Ask Jordan

Hi! I was wondering if you could tell me how you created the first keyboard patch of Overture 1928 (the deep D pad in the beginning of the song). Also, did you use sounds from other sources than the Kurzweil keyboard on the SFAM album? Thanks a lot!

Rick Wakeman once said that his study of Prokofiev greatly influenced his composition. What masters have most informed your compositions? Thank you for the OC!

Hey Jordan, a question here enquiring on the posibility of a full piano sheet book of 'The Astonishing' published by hal leonard? like the ones for Black Clouds and Dramatic Turns, as it is the most inspiring album harmonically. Thanks.

Hi Jordan, do you have any tips on how to prepare for and plan a more entertaining piano performance? For example, it seems quite difficult and unnatural to peek at or interact with the audience, be it only to smile during busy parts. -Georges

Hi Jordan. Have you ever considered adding the cool ragtimey riff from A Change of Seasons, or I've also heard it in the Instrumedley, to Jordan's Riffs? Such an awesome little moment.

Hi Jordan. I recently watched the video tour of your DT rig and really enjoyed the insight into your gear. I noticed the iPad holder you have for your Geoshred iPad and wondered if the holder is something us mere mortals can get our hands on!

Hello wizard! I've seen in the YouTube video introducing your 2019 rig where you use a BOSS FS5U to turn pages on your iPad. Can you share which specific "AirTurn" device you connect with the foot switch? Thanks!

Hey Jordan! In The Great Debate at around 5:10 you do a weird vocal like effect in the background, is this a sample from something? And is there anywhere I can find isolated keys tracks for the Six Degrees album? Many thanks Sir!!

Hi Jordan, could you show some DT riff played with the killing Geoshred app? Have you plan to play in Europe outside festival context?

Hey Jordan, so excited about the upcoming tour! Is there any chance we hear S2N or At Wit's End in the 1st set, or substituting The Glass Prison for Pull Me Under as the encore piece? Thank you!

Hi Jordan! I just got accepted into Wayne State University's Department of Music. I am very curious, despite great change over the years, do you have any tips for me going into a music career or even just university? See you in Detroit, April 2nd!

Hi Jordan! Do you think you'll feature some of the old kurzweil patches in your future work? Some of my favourite sounds you used were on the first half of the Six Degrees album, thank you!

Hi! Would appreciate some advice on visual focus (vs) when playing big jump stride. Should I try to have my vs always accompany the jumps (=quick jumping with eyes which i currently deem dfcult/desorienting) or is that bad when going SUPERfast.
