Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2017 - The winning entries

Congratulations to the winners! And thanks to all contestants for being so inspiring. Showing what we can do with Ptq is of course, partly, playing well, but (as I see the meaning of words in voting rules) also about being new and inventive, unusual, creating something that has never been done, or never thouhgt of before, being good in a different and appealing way with Ptq. And this year there are so many entries of such things. So I asked myself - Why does a peace of music appeal to someone and not to others? When trying to get people to vote on your music, its about whether or not its worth getting excited about…. a mystery. Its about more than ”personal taste”….…... But thanks to those who voted for my video. Fifth year in this contest now, and it is still as exciting as the first time. And thanks to the amazing team at Modartt for the contest, and to all forum members for sharing  your knowledge, ideas and experiences. I am really looking forward to next years contest.

Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2017 - The winning entries

Hello, many thanks for all people voting for my video. I'm really happy to see my big works (piano + video) were congratulate with the first place.
The entry winnings are in very diversified style in 2017 (guitar, electro, contemporary music, classical...) and we heard many, many contestants this year (the double than lasts contests), that's incredible and perhaps a new aere for the contest.
Thanks to Modartt for organization year by year and for the prices.
For me it's my last entry, you saw me enought and now it's not normal if I was contestant for next year, my motivation of my participation for the last five contests was to realize a good playing in classical style or presentate my compositions, improve my works, obtain some good appreciations and good places in the contest and now my wish is realised and is the time to I let my place for an another contestant who want realize a similar wish . smile
Best regards. 
Lylo

Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2017 - The winning entries

Dear fellow Pianoteq users and Modartt team,

thank you so much for being this inspiring community of musicians who make creative use of these fantastic modeled instruments provided by Modartt! And thanks to everyone who watched my video and found it worthy of their vote - above all of course a big thanks to the Modartt team for organizing this fine contest and providing the prizes.
As a MIDI guitarist I can now finally play truly convincing grand pianos, upright piano, vibes, lots of electric pianos and even harp - this feels like Xmas and birthday on the same day to me :-).

Congrats to all the other participants - as far as creativity is concerned, for me everyone is a winner here.

Kindest regards,
Eddie

Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2017 - The winning entries

Surely many of us will have been enriched in some way by this year's contest. For me it was great fun participating, and fascinating and inspiring to discover the diverse ways that people use Pianoteq. Many of this year's entries were very impressive, and it was obvious that a great deal of effort went into producing them. Congratulations to the winners, well done to all entrants, and a warm welcome to Eddie and others new to our community.

Re: Pianoteq Video Contest 2017 - The winning entries

Congratulations to all the participants who were numerous this year. For my part, thank you to all who voted for my participation, iconoclast, contemporary, with microtonal pitches. I thought I would be in the bottom of the standings and I'm ranked 4th. And I really appreciate the special prize that the team from Modart / Pianoteq gave me. And all the more so since I've been working for years with Pianoteq for its physical modeling.
PS : Sorry for my bad english.

Thank you, Niclas, I will. It is not an urgent situation for me, however I was monitoring the e-mail folder quite accurately. I understand that sometimes things happen not as expected.

ADDED: solved, received now, thank you very much.
