Oh.. my goodness.. I really need to see this movie. WATCH THIS CLIP NOW, PLEASE!!
Has anybody seen this film? I'm thinking about buying it for my b-day, but I can't find anybody who has seen it! Apparently, Robin Williams plays a mime in it. Dang, I reaaaally want to see it!! *snorts*
For your watching/listening pleasure. It's SLIGHTLY off, but you can tell where the music is supposed to go. I think the performers did an excellent job, and I learned a lot from just this one-minute clip.
Ahhh, yesterday was a lovely day indeed... musically.
For piano masterclass (at 10:30am), we took a trip to The Centre In The Square, which is where the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra performs. They had a brand new Steinway piano (signed by the last-living Steinway relative) and I was able to play it! Wow, playing that shiny piano in such a LARGE area... it was wonderful. The stage is huge; while I was walking to the piano at the center, I was just looking up, down and behind me at all that space. What a wonderful feeling. And such a wonderfully in-tune piano! Just lovely... it made my mistakes sound sweet, haha. I'm glad I had that opportunity.
And then, later in the evening, I finally got my composition performed at the New Music Concert. Now that was an experience.. having my piece played on stage in front of an audience. I was very impressed. It was difficult to get everybody together for rehearsals (there was seven performers in total, including a conductor) with two weeks to prepare, but they nailed it and I'm so happy. I can't wait to get a recording of it.. I'll post it up here when I do. :D chibimya, Mic and Michael were able to come check it out, which was cool because I wanted it to be heard by non-musicians as well.. it's not fun if I get feedback from my fellow music students, although I do appreciate it.
Yes, it was a musically wonderful day. Want to hear a sample of a piano piece I'm working on? Click HERE to download! It's eeeeevil. :D
