Probably the best thing I've written for piano.

4, 3, 2, 1....blast off! My newest piano piece Rockets is probably the most enjoyable to play out of all my pieces for piano. With a lot of cool jumps in the right hand with virtuosic left hand turns, it all sits under the hands nicely. A lot of textural changes that keep the piece constantly moving and exploring new things allows for an awesome experience with the bell-like count-down reoccurring time and time again.

My congratulations on an interesting piece, very well performed. I was particularly impressed with the left hand work - I really need to improve mine.

In the spirit of one fellow pianist to another, I think you'll see what I mean about the left hand with my latest (public) original piano work: https://soundcloud.com/eddy-deegan/recollection

The left hand in the piece I linked could certainly use some work. Unfortunately these days with other commitments and goals it's going to take a little time, but at least it's not something I don't know how to work on!

Bravo on your piece :clap:

PS: I initially missed your post as the SOS forums focus primarily on recording techniques, equipment. mixing and engineering as opposed to performance appraisals. Usually people post their material for feedback to a forum to which you don't get access until you have 200 posts in the main forums, hence my late reply.

Some of my musical works.
I had a weird time in Surrey once, but that was a drummer's fault.

Really like this, it's rare that something is so technically brilliant but also has great emotion, you've succeeded on both counts.

Hi BoscoOsco,

Wow - I've only just listened to this, and it's jaw-droppingly good! :clap:

Do I detect elements of Bartok in there?
