Looking Back by Diego Errazuriz published on 2012-10-16T00:22:12Z Groups for track Ambient Piano - <a href="http://soundcloud.com/theambientpiano" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">The Ambient Piano SAMPLER</a> - <a href="https://soundcloud.com/theambientpiano/likes" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Moderators' Likes</a> Ambient Moods Piano Improvisation This group is for pianists demonstrating live creativity in all styles from baroque through classical, romantic, jazz, new age, modern rock and pop and everything in between. The only criteria for contributing to this group is for the recording to have been unprepared improv. Recordings that have had instrumental backing tracks added afterwards also qualify, as long as the core work is improvisational. (Reason for using album pic for group: Keith Jarrett is one of the first and the few pianists in history to have achieved global fame and success from performing live improvisational piano music and has inspired a generation of pianists to study and emulate his style.) New Age Music If you are looking for a place to relax. Here it is. piano minimalism Piano pieces only please! We might approve a work if it only has one extra instrument accompanying it. We will really have to favorite it though. These are the rules, it doesn't mean that we don't like your work. So please don't be offended...Thank you for your contributions! **Please note: as of 20/05/12. Only submit one work at a time, additional tracks will be deleted to keep the group varied with different musicians. Thank you for your understanding. Melancholic Piano This group is dedicated to melancholic piano recordings. The group is moderated at least once a day and it's oriented versus solo pianists or tracks that has has predominant (... and melancholic!) piano melodies. So a few reasons for why your track might not get included: - if the track contains other predominant instruments - if there is a vocal - if it is an electronic/dance based track - if it is too happy Some additional guidelines: - please tag your song properly: I will listen only to songs tagged as classical, piano, piano solo, modern classical or similar. - if you cheat and tag as piano solo a heavy metal track (even if I love heavy metal) I will block you from the group - i will not approve wihtout listening all the tracks not properly tagged (ie rock, alternative, pop, IDM, hip hop, etc) Please submit only one track at once, otherwise only the first you submitted will be accepted - this to prevent 10 or 20 tracks in a row from the same musician.

This group is dedicated to all your piano recordings, from the relaxing to the rigorous, the classical to the jazz, the atmospheric to the tense. The group is moderated at least once a week, so please be patient if your track doesn't show up straight away. This group was intended to be for solo pianists or tracks that are 99% led by the instrument. So a few guidelines for why your track might not get included: - if the track contains other predominant instruments - if there is a vocal - if it is an electronic/dance based track These are just general guidelines. However if you submit too many tracks that don't fit the group then you may be blocked from submitting. It doesn't mean we don't like your music though, it just makes the moderation more efficient and retains the group identity.
