#1  Postby Ergo Proxy » Jun 26, 2010 5:45 am

I couldn't find a thread like it, so I'm going to post the official "What are you listening to" thread right now! If there is a thread like it and I missed it somehow, please let me know. Anyways, all you do is post a youtube video of the song you are currently listening to. Here is the song I'm currently listening to:

That song Andy Dufresne plays in the prison courtyard in the Shawshank Redemption. A woman near me is playing it. Quite nice actually.

Ex-KMFDM member Raymond Watts aka PIG, I hope he shows his ugly mug too this Sunday. Chances are he will, since he lives in London.

I love this song.

I've never heard of Pig, thanks for posting. I'm just starting to get into KMFDM.

No problem at all :grin:

You might like this too then, Schwein, a collaboration of Watts, KMFDM's Sascha and Buck Tick's Atsushi Sakurai and Imai Hisashi.

She's very competent, but the playing is choppy and there are far too many ackward gaps. It's not a lack of skill, she demonstrates she has the ability to play an extremly difficult piece with ease, but her interpretation of Alkan's intent with this piece is lost. She's improvising ( not the notes, she's playing it as written) but she's taking liberties with the tempo and the accents of many of the notes.

While it's interesting to hear another version, I wouldn't buy it. in addition, and this is not a fault per se, the facial features she makes are distracting. I say not a fault because Glenn Gould used to sing while he played. I don't know of any recording that Glenn did of Alkan though.

One tiny point (there are others, but I'll make this point). At the end of variation XVI, you can't hear the last E note. (At 4:39 minutes). The sheet music calls for PP and Ped with the first 3 (of 4) E notes and the last one as P, yet she either didn't play it (I couldn't hear it anyway) or she's played it so softly as to render it non-existent.

I can read music by the way and have all 12 pieces of Opus 39. That's why I know when a note either isn't being played or it's being played incorrectly.

This is faily true to the original. His playing is smooth, competent and the tempo is right on the mark.

This is the best of the lot. :thumbup: Jack is truly the successor to Lewenthal. I doubt anyone can top Lewenthal, he was the master of Alkan interpretation.


For anyone that finds this piece interesting, here's a wee bit about it.

It's actually a variation on a theme. The theme is set-out in the 1st eight bars which is then followed by 25 variations on that theme. It's such an incredible piece that upon first hearing it, you'd be hard pressed to even know it's actually a variation on a theme.

I think I know to what you are referring. However, I have no musical training. I enjoyed it though.

I listen to Iggy on a daily basis. He is my inspiration to pick up the guitar and try. I try very hard. With this song, I have mastered the first refrain where there is no left hand required! There are plenty of youtube how tos for this track, but Iggy is my inspiration.
