I’m a big fan of digital formats. I use them, I like them and I encourage people to do the same. I remember the old days when I had to choose 10 CDs of my collection before taking any plane. Now, I take my whole collection with me: who can plan what he’ll want to hear in 3 days? With this post, I’m starting a series of five posts about audio digital formats and why you should definitely make the switch.
Since my youth, I have a passion for studio equipment, recording and editing techniques. knew a lot about the brands, their different products, the software (yes, I’m young enough not to have lived the glorious era of tape recorders) and if I don’t really up to date with that now, I’ve been much more interested in exploring the possibilities offered by the tools and how this can serve the music I play and the recording I want to produce.
It’s funny to see how ideas can sometimes evolve quickly and how priorities can be reassessed. About 10 days ago, my next album project was unveiled: I’ll record in March three Beethoven sonatas (Eb Major, C# minor Moonlight and D Major Pastoral) as the first volume of a project called Beethoven – Evolutions. Initially, Beethoven should not have been part of the plan. So what did happen?
After Introducing Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont released in July 2012, Pierre-Arnaud presents his next album dedicated to three sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven as the first volume of his project Beethoven – Evolutions.
How do you practice? How much time do you spend at the piano daily? These are questions I’m used to. But I never really answered to that. So, I took a few weeks to analyze my own practice sessions. Thanks to this introspection, I was able to highlight the main points governing my daily work. Want to know what are the 5 most valuable practicing tips according to me?
Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont will record two of Steven Berryman’s solo piano pieces in addition to recording his second album, in March 2013. These pieces will feature on his recital tour throughout 2013, and Steven and Pierre-Arnaud plan to collaborate on further new works in 2014.
Since its release on July, 15th 2012, Introducing Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont has been well received by critics and garnered positive reviews. Here are the links of the latest reviews if you missed them.
Three months ago, I published a post untitled Far Beyond Entertainment. I guess I opened the Pandora box with this post. It’s really different to write down a story and publish from having an idea buried deeply inside your mind : you don’t have to structure, defend nor apply it. When it’s out, you have to help people understand what you meant, stand up for your idea and think what it changes in your life.
Introducing Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont, the pianist’s first solo album, has finally been released with innovative ideas to reach new audiences. Introducing Pierre-Arnaud Dablemont is now available for free in flac and mp3. Get a download link and watch the teaser videos at http://introducing.pierre-arnaud-dablemont.com.
