Practice Session 5

This is a piano piece I’ve been just starting to work with. It still has a lot of work to do on it, and I haven’t mastered the rhythm yet, so keep that in mind when you hear my mistakes. I’ve been trying to match the interestingness of Gazelem. I’d love to have everyone’s input. What does it need? What could be changed?

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.
