Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

I had not touched my keyboard for a long time - couple months? So it was inspiring to play it again. I set it up in the living room of the new house and played pianoteq on my laptop using a Just Intonation tuning (below). Actually I had to improvise the piece twice since I screwed up saving from pianoteq standalone and had to fire up Sonar 8.5 to capture the performance. Then I edited the performance to what you hear. About 20% of the notes were messed with - the rest is the original improvisation.

The title comes from the Collaborative Ambient Project for which I wrote this piece and is sponsored by a Russian associate Luigi Verona. I'll bet this is the only solo piano piece he's received so it will be interesting to see if its accepted.

Very nice piano piece here!! Thanks for sharing it. Like others, best wishes for having it accepted.

As for Sonar 8.5, I just got a "loyal customer" card for special pricing on an upgrade (I have 3, 5, and 6--all Producer). I am wondering if you upgraded to 8.5 from an earlier version, and if so, what do you think of 8.5?

Thank you for the listen and comment.

8.5 producer is an upgrade like no other I've had. Lots of new stuff and capabilities. I love it. Well worth the money I spent on it.

Thanks. I tried downloading the trial version, but the DL link sent me to the video promo instead.

I prefer equal divisions of whatever generator interval you choose Wink

I can't say I prefer anything yet. I still like 12 sometimes since its so familiar and I especially like stacking 5ths and 4ths in 12.

I do have some goals

1. make a JI piece that "growls"
2. do a harmonic series piece like Michael Harrison (and others)
3. learn some "real" progressions in several tunings (thus my alpha experiment).


as with all things these goals will change no doubt.
