Gazelem (Simplified)

Gazelem is a piece that usually requires 3 pianos. Unfortunately I don’t have 3 pianos. So I did a recording with my keyboard of the main 2 parts.

The piece uses polyrhythm – 3/4 time and 4/4 time to get the effect I wanted. There is more going on than what can be seen just by watching, but I thought I’d do a simple video of a simplified version of Gazelem.

Obviously, this is a cheap recording, you can even hear the keys pounding, and I hit a couple wrong keys throughout the piece, but I think you’ll get the gist of it.
