Well, I'm in sooner than I thought I would be.

I noodled about trying out the pedal and it came together faster than I expected. I'm in at number 30 smile

As of 1 hour ago I have a freshly tuned piano so I expect to record sometime this week. grin As long as the subject of editing has been brought up I have a question. It won't matter for this time around because I plan to submit a "piece". I'm not sure I'd be brave enough any time soon anyway, but when recording a song would it be considered OK to record vocals seperate and combine the tracks or would it be best to just wait until one is capable of singing and playing at the same time? On one of my past piano bar submissions it was mentioned that it would have been nice to have vocals with the song. I used to be in choir in school (a long time ago)so I'm at least considering the future possibility but I don't think I'm at a point with my playing that I can concentrate on both at the same time. Just curious what anyone's thoughts on this might be.


I'll figure it out eventually.
Until then you may want to keep a safe distance.

I am relatively new to the forum and this is the first recital that I am participating in. I vote for one clean recording, the less editing the better. If a person can't sing and play at the same time, I vote for waiting until they can, and/or picking an easy song where they can do it. Another option might be having two different people on the recording, one playing, one singing.

If a person wants to get into editing and arrangements, there are any number of other forums where those tend to be the rule rather than exception. Garage Band software is extremely popular for a reason.

A virtual recital, I see as more of a one-take near live situation. I understand that most are going to do multiple recordings before getting a clean take, but that is far different from cutting and pasting, or laying down separate tracks and combining them.

So that's my vote, I understand that others might have other opinions.

There are plenty of people who have done multi-track recordings in past recitals. Keyboard, drums, string sounds, synthesizer and whatever - look back through the past recitals. Some very creative things have been shared. Remember the guy with the raindrop prelude and the thunderstorm soundtrack? That was cool.

So I see no problem with multi-track recordings, even if it is just adding vocals.

Harpsichord? Great.
Organ? the king of instruments is welcome too - we've had that in the past as well.

Multi-track recordings are okay so long as each track isn't a cut and paste job.

For example, say your playing a tune on a digital piano which contains piano, flute and strings. A multi-track recording combining all three instruments recorded separately will be allowed. It just defeats the purpose if any track be it a multi-track recording or a solo piano performance is comprised of a bunch of cut and paste sections spliced together.

This topic has been discussed at length before. Just remember we are trying to replicate a REAL live recital. As it is, everyone is already getting a HUGE advantage over a real live recital in the number of 'takes' we do to select a good performance from. A live recital doesn't have this luxury.

An unedited, one pass performance should not be too much to ask. You have an unlimited amounts of attempts to get it right. This isn't marshmallow land!

Maybe it would help to put the no-cut-and-paste-edit policy into the announcement posts of the recitals.

I for my part would not want to submit anything for the recital that contains even a single wrong note. So I'll wait until I can manage a one pass recording where at least all notes are correct. But that's of course only my personal opinion.

If I had waited until I had no wrong notes I would never have participated at all - including this recital.

Ditto. Almost. In THIS recital I am proud to say I have no wrong notes...... I just left out 2. Do you think anyone will spot that? shhhhhh It can be our little secret, ok? smile

I have participated in six ABF recitals (including this one), and every pieces I sent had misplaced notes. So what?

Matter of taste of course. The pieces I play are very short and simple and to play the correct notes is the least I want to do.

I have to buy a power adapter for my audio recorder so I can record all my practising sessions in the hope to get the one recording on tape.

Update: Got a lucky run and submitted my piece!

In at #33 with some Gershwin BUT but I cheated. I haven't actually recorded yet. Figured committing my name to the submission would help me get my act together!

( I am happy with the pieces playability its the technical drag of recording and processing that I need motivational assistance with!)

Does anyone else see really unusual characters rather than Handel, or is it something odd about my Firefox install? Oh, this is from the recital listing page.

EDIT: I just looked at it with IE, and it appears the same there as well.

+1.

Though I suppose there's a threshold, the proportion of wrong notes and right notes grin

Edit: Edited the composer name in the recital entry list

Clavboy - Yes, it displays correctly in your signature. (at least for me it does!)

Glad you got a recording you are happy with and that you've joined us for the recital!!!

I submitted mine last night -- #31. Full disclosure: I did do some editing. It's three short pieces that I recorded separately, then put into one mp3 file using Audacity. Hope that doesn't bother anyone too much. The best part of my recording was that I have at least one mistake in each of the pieces. Why is that good? Because in previous recitals, if I made a mistake, it would throw me off so much that the recording would be ruined. I think I'm finally learning how to "play through" my mistakes!
