Mikä inspiroi minua säveltämään uutta pianomusiikkia ? What inspires me to compose new piano music ?

My greatest inspirations in piano music I have got e.g. from Domenico Scarlatti, 
W A Mozart, Ludwig van Beethooven, Frederic Chopin. And from Bill Evans, from Don Grolnick.  

And from Lamin Saho and Jali Kebba playing kora and singing. 

And somehow from  Selim Palmgren, and from Mart Saar and Heino Eller.  I have listened with interest to Bela Bartok and Claude Debussy.

And of course Jean Sibelius inspires me.

And the wind, and rain, and the birds, and the breeze ..

My dear Friends : I wish that you listen to a bit of my new composition Ballade from my site 

Go to Music by Antti .. and to Ballade.

I'll publish the whole work Ballade in next January. 

Best regards,

Uusi pianokappaleeni: Välimerellä ! / My new composition for piano: In the Mediterranean !

In the Mediterranean / Välimerellä

"In the Mediterranean" is a new piano composition by Dr. Antti Hernesniemi. It is in the same time a lyrical as well as a strong piece of music for a listener/musician who wants to find something new and original in piano music. You can load it at CDBaby store. 

"Välimerellä" on uusi pianokappaleeni. Se on samalla lyyrinen, ja samalla voimakas pianokappale, kuuntelijalle ja pianistille, joka toivoo löytävänsä jotain uutta ja alkuperäistä pianomusiikkia. Voit ladata sen oheisen linkin kautta "CDBaby Storen" sivulta.

Update Dec. 2013 : More about "medial prehension" - "Mediaali-ote" ja kynä

My pioneer approach in the article/poster you have read here, was not any experimental one. To shed light on this area, I wanted to interview some voluntary persons which contacted me and which had been using "medial prehension" - as I call it. This area is TOTALLY uninvestigated. Therefore I wanted to get some " first glance view", some clarity on this interesting situation in the pedagogical field. 
Finnish school teachers have not been interested about the ways we learn to use our most important instrument, pen or pencil. Not even teachers of drawing and painting at academies.
This item - how we use the pen - is of uttermost importance.  With this grasp, this grip we decide how our brain, our thinking, our creativity develops.
Best regards,

The author has used "medial prehension" drawing and writing method since 1995 when he found it - not as the first inventor, as he  soon could notice. He has earlier presented the grip …
