cmiVFX has released the latest treat for its SideFX Houdini training product line titled "Houdini Audio Driven Animation". Modern technology gives us many opportunities to add a new sense to the common things. We can listen to the sounds of the universe, we can view the deepest ocean or we can visualize musical composition. In this video we'll do the latter. Using the time tested and industry proven Houdini procedural approach and its unique set of tools in CHOP, SOP and POP contexts, our piano will play in unusual way. In this unique training video, the user will learn techniques on how to extract data from MIDI files and how to use that data for piano animation and particle kinematics. As usual, we through back a nod to the well known cmiVFX style for making videos and break loose on some killer procedural modeling techniques using loops, Hscript and python scripting. For particles we'll use VEX, both for building ballistic trajectories and creating collisions. When your done watching this video, you will be left with a Houdini digital asset that can be reused again and again in your procedural pipeline.

Nikolay Medtner’s 14 piano sonatas are considered the most significant achievement in this genre by any composer since Beethoven. After the success of his First Piano Sonata (GP617) he turned to Goethe for inspiration, and the life and love-affirming Sonata-Triad Op. 11 translates the poet’s words of passion, suffering and redemption into sound. The capricious, mysterious and beautiful Sonata-Skazka is a masterpiece in miniature and was once Medtner’s most performed work. Dating from his years of exile, the eloquent themes of the fourteenth and final Sonata-Idyll linger long in the memory.

Following his highly acclaimed surveys of the piano works of Beethoven and Schubert, British pianist Paul Lewis turns to the romantic period and Brahms's mighty D minor Piano Concerto. Lewis performed the work across Europe in 2014 and in the US for his New York Philharmonic debut. In a review of that concert, New York Times critic Anthony Tomassini praised Lewis for his, "majestic and insightful performance," adding, "I have seldom heard the contrasting theme, which sounds like an affirming chorale, played with such elegant shaping of inner voices." For this new recording, Lewis is accompanied by Daniel Harding leading the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
