I hadn't realized one could see the submissions before the recital goes live. Where/how?

And by the way, I love Songs without Words, too. Might submit one next time.

I'm in! Number 27.

This is only day 3 and we're already at 27! I wonder how many we'll have in total this time?

Looks like a great program!

I can make that four.
I recorded op 102 no 4 a few months ago but was disappointed with it. Listening again it's not as bad as I remember.

I just added another Chopin wink

And out of the window goes my resolution to avoid well-known and overplayed pieces... well at least it's as short as it can get whistle

lol looks like Chopin will win (as usual). 7-4 is a pretty big lead at this stage.

Even those of us who have recorded many times can still screw things up! Did several takes of my piece this morning and got something I thought would be OK. When I loaded the file off the Zoom it was totally silent. Seems I somehow changed it to record from external mics. I have no external mics, so - I have a wonderful recording of silence!

Oh well.

That Cage piece was about the sounds of the audience reacting to the pianist not playing anything, so I ought to add some sighs, rustling of candy wrappers, coughing, and then laughter when they find out I screwed up - then submit it to the recital. My best playing ever!

In at 41 with Haydn's Little Serenade, hate to miss Feb ..it a birthday month! smile

PS even though it's a short piece , I had a difficult time recording. The laptop, or my cables aren't as tight, and that results in panning of left and right speaker sound volume. It took a while of fidgeting with connections but it worked finally. I should've kept my old dell , the new one is j.....!$2^%!!

Can't be late - either you make the deadline, or you don't laugh I was able to sneak in last night at #47.
