Pinned toot

🎼 Hello ✨ did you know that I just released a third album not five minutes ago?
It's called Hyacinth! It's shorter and more personal one than Alma and Journey and leans more into the electronic/synth vibe^^
The cover art was made by @Mirima (thank you!^^) and you've probably already seen it from when I released "Cold" and "Clouds" :p

As per usual, you can listen to it on
▶️ Bandcamp: alicedantor.bandcamp.com/album
Or
▶️ Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/alice_dantor/se

Hope you'll enjoy it!
Cheers °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°

🎼 And here is my first album ✨
It's called "Alma" (from Greek "άλμα" which figuratively means "significant move forward")
The album art was very kindly made by @Mirima and based on an old drawing of mine.

You can listen to it on:
▶️ Bandcamp: alicedantor.bandcamp.com/album

Cheers!

Hello!
I'm Alice, a 21yo trans lesbian from France and this is my toot ✨

I'm a guitar/bass player, a pianist, and occasional singer who listens to a lot of different types of music and, sometimes, I make my own stuff, which is what this account is for °˖✧◝(⁰▿⁰)◜✧˖°
And yeah, I think that's about it^^
Cheers ✌️

(btw, profile and banner pics were made by @Mirima ! Thx a lot bro 😎)

(I'm so sorry to all bassists out there but there is no bass guitar emoji 😢)

updated my bio so it looks a bit more ✨ lively ✨ (besides, emoji allow you to kinda get around the character limit lmao)

person 1: "where's Alice?"

person 2: "wait, I gotcha" *starts shouting* "gee, I wonder what time signature this song's in"

me, shouting from a distance: "it's clearly three 7/8 bars followed by a 6/8 bar!"

person 2: "there she is"

cello strings played pizzicato kinda sound like classical guitar to me tbh, just way less resonant 🤔 especially arpeggiated chords, like, I'm thinking the very last chords of this piece:
youtube.com/watch?v=UUgdbqt2ON

me: "lmao I can't play this, it's way too hard"
someone: "but Alice, have you even tried to practise that piece?"
me: "...no? what's your point?"

solo piano* piece?
🤔 idk actually, word order is hard

just finished an original piano solo piece ✨
I also wrote it in musescore so it looks clean (even though the sheet is still quite heavy, with all the nuances accents and whatnot)

and I figured out Mononoke Hime's theme by ear lmao
I sound like shit but hey, I have the notes

good morning! I can play the intro to the Rite of Spring on the recorder and it sounds okay

I don't know how I keep forgetting about Tchaikovsky using literal cannons in his music

the piano part on its own sounds so different like wow

how therapeutic is writing in notation software to me?

I could easily download a sheet music of Shostakovich's Piano Concerto 2 op 102, II: Andante
but
I could also rewrite the piano part of the sheet in the video 🤔

This piece has become one of my all-time favourites really quickly tbh
youtube.com/watch?v=jFnbnJrpT6

(Shostakovich - Piano Concerto no. 2 Op. 102, II: Andante)

It's an old piece and it looks kind easy tbh but I thought it was quite a pity that, you know, that piece? Especially written for me? I can't play it :T

I just rewrote an entire piece my former guitar teacher had written for me in musescore
that was satisfying

aaaand now I'm gonna take a break from practising by binge-watching vids about music theory 👌

now this definitely does not mean that I don't compose anymore for the time being
I am, but just piano/synth stuff, but no guitar, so I can't finish most of my tracks
so yeah, just so you know^^"

about that, you probably know that I have broken my wrist exactly 2 months ago, now (and if you don't well, now you do)
so I'm kind of taking a break from working on my albums 'cause I still can't play guitar properly :/

so in the meantime, I'd rather be focusing on other stuff, improve my piano playing, learn about theory, basically just
yeah
take a break
