I have been meaning to make these paintings for a while. Shortly after starting my GymDreams8 account on Instagram, I ran into a reel by @piano.winn, where he posted videos of himself playing the piano, wearing just shorts and a tank top.

I recalled thinking that if the piano concerts were always that casual, and with men wearing athletic outfits, then I probably would attend one every weekend, instead of the 1-2 classical concerts that I go to.

Piano is something special to me — I have played classical piano since I was six. I was not particularly gifted, though I have played some casual recitals up til college. I no longer play actively these days, but I do write string quartets from time to time.

The music that I write are rather unusual — I write string quartets over commercial dance tracks. I haven’t really come across anyone that does what I do — I would find stems from DJ competitions, remove all the synths, drums and keeping only the vocals, then I would write string quartets over the vocals as I visualize it in my head.

Once that part is complete, I would remix everything together as a dance track but with mostly classical instruments. It‘s a bit nutty — I’d be happy to share them with those of you who know me IRL, since they are published under my real name, and I really want to keep this profile semi anonymous unless we are very close.
