Recital #31 is now open for submissions!

Believe it or not, it’s time for the 31st quarterly “Beginners and Beyond” recital hosted by the Piano World Adult Beginners Forum! smile The recital will be posted some time on the 15th of August, which means that the submissions must be in by 9:00 pm Eastern Daylight Time, August 14. Please note this deadline is very firm; I cannot start working on the recital until it is closed, and once it is closed, no new entries can be added.

While any and all styles of music are welcome, we do ask that it be piano related. Only one recording may be submitted per forum member (although that recording may consist of a medley of two or more very short related pieces).

If you are fairly new to the piano, please do not be intimidated by some of the talent here in the ABF. We all consider ourselves to be beginners even though we may have been playing for some time. And, we LOVE to hear recordings from folks new to the keyboard. So even if you’re on your first Alfred’s method book, we would *really* enjoy hearing from you. heart

Recital submissions must be in MP3 format. The maximum size of the file is 20 MB. We recommend encoding the recording at 192 kbs with a constant bitrate, as that works best with the online streaming player. At that bitrate, a 20 MB file works out to be about 7-9 minutes in length. Your recording will be normalized when placed in the consolidated zip files, but your original link will still be available for those who want it.

If you are new to recording your music, there are several threads in the forum archives that address the ways and means. See the "Important Topics in the AB Forum" thread stickied at the top of the AB forum page. Audacity is an excellent free recording application that can be used.

If you’re new to the forum and the recitals, I encourage you to browse through a few of the past recitals to see what they’re like. An easy way to find past recitals is to use Sam S.’s extremely helpful recital index, located here:

http://recitals.pianoworld.com/wiki/index.php/Main_Page


Submitting Your Recording:

We will be using again the absolutely marvelous automatic web-based recital program that mahlzeit wrote for us. You will upload your mp3 file to the recital server as part of the recital submission process.

When you have your mp3 file ready, go to:

http://recitals.pianoworld.com/


and follow the instructions there. Please note that this URL reflects our new permanent home for all the recital files. Once you have uploaded your info to the automated recital software, you will receive a confirmation e-mail. You will have the opportunity to revise your submission any time up until the deadline. If you have any problems at all using the new website, or if you do not receive a confirmation e-mail within a few hours, just PM me. If you have not participated in past recitals using this software, you may want to submit your recital piece at least a day in advance in case you run into any problems with it.

The recital website uses the following submission template to be filled out along with your attached music file. You may want to have your responses to these fields prepared in advance so all you have to do is cut and paste:

Performer's Name: {forum ID and real name if you’d like}
Where you are located: {optional}
Avatar image link: {optional}
Experience: {Yrs/Mos of piano playing experience}
Link to YouTube or other video: {optional}
Home page link: {optional}
Title of piece/composer:
Source of music: {sheet music, improvised score, play-by-ear, etc}
Instrument used: {Piano make, keyboard model, etc.}
Recording method: {audacity, Zoom, digital to PC, etc.}
Constructive technical feedback wanted: {Yes/No}
Additional Info: {Your thoughts on the piece, what you had for lunch, etc.}


The due date for all submissions is 9:00 pm US EASTERN DAYLIGHT TIME on August 14, 2013.


Did I mention that the 9:00 pm deadline was firm?

Think "consistency of concrete." smokin

By submitting a piece to the recital, you are certifying that it is a recording of your own performance.

Again, the recital order will be presented in the order the pieces were received, so the sooner you send in your piece, the higher you will be on the list! You can revise your entries on the template (e.g., thoughts about your piece, adding YouTube links, and the like) any time and not lose your place in the recital queue, but if you resubmit your recording at any time, for any reason, you will be bumped to the end of the list.

Should anyone have any questions at all on what to do or how to do it, this is the place to ask. Remember, there are NO stupid questions, as we have a steady flow of new members in AB Forum for whom this is their first recital, so your questions will probably help to eliminate other members’ problems. Please ask away! smile

Let's all go out and brave that Red Dot and share a lot of beautiful music! thumb

In at three ... I'll be taking another crack at it tonight though.

I'll be quite happy to give up this spot if I can get a better take. It has been a frustrating endeavor to date.

Whew! You guys are fast! I am in at no. 8. I left my computer for a quick practice, and came back to see the recital was open and there were five entries! By the time I finished uploading mine, there were two more.

I will be in late, this time. My piece isn't even completely learned yet. But I'll be in, no matter what. I refuse to break my streak, even if it's a pretty short streak,n.

The mp3 sound file is required. A video is optional. If you only have a video you can extract the audio from that.

