Because you mean you don't hear melodies in your head? Fair enough!

So I assume you do not play the PIANO (just SYNTH's)?

Ta,

Synths and I recently picked up bass guitar. Yes, my videos suck. I know this, the whole bleeping world knows this. Get over it. I stopped making videos for others long ago. I mostly make them for fun, for myself these days. I can't read notes, and am mostly tone deaf. I can do things on the piano, just don't expect anything more than random notes and chords. Musical instruments are toys to me, I'll admit that. I don't care what people think about that, making my own brand of music makes me happy.

You mean me "get over it"? Or the world? I have not ever seen/heard any of your music and so therefore I can not even comment.

You don't have to having READING skills to play/create music. And I don't believe there is actually anyone who is TONE DEAF (unless you are unfortunate enough to suffer from a condition). If you can tell TOP C from BOTTOM C then you are definitely NOT tone deaf!

I was asking about if you played PIANO because obviously you can not create SOUNDSCAPES as such (in the way that you can on a SYNTH). Unless, of course, it was heavily PREPARED or PROCESSED.

So you mean the Amos Gaynes Edition Little Phatty Trailer? As that is the final video in your personal uploads?

That's the one. I love how it came out. Just skip ahead to 1:36...that's where the music is. :mrgreen:

Not sure why you have the window and the green spinning lights together in the same frame? But obviously that decision must have been a conscious one for whatever reason. Though my video have only very basic text (song/composer) and my contact details (again, in very basic text) at the end. And so therefore nowhere near as sophisticated as your own.

Sophisticated...that's funny. It's a $25 laser projector. As for the window, there's no room to put my camera tripod except that one space that the window is in. My room mate is crocheting a curtain for that window, though, so hopefully soon it will be a non issue. :mrgreen:
