Recorded Insónia. Need critical listening to add in dynamics.

Prelude 1: Working on speed and relaxing. ETA: Sort of kind of played it at 152, which is the outside range, and my wrist hurts. What would it take to relax at that speed?

Harp Recording Locations

I'm delving into the recording details of one of my favorite harp recordings: The Genius of Salzedo by Judy Loman.

It turns out it was recorded at Grace Church-On-The-Hill. No wonder it sounds amazing.

Dear readers, do any of you know of any place like this (old stone cathedral-type church (not like the Old Church downtown)) close to Portland, OR that's super cheap?

Blogger is annoying

I'm trying posting music here again. I recorded dragging cassette tape tied around bass wires through my fingers.

ETA: Nope. It is nowhere to be found. I followed the directions! You can find it here:

Tried the cassette tape thingy. It is interesting, but for any constant drone purposes would probably need to be recorded and looped.

Listened to more versions of Peter Gabriel for friend. Waiting to find out what next direction is.


Practiced Insónia. Not sure if I like it when I play it. And I need to focus on playing hands together. In unison!

Memorizing - or re-memorizing - Zarabanda just using my brain. It's a difficult piece.

I got a couple volumes of piano music by Turina and I LOVE his stuff. Volume 1 has Partita in C in it, which contains Zarabanda. I think I may want to transcribe more of his music.

Exercises and played.
