I've not been listening to much music, but I'm creating my own song covers on piano, by writing sheet music.

Very nice!! πŸ˜€

I'm a little late getting to this, but just listened to both of your tunes β€” that's some great playing. Also, really cool program you use to visualize your playing too.

Speaking of tonal visualizers, I really love this video Vulfpeck put out visualizing James Jamerson's bass playing on Ain't No Mountain High Enough... dude is incredible!

I'm fascinated by Lagrimas Negras, a wonderful Cuban song.
Trying to sing it too

Woooooaaaa this is wonderful!

The song + the video. It all sounds like it happened so spur of the moment. Had to look up a translation for the lyrics! And they did not disappoint β€” such a beautiful tune!

So simple yet profound

πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ί Un jardinero de amor, planta una flor y se va.
πŸ‡¨πŸ‡Ί Otro viene y la cultiva, ΒΏde cuΓ‘l de los dos serΓ‘?
πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ A gardener of love, plants a flower and leaves
πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Another comes and cultivates it, which of the two will it be?

pure poetry

Agreed! Such a beautiful couple of lines and the simplicity really amplifies it.

I really love how it sounds in both languages too. So perfect that the translation turned out so pretty.

Great song! And though it's a kinda small addition, Janelle MonΓ‘e is rocking it as always β€” she is totally one of my faves.

I've been jamming to J Dilla this AM. 😎

For all y'all that dig lofi hip hop beats, give Dilla a spin and you won't be disappointed. Dude was doing lofi before it was a thing!

My last discovering is blume, a channel in Youtube that have a lot of sets with ambient music.

Fully recomended for coding:
