I have been playing piano for about 14 years and I am thinking to record a CD/album with piano improvisations.
Is this a common thing to do? These songs will not necessarily have sheet music.
I am thinking to simply stay at the piano and record music for about 2 hours and then process and eventually fix/improve the MIDI notes in some places and make a ~1 hour long album with ~14 songs, let's say.
My questions are:
- Is this a good idea at all? Or should I write the sheet music first and then record the songs?
- I is recommended to add other instruments such as bass or strings/pads to improve the background?
