"Memory" was a popular song in the early 80's as the climax theme in the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical "Cats". I was just a kid then, and picked up the tune from the radio and played it a lot. I was playing it the other day and got the idea to record my own arrangement with orchestration. So, here it is!

The song was recorded using the Ivory II for piano and Vienna Instruments for strings, brass, woodwinds, and percussion.
It's been a while since my last video and a few things have changed in my recording setup (for those who are interested in such things)...
For one, I've started using the new Ivory 2 Grand Pianos sample library and I really like it! It's not a groundbreaking upgrade from Ivory but there are several enhancements that I really appreciate. I believe my favorite is the new Timbre Shift capability. For me the advantage of this feature is that it allows better placement of the piano track within a mix. Previously, in Ivory, a solo part would sound great, but then added to a mix of other instruments, it would get lost.
Second, I've replaced my DAW computer with a newer, more powerful PC -- which turned out to be a real task. Anyone who uses a DAW with hundreds of gigabytes of samples and instruments probably understands the time consuming job of installing these libraries. It seems like it took me days to finishing the install process and get everything set up the way I had it on my old machine.
Third, this is my first video in HD. I've acquired a Canon 7D, which was used to shoot this video. So far, things have gone pretty good, and I like the quality. We'll see if YouTube plays nice with HD!
Thanks for listening and please let me know what you think!
