although we should write/blog what we like, and with love, and fun :-)

With playing in concerts there is one more tricky thing, the fear (lámpaláz - couldn't find the perfect English word mow) of random mistakes when we play live in the scene.

If you want you can join into this post, or @edje's :) or some next round, you are very welcome! If you felt some vibes, don't wait, catch them and spread 🎵💞

:-)

Lámpaláz = stage fright. I know, not such a colorful expression.

As for joining the challenge (not challenge), I don't know... I think I can't... or I just may have some form of stage fright! ;-)

!BEER

Take your time you need :)

and beat the fear :P

The fear is beat! My post is here. BTW, I used one of your pics of your piano. I hope it's okay, or if not I'll remove it at once. Thanx for this challenge! :-)

WOW Gabriella: super Badinerie! (I prefer the second execution)

I practised a little bit these days Badinerie :D

Yes, the second one is also more preffered for me, but the harpsichord version comes to show how would some keyboard player from baroque play it for its own fun 😁

oh, by the way, if invitation is strongly needed, you can invite me too. I do have a good music to share. cheers!

@qwerrie , you would like to participate? 🤩
