Recital #34 is now open for submissions!

Believe it or not, it’s time for the 34th 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 May, which means that the submissions must be in by 9:00 pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time, May 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, I strongly encourage you 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 TIME on May 14, 2014.


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

I'm number three! I'm number three! Unless I decide I get a better recording a few days later and change my submission.... Although being in the top 5 is definitely a first for me, which is its own motivation for just keeping this recording.

No worries, I just listened to dynamobt's recording and I think the audio file must be badly corrupted. It probably needs to be updated wink

But the title looks quite crappy :-(

Monica, it seems the webpage throwing up over the "ä". Will it turn up ok in the final page? Or do I need to use a special code for it?

I am in at 9. Here in Switzerland we have to get up quite early to compete with US evening time zones! I am happy to be in the top ten. This will be my 10th recital! There is already some wonderful music submitted! I cannot wait to hear it.

Maybe just edit by substituting ä with ae.

Well, today Mrs Hunky and I entered our 'transition period'. This is a time when a lot of things happen for us. For one, I leave 100* + daytime temps and enter below freezing night time temps due to being at nearly 8000 ft elevation.

I leave my okay sounding digital piano and get absolutely blown off the bench with the ridiculous power of the Mason & Hamlin BB. Seriously, the difference is just crazy. Lets just say I'm glad the roof shingles on the house are screwed and not nailed! WOW!

This is also the time of year my internet connection gets to the point of near unbearability! My current satellite [and only available internet connection] is so pathetically slow, it rivals the speed of my reverse osmosis water filter! Actually, I think the water filter is faster. Not kidding!

I just played the mighty Mason for the first time in nearly six months and while the experience was almost spiritual, I came to the conclusion that I need a few more days of 'acoustic re-acquaintance' ....along with a tuning! [I got a twangy key somehow].

So, it may be a bit longer before I'm able to submit; but I'm working on it.

My piece will be a 'double cover' which means it will be my cover version of 'The Coors' cover version of R.E.M's tune "Everybody Hurts" Hunky style. That should be easy to remember smile

You can't listen until after the recital goes "live" on the 15th. Then Monica will start two new threads, one for listening, one for commenting.

Yes, the software has conniptions when you use fancy characters. It won't turn out okay on the final page... I usually have to go in and laboriously edit out miles of weird html (or whatever all that is) from the copy and paste file on recital night. So it would be much easier for me if you (and anybody else who has fancy characters) edits them out of your submission on the front end. Just changing the description won't make you lose your place in the queue.

Thanks!

I can't completely tell where the encoding is being inconsistently handled on the server, but you may be able to enter the title with the a-and-umlaut replaced (encoded) as "ä"

Von fremden Ländern und Menschen

which would then appear as:
Von fremden Ländern und Menschen



I'd rather play badly than not at all...

Monica, before I start hacking in all these codes, can you confirm that the suggestion by carlos88 would work? Or, that it would appear properly when you release the text?

You're talking to a computer dummy, wouter79. I have no idea if Carlos's idea would work. All I know is that when somebody uses a strange character the program doesn't like, it produces about 3 lines of gibberish that looks scarily similar to the REAL code, and I have to painstakingly go through and separate the bad gibberish from the good gibberish in a trial and error sort of way. I'd just as soon we sacrifice phonetic accuracy for administrator ease. help

That was definitely my fault when editing the message and losing some of the quote wrappers.

I've got one Billy Joel song recorded and in the hopper, but was considering to submit another instead. But now I see (in post #1) that the "recording may consist of a medley of two or more very short related pieces."

Does that mean that I can submit TWO pieces back to back (related because they're both by Billy Joel) as a medley? (Total time would be about 8 minutes.) If so, would I physically have to play them in realtime back-to-back? Or could I take the best recording of each and attempt "splice" them together?

I'm not looking to "cheat", but just want to clarify that rule.

Thanks!

Hey, Newbert, you can submit the two Billy Joel pieces as a medley, but they need to be submitted as a single mp3 file. You could do this either in a heroic bout with the Red Dot and playing them back to back real time, or you can edit them together (and just mention that you spliced them together in your comments).

That's not cheating, in my book. smile

Newbert, these recitals were set up as a way to somewhat replicate the setting of a real recital. In many ways, it IS a 'real' recital as we are submitting our best recorded performances for others to hear and enjoy.

Of course, there is a slight catch. More like a perk. A pretty big one!

The 'perk' is that in this online format, the performances are not 'live', but rather recorded. Unlike a live performance, you are able to make as many attempts at getting your best 'take' of your performance as you want. First take, second, fifth, forty third...whatever. This is a HUGE benefit that a lot of us may take for granted. I for one would probably choke in a live concert setting in which you must perform your best every first performance.


Anyway, in a live recital, if you were to perform a compilation of several medleys, that would be fine. As long as you strung them together as one complete performance done in one sitting. If you want to perform several medleys in our ABF recitals, it would only be fair to everyone else to do this compilation in one complete sitting. Just as you would in a live recital. Of course, just like everybody else, you can make as many attempts at your 'one' complete performance. This is what we are all doing. Unlimited attempts at one complete submission.

If you were to record several individual tunes and then splice them together as a medley, then that's what you would have....a spliced together medley of individually recorded tunes. That would be the equivalent of someone recording their performance in several individually recorded sections and then splicing them together as one complete recording/medley.

I hope I've supported my logic as to why I would suggest you record your several tunes back to back...and end up with a single performance medley of several compiled tunes.

I look forward to hearing it. Medleys, original compositions, written score, whatever. It's all good.

I'd just as soon we sacrifice phonetic accuracy for administrator ease. help


ok thanks. Am I right that you are just create a new thread here on PW and then copy the texts one by one from the program into this new thread? If that's the case, Carlos's suggestion would not work either and "& amp;" would just show up like that, and not like "ä".

BTW I notice right now that this forum also does weird things with the text. If I type "& amp;" but without the space as it should be, I get only "&"
