Our Una Corda piano has been sapmpled and is now available as a VSTi at Native Instruments - they did a great job, it's fascinating! You should check it out! :-)
The next PianoDay coming up - March 28, 2016 - looking out for your contributions! :-) Mine is the building of the M450, a new vertical concert grand piano, which pretty much makes every day a PianoDay for me... ;-)
November 16, 2014 - Totally busy building Una Corda pianos now, rarely getting a minute to listen here... anyway, hoping to catch up soon..!
March 8, 2014 - As I'm extremely occupied by designing a new piano since the beginning of this year, I haven't got the time anymore to listen and comment on the fantastic works you are presenting here on SC, my dear friends... I feel sorry for missing out so much of what happens on SC, hope to be able to take things more relaxed from July...
November 3, 2013 - The brilliant composer Stephan Beneking (http://soundcloud.com/stephan-beneking) showed the kindness to compose some works for the sound of a special piano that I made, the Klavins Model 370, and kind of "forced" me to reveal my real name - David Klavins... ;-) Anyway, Dave is Dave, so never mind... ;-) The reason I started out on SC with an artist name was because I didn't want my listeners to give credit to my music for any other reasons than just for the music itself... hope it stays this way..!! :-)
Please check out the first 3 of Stephans' 'miniatures for giants', I definitely love it:
Cheers !! :-)
February 1, 2013 - Hey, all my friends & fans: you can now obtain my music in hifi quality on my brandnew bandcamp page:
Have uploaded an album of piano solo pieces right now, will put on more over time. :-)
Love to express myself on the piano, only improvising... sometimes it works out, sometimes not... like real life... :-) Actually I'm a piano builder, and concert tuner - so, all you nice folks out there who need a decent tuning, just let me know... :)
Btw, I'm recording on a Kawai ATX - Anytime Piano, which is an acoustic / digital piano combination. After Native Instruments released "The Giant" in May 2012, I'm recording all my stuff using this vsti only, it's my favorite piano sound... :-)
Wish I had more time to explore all the fine musicians here - it's fascinating, always something new and inspirational to find, within the infinite world of music...!
After having been here for while now, I think SoundCloud is the greatest idea since the invention of the Internet!!
Please be patient with me in case I'm not replying on your comments or suggestions fast - I've been exremely busy on the job front lately..............
Now it's December 28, 2013 - having been on SC since April 2012, I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who contributes to this wonderful world of music - all the friends I've made here, and the SC-Team as well..!!
And, please, SC-Team: save SC-Classic for all of us who share their works, it's vital to us, and to your wonderful idea of SC as well..!! Thank you!!
A HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL New Year 2014, everyone..!!!