I have a recording of my own composition "The Dancing Swan" ready, but will only be able to upload it in a few hours, or tomorrow.
The video is already online; I linked it on the "Composers Lounge" forum.

Is it ok to submit more than one piece? I thought maybe I could try to produce a decent recording of the Beethoven Sonata I played on the European Piano Party. But I haven't recorded it yet.


Everything is possible, and nothing is sure.

I think you can only submit two pieces if they are on the same mp3 file. Just a single submission is allowed.

Right. And the two pieces should be a medley of related, shorter pieces; e.g., you wouldn't want to pair a five minute Einaudi piece with a 6 minute Schubert just to skirt around the rules of only having a single submission per person. wink

Ah yes. I just read the paragraph in the opening post.

"While any and all styles of music are welcome, we do ask that it be piano related. Only one recording may be submitted per forum member (although that recording may consist of a medley of two or more very short related pieces)."

So it will only be a composition of my own. And since the Beethoven Sonata has three movements, I will not post it in one recital.

Hi Peyton,

Even I have a YouTube link, I still need to extract it to MP3 for submission. It would be more fun to listen and watch at the same time than just listening to the audio.

The sonata - I believe - would be ok as it is ONE piece with three movements. I am pretty sure others have done pieces with 2 or 3 movements in the past.

Hi Allard,

Thanks. I do that all the times with a software converting AVCHD into different audio or video formats directly. But I was just saying that it is better to submit the video clips at well because recital should be "watchable" and it's more fun.

Mines in but my usual recipe got foiled this time. You see, I've noticed that Monica likes to 'open' the recital submission thread very late at night just before bedtime so she doesn't have to worry about it the next morning.

This usually works out perfectly for me because the west coast is several hours behind and I can literally just pick what number submission to be since most people are long asleep dreaming.

Not his time! It was 11:30 P:M (Arizona time) last night and to my dismay.... no early recital submission thread! Crap, now what?

Well, short story is I got beat out by 17 others as well as had a horrible nights sleep just thinking of how many people are sneaking in ahead of me while I'm sleeping early in the morning. Oh well.

I'm submitting an original 'cover' version of Brian Crains "Rain". It is a beautiful relaxing piece that I reworked a bit here and there and everywhere. I could just call it a 'cover' but I know calling it an 'original cover' drives Peyton nuts plus I don't have a more accurate way to describe what I am doing so 'original cover' will just have to do for now.

Mae, people do both. The mp3 is required, and then there's a place to submit the link to the video.

As for "should" be watchable - well, I don't watch the videos. "Should" is kind of a big word laugh Everyone's different. And the way it is now, those who want to submit and/or watch videos can. Works for me -

I download the mp3s in the zips and listen during the day. Wouldn't work well for the videos. Not sure I'll actually get to see too many of the Grieg recital pieces frown

Of course it's just fine submitting the mp3 according to the guideline. I'd do both if I ever want to make a submission. I have been posting on YouTube and some Google plus communities anyway. It is fun. smile

Am thinking to submit a piece this time. It will be another work in progress and I think that is all I will ever submit since I can never get my pieces polished and even if I could I would blow it when it comes to the red dot! I just tried recording now and it was rocky, slow, and the dynamics were lacking....but I might submit it anyway just to participate. smile The piece is by Bortkiewicz: The Angel Op.30 No.4

Wow, 20 already in on the first day. I usually need every minute of the 3 months to get a submission done. I feel like I'm ahead of the game just reading the Call For Submissions on the first day.

Wow, I can't believe in at #5. That's the earliest I've ever been ready. But I am so done with Bach right now; I just can't work on it any more. Now on to some Chopin and Debussy for a much-needed change.

patH, I submitted a 3-movement Haydn sonata for one of the recitals, and no one yelled at me. You just have to be careful that the mp3 file size is less than 20MB. People can always fast-forward if they get bored listening. smile

Would be great to hear you submission even if it is not quite ready. I know we all strive to allow others to only hear the perfect side of our playing but this is one place where we all understand there is never a perfect.

Battling the red dot is troubling for me too, I must have attempted my video a 100 times before I captured two take to decide from. I think it does get easier or at least I certainly hope it does


Problems with piano are 90% psychological, the other 10% is in your head.

I'm in at #21, although if history is any guide, I'll likely wind up lower. It feels good not to be on the tail end of the recital, where only the biggest diehards wind up listening and commenting (along with contrarians who start at the end, and my nice friends from AOTW).

There must be something in the water. I'm doing it on the 1st day instead of in the last hour... must be a full moon or something. If AimeeO posts immediately after me, then we'll know it's a sign of the end times or something. smile
