Right then...
I'm not running for president of the H3nry Fan Club but you are frikkin' amazing! I listened to the long version a couple of days ago, as well as browsed a bit on your website, and I suspect that your attention to detail, your dedication to programming every nuance, and your sensitivity (to the music) must come from years of tinkering with HeathKits and such.

I don't know the music of Petrouchka and I also suspect I won't listen to it again but you obviously love it. I have incredible respect for your having accomplished this. Bravo!

Skilled midi work Sir. The re-imagination of the thing alone is outstanding, all the nuance and care taken on top of that is breath taking.
Kudos on the keyboard work here.

My fav ballet music
And you've done a magical job reimagining it with new instruments and, ahem, a completely new fibe. Such a pleasure to hear 'this fanciful score through an electronic lens that, while organically so much different from the acoustic original orchestration, nevertheless retains Stravinsky's exuberance and inventiveness. Bravo!

Not the ballet you were expecting.
While the notes are more or less in Stravinsky's original order, I think of this as a new piece - a fantasy intended for listening only, and the only thing that matters is pleasing the ear. My ear, more precisely, and hopefully other ears as well. There is certainly a lot here that isn't usual or even possible to perform except with a computer. So it goes. As time passes and I keep tinkering, it drifts farther and farther from its origins, but it retains Stravinsky's intent of a pianist firing volleys of notes at the world.
