Can you play some? Or which one would you like to play? Bonus question: Can be music used for torture? Twisted Evil

LOL... I used to play guitar and flute. Haven't done either for the last 15 years, though.
As a kid I wanted to learn how to play the piano, but we didn't have one, so... no joy.
Nowadays I'd rather like to learn how to play drums. Any kind at all, as long as it's noisy. Twisted Evil
...and... having to listen to aspiring violinists... THAT'S torture!!! Very Happy

I'm a studying musician (composer).
I play piano, organ... and really just some little clarinet (I'm obliged to learn an orchestral instrument at university)
Also I'm singing (Bass-Baritone) in several vocal ensembles. Just depends how much they pay... Wink

We had a similar thread in the community forum. (Sorry Alchemist!)Razz

This is what I wrote back then as a total noob @ SST in this particular thread:

It's rather astounding how many people play the clarinet. (I also now had to start that instrument obliged by the music university to learn an orchestral instrument, and I'm proud to say I'm not so bad for a beginner, my teacher plays in the Vienna States Opera Orchestra = Vienna Philharmonics).
So many woodwinds, brass and pianos. But little strings, how come??

Actually my whole life is music!
I am now studying composing at the university for music and arts in Vienna/Austria, but started to compose at the age of 15. Since then I always knew I wanted to become a composer/conductor.
I went 9 years to the music high school in Vienna and after graduation I spend my 8-month military service at the military music departement mostly as pianist and arranger.

I started the piano when I was a little kid, but really started to practice at 14/15. I was quite good though back then.
I also have the so-called "musical ear" like Arya, so I know what it is like to hear every false pitch.
And since I've also been singing in several choirs since my childhood, I can tell you, this can hurt sometimes... Smile

I started to play organ at the age of 16, I spend 3 years on the conservatory learning organ, but now I sadly rarely practice now since I'm at the university. (I still get lessons though and who knows what will turn out at the end)

I also intend to study conducting (and also doing filmscores someday???) after I got my first diploma in composing (due 2007).

When that is done I plan to add musical science to this long list.
But I'm 21 now, so there should be some time left. Laughing

I sing in several vocal ensembles (my voice is bass-baritone), like to play chamber music (I'm actually trying to revitalise a tango-ensemble I had in high school... Piazolla & Co), and I am really surprised by how many musicians are in this forum.
In fact it really makes me happy!

Jerry Goldsmith was one of my greatest role models, I wrote a big a-cappella choir piece in memoriam for him. It hasn't been performed yet because it requires a big choir and the difficulty level is quite high (duration about 11 minutes).
Hopefully I can manage to get a contribution of it soon and will be able to send a copy of the score and dedication to his family. If someone for instance has a contact that could help my I'd be grateful.

Okay, I'm stopping to show off already, don't worry. Confused...


And YES, some music CAN be used for torture sometimes.
e.g. Britney Spears, Tangerine Dream, bad soprano singers, badly tuned pianos, bad synthies...
PS: And Organ rules!!

The piano would be my favorite instrument.. probably because I've been playing it for 24 years now. Not as often as I would like, but the passion is still there. I have played various instruments throughout my years in school: clarinet, trumpet, percussion, flute. Nothing beats my love of the piano.

You were faster than me, bpe! Smile However, there is a difference. I'd not dare answering in the other thread, as I can't play a single note on any instrument. Wink

Piano is definitely my favorite instrument. I can't really say why... it can carry every emotion and be played in a thousand of different ways, but the same can be said for many instruments!

Yes. Do you want to hear me sing? Very Happy

I should answer too. I played clarinet for 8 years, started because of my athma. Now I'm totally without problems, so maybe it worked. We had kvintet and I went even to kid orchestra. Quite fun.

Now I practise on our old piano my fav tracks from Hisaishi and Uematsu.

BTW. Sorry Alch for a bit similar thread, but the search module did not find anything with "instrument". Maybe a bug?

I play piano, and my favorite instruments to hear/listen to are: the flute, the piano, the violin, and my favorite instrument is... the Electric Guitar Cool Call me crazy, but I think electric guitars are the most beautiful of instruments. (Which may explain why TSO is my all time favorite band! Wink ) Though it depends on how the guitar is used, e.g. I don't care for Metal Rock.

I play saxaphone (all of em at one point or another but i play the tenor sax the most) and i have been playing sax for 15 or 14ish years. i enjoy mostly jazz an big band stuff. but i play whatever. bari sax is my second favorite, soprano is fun too and alto is my least fav, but i still enjoy it.

I used to play piano when i was but a lad, wish i kept with it

I play guitar, not well, but i do play it.

i play a mean recorder and slide whistle.

my mom teaches piano and my uncle teaches woodwinds. we have a very musical family.

and i sing wicked good Very Happy
