Wow, that was neat, and I think it was the first explanation I understood well enough to try it myself. I have a new-to-me digital piano, so as soon as I learn to record using it, I think I may try doing this. Without the forty different screen shots, though, I am sorry to say.

Hi Cathy,

I initially was invited to do a video for a Japanese anime soundtrack with 3 other musicians. Then I was invited again for another project, McGyver Theme, with 4 other musicians. This was the 3rd collaboration.

I've never met anyone face to face. So it was an interesting aspect of music collaboration and quite an unusual but enjoyable experience.

Perhaps we could do the same thing in this forum? Everyone, take out your second instruments and start warming up!

Somehow I think trying to tune all 58 (I think - I haven't played it in awhile) of my hammered dulcimer to sound good with people all over the world might be more than I could do smile

What fun projects, though. And your fiddling is beautiful.

This sounds like a really fun idea. I would love to try this. But where do you find good sheet music for piano duets? And how do you match up people to play together, taking into account their playing level?

MaryBee, obviously both needs to decide on the music and look at the parts before committing. Duet sheet music? Plenty out there!

Sorry I won't be much help. But this video reminds me a bit of what some of you are talking about. Perhaps you've seen it.
Very cool.

Sorry, I've never played a duet, so I don't know anything about the music. Do duets typically have both parts playing at the same level, or might one part be easier than the other? Any recommendations for classical style, intermediate/advanced intermediate level? Also, where's a good place to start looking for duet sheet music?

I remember several years ago there was a free site that used midi to connect musicians. Each would record a section of music and the software would send it to all other musicians who could listen to it and record their part. Not sure what happened to it though, but it was a neat idea even though it wasn't realtime.

Btw there's a collaborative project that created a full song over the net which you can listen to freely at http://www.podsafeforpeace.org/ and purchase if you want. Proceeds go to charity, thought it was appropriate to mention with it been a Christmas song too smile

There are different kinds MaryBee - for example, the ones I play with my teacher are significantly harder for the person on the left side. The ones that Augustina and LadyPayne play are balanced for difficulty. I recently asked LadyPayne what they were using and she told me that the Battle Hymn of the Rebpublic came from the Hal leonard Student piano library, a book called God Bless America, level 5. She said they could't play all the pieces in the book so I'm guessing I would hardly be able to pay any of them! lol..... But there are a lot of books in the library at different levels. We could also has the teachers here for some suggestions.

I'm going to be starting some duet work in the new year with some of my teacher's other adult students - I'll see what material she suggests for us.

This sounds great! I think we can break this into a few projects, depending on the level of playing. I am only a beginner and would like to start with something nice and easy.

Anyone interested in trying a piece at a fairly basic level - of about 2 pages, e.g. an extract of Carmen, the part that she dances for the officer - here is how it sounds http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cs377V9dq5g

Once we agree on the piece, I think we can look for the sheet. I have one now but only for solo, and the arrangement is not difficult.

I also would like to share a piece I found some time ago - very similar concept but much simpler: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FpEvE062ipo
