Default Mark Walsen - Two Piano Apple Pie

Hello Music Friends,

There's a recording of another piece I wrote, this one around 1985 for two pianos, named Apple Pie. You can hear it here:

Here's the description I wrote for it at Soundclick:

Thick, heavy beat sound of two pianos in a high spirited, somewhat urban American folk style. It's not quite as down-home American as the Apple Pie name suggests.

This is the first piece I wrote (n 1985) with the aid of a computer as an accompanist, ever willing to play one of the parts while I was sketching the other part.

This recording is of me playing both parts live. No, I don't have four hands. I did a MIDI, not audio, recording of the first piano part on my 6'11'' Yamaha grand Disklavier, which plays back the MIDI recording as a live acoustic performance. (You've seen these pianos playing themselves in malls or hotel lobbies.) Then, while the Disklavier was playing back the first part, I played the second part on my only slightly mismatched second 7'4'' Yamaha grand.

It's really fun to play two pianos with oneself this way, but not nearly as much fun as playing with live pianist with whom you can musically talk back and forth better during the performance.

-- Mark
