The farm equipment music video is fun.  Thank you for sharing it.  There is a pianist who plays perfectly just like a machine.  His name is Nobuyuki Tsujii.  He is blind from birth and I can't even begin to tell you how difficult it is to learn how to play the piano when there is no way to read the music score and to see the piano keys.  In 2009, he did the seemingly impossible by winning the Van Cliburn piano competition.  I consider this one of the greatest human achievements ever.  Given my life experience, usually I am not someone who believes in the supernatural, but watching him play makes me wonder if God indeed exists.  How is it possible to learn the most difficult piano pieces by Chopin and Rachmaninoff when you are blind?!

Bach, I have no idea how to explain the answer to your question, but I am certain that God does exist and He plays more than a small part in that remarkable young man's abilities. Some day, after we leave this plane for the next, we can ask and find out.

Thank You for sharing these videos,Bach! I have no doubt in my mind that God blessed him with the ability to play so beautifully! Just as he helped carry  you from the pits of hell to your life as you know it today and blessed you with the courage and determination many do not have to achieve your dreams!  I always tell my sons ,He may not give me everything I want ,but He gives me everything I need!I truly have that faith! At this time ,in my live ,He gave me the gift of knowing you and reading your posts of your struggles and your journey to the happiness and peace you now have!Thank you for taking the time to respond!

I have always wondered if God existed why so much pain and suffering is allowed in this world.  I am not an atheist for I have experienced things beyond scientific explanations such as prophetic dreams.  So I know there is another dimension in life.  I don't think the important people you meet in your life, the ones that make a lasting impact, are random occurrences.  I guess I will probably remain an Agnostic for life, forever wondering about the mysteries in life.

Here is one more piece of divine performance.  It was recorded in 1936 by Ignaz Friedman.  This performance of this particular Chopin Nocturne has never been surpassed.  If you can appreciate 19th century sensibility, this performance is for you.



Here is a 20th century performance of the same piece by a very famous pianist (Daniel Barenboim).  The music is vacuous and has no soul.  It is an example of how not to play the piano.  It seems that as modern technology advances the piano performance gets worse and worse.  The art of music has turned into the art of sound or noise.

As a child my father found that I was an anomaly, in that most 18 month old children would hardly sit still in the presence of classical music, let alone, stand in her chair at
the opera, in the audience, and mimic the conductor, move for move. Which is something that I was told from early on that I did. So imagine my surprise when as a teenager, out of the blue, my father, the evil genius that he was, bestowed upon me a three record (78rpm) set of Peter and the Wolf.

I spent hours listening to every note, every sound, every tone and in my head I could not only name every animal being represented, but also I could tell you what each was saying. I started writing it all down. I got about 3/4 of the way through it when all of my notes disappeared. It took me years to realize that my dad had stolen them in an attempt to profit from them. Little did he know that if he had waited for me to finish my work, and directed me to the little theater in our town, I could have created from that one opera a modern day musical with lyrics. His impatience cost the entire project. Greed is a powerful enemy. It caused my father many a failures in his lifetime. Music however could have easily overcome most all of his problems if he had just listened to it.

Peter and the Wolf by Sergei Prokofiev?  I love that piece!  Can you still discern the story from the music?  It would be nice to read what you hear.  There is one popular interpretation of the music here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_and_the_Wolf

I haven't listened to it in years. When the paperwork that I had worked so hard to create got taken from me, I stopped dealing with any of it and started a completely different project as a means of therapy. I created a 12 panel drawing of the song Hotel California, done completely in pencil on white stock, heavy grade paper. Again, stolen. I'm still fairly sure that that was taken from me by my older brother, but I never had proof. It was an exquisite show for someone as young as I was at the time, and I had hoped to ink and color it, until it was taken from me. I never tried to recreate it.

Art, poetry, music they were all my means of escaping the world around me at the time. And throughout the years I have learned to turn off the amnesty part of the arts and find the cultural side to them. It became quite a freeing experience when I did that. 

As for the link that you provided, I'm a little intimidated by it. It could do one of two things. It could cloud my own interpretation of the song. Or it could actually BE my interpretation of the song. Either way, I would be jaded. However, I will muster up the courage and venture a peak.

Ok, I read his interpretation of his own work and mine was no where near what his was.
In my head there was no cat, no garden and no duck. I heard a boy, a fox, dogs, a hunt and the wolf wandered into the fray causing a huge commotion and a vital distraction for the fox to get away. Pete saved the village from the wolf by default.
