#introduction Hi hello! Trying this Mastodon thing for real this time. Name's Guillem, main field of study is #classical #piano performance. In my spare time I make very much not classical #music, program a few #games, complain about #accessibility, exercise my #language and #linguistics nerdyness, and nerdyness in general, and talk to strangers on the Internet. I also have periods of obsessive #reading and/or consuming video content. Actually i think my entire life is periods of obsessive something.
Aaaanyway, that's me! :)
@luka Thank you!!! it was really fun to make. I don't have a Bandcamp just yet. Is there any particular reason why you asked / why I should consider making one, or something like it?
@guilevi I (any one who likes your music) can directly support you by leaving a buck or two aka buying your tracks. it's a 'fair trade music' platform.
My favourite pianist is probably Vladimir Ashkenazy, especially Rachmaninov's Concerto #2 In C Minor , in the 2nd movement Adagio Sostenuto.
Although I do like Glenn Gould and don't mind his occasional humming. While I work, I listen to a lot of Bach and Handel, it seems to help me concentrate and not get in the way.
@dch Thank you!! :) I quite like Ashkenazy's playing as well, especially his Rachmaninoff of course. It's quite something.
Gould is of course a little weirder, but he definitely has his own little charm.
Those sound like really good background music choices, though I'd probably get lost in Bach's counterpoint before I got anything done. :D
@guilevi my brain seems to have 2 tracks. If I keep one occupied with the music the other one can get some work done. Weird.
@dch I actually have pretty much the same issue, though it tends to happen more with people talking or any other kind of background noise. I definitely work better when there's stuff going on in the background than in complete silence.
A fun, happy little Mastodon/Hometown instance. Join us by the fire and have awesome discussions about things, stuff and everything in between! Admins: @Talon and @Mayana.
