About the hiss: I don't think I changed anything. Are you sure it is not just the volume turned too high? The whole piece is supposed to be quite soft.
I did indeed notice it (on my headphones) mainly because the volume was turned way up. But turned it down to normal and could still hear the hiss (quite unusual for me). This was not so in your previous recordings. I think you had the input gain high up when recording this, just compare the beginning with the beginning of the Hough, at the same high volume and you'll see (hear) my point. The Hough recording has quite high hiss, too. Not sure how you do it. Cheap mp3 recorder ?
To appreciate it one has to listen in a completely different way. I guess the same holds for some variants of techno music (which I also have trouble with).
Interesting comparison. I guess both aim to put the listeners in a trance rather than engage and stimulate them.
Hitting the notes here is of course not difficult. Figuring out a meaningful approach required some effort to think outside my quite narrow box.
The Narrow Parrow box, hehe. Actually it is bigger than you give it credit for.
Will you record more Part ? If not, I think this shall go in the Various section. He's not much of a piano composer anyway.
Oh BTW, please do not use umlauts etc in file names and ID tags. They give me a headache. I must mention that in the guidelines.
