Watch me play “D”

Saturday, January 9th, 2016

This piece isn’t new. I completed in 2009, but the recording I made at the time was poor. I’ve been meaning to re-record it for years now, and I finally did it!

This time, I added an extra challenge of recording it on video simultaneously. This meant that I had to play it perfectly in one take. I had my doubts at times (I mess up a lot), but I knew it would happen sooner or later if I kept doing it over and over again.

It reminded me of my piano lessons as a child, when my piano teacher would make me stop and go back to the beginning every time I played a wrong note.

It’s not perfect, but all the notes are right. And, overall, I am happy with the phrasing and dynamics in that take. It will never be perfect, but this is the closest. It was take number 78.

Matchingfreak Reaches 1000 Outfits

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

To commemorate the momentous occasion of reaching 1000 documented outfits on Matchingfreak, I decided to make a short “documentary,” if you will. It cracks me up.

I made it over the course of the week and used iMovie, which is pretty good for a free software. Making it was a lot of fun, and reminded me of the times when I pretended to make television shows as a child!
