Meet the Artist – Yeol Eum Son, pianist — The Cross-Eyed Pianist

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on April 11, 2018

Who or what inspired you to take up the piano,

and pursue a career in music?

My mom, at the very beginning.

She was a big classical music lover and an amateur singer.

She told me that before she had me,

she was wishing for her first child to be

more musically-talented than herself.

Pachelbel, Canon in D (1 of 3), performed by Voices of Music

Posted in Uncategorized by Higher Density Blog on April 5, 2018

 

Published on Oct 28, 2009

Pachelbel’s celebrated “Canon in D,” performed by Voices of Music, accompanied by scrolling graphical and symbolic scores. FAQ Q: I appreciate the animated graphical scores you make; how can I support your work? A: Thank you! The easiest way to support my work is by contributing via Patreon: http://www.patreon.com/musanim If you’d like to help in more specific way, consider this: http://www.musanim.com/underwriting Q: Where can I get the sheet music for this piece? A: The score that’s shown in the video can be downloaded here … http://www.musanim.com/pdf/PachelbelC… … and parts that you can perform from are here: http://www.musanim.com/pdf/PachelbelC… … and here’s an arrangement for flute quartet (ZIP file with score and parts) http://www.musanim.com/pdf/CanonArrFl… Q: Who is playing this music? A: The group is called Voices of Music; the performers in this piece are Katherine Kyme, Carla Moore and Cynthia Miller Freivogel, baroque violin, Tanya Tomkins, baroque violoncello, Hanneke van Proosdij, baroque organ, and David Tayler, theorbo Q: It says “in D” but it sounds like it’s in C-sharp to me. A: That’s true; this performance is at what referred to as “old pitch,” a pitch level that was more common when the piece was written. Q: These performers are wonderful; where I can hear more? A: Voices of Music record on the Magnatune label: http://magnatune.com/artists/voicesof… Q: Where can I get the mp3 of this? A: This recording will be available at Magnatune pretty soon. Q: Why does the title say “1 of 3”? A: I’m planning to do three versions of this piece. The second version shows Voices of Music performing; it’s here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4gjQJu… (and a second version of it with thinner note bars is here): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cweUyE… The third version will show more about how the canon works. Q: The bar-graph score and the conventional notation don’t match; why is that? A: The notation is similar to what the performers looked at when they were playing, but the bar-graph score is a little closer to what they actually did. To make the bar-graph score, I started with the original score, then listened to the performance and made various adjustments. Mostly, I added the trills and made notes shorter; I also transcribed some of the notes of the organ and theorbo (which were improvised during the performance and not written down anywhere). Then, I adjusted the timing of this modified score so that the beats matched the beats in the recording; this worked pretty well except at the very end, where the tempo changed a lot within a single beat. Q: What is a “canon”? A: As usual, Wikipedia has some good articles about this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canon_%2… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pachelbe… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johann_P… Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself? A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here: http://www.musanim.com/player/ There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first: http://www.classicalarchives.com/ If you want to upload your videos to YouTube, you might want to read this: http://www.musanim.com/youtube/HowToM… Q: Could you please do a MAM video of _________? A: Please read this: http://www.musanim.com/requests/ Q: Why do the scores move at different speeds? A: The bar-graph score is graphical, and in it, time translates exactly into horizontal position; conventional notation is symbolic, typically with one symbol per note, regardless of whether it’s a long or a short note, and the symbols are more or less evenly spaced (for legibility); so, when the notes are faster, the notation needs to move faster to keep up.
