I've enjoyed reading what people had to say about their experience with the piece - kind of adds a personal touch. But I've never participated on the PC e-citals to know how it's handled.

Hi, Dipsy! Our last few e-citals have been posted at http://ecital.net/ . We were able to introduce the piece, as well as engage in discussion about each posted recording, as each recording had it's own page. Something tells me this particular Mazurka e-cital will take a different form. I, too, am waiting with bated breath to see how this develops! smile

Please put me down for Op 30, No 1. I need to get to work, and figure out how to post a recording too.

If you feel the need to write a paragraph or so you can send it to us with your recording. Preferably you would say all you need to say with the music. smile

Gerg hasn't posted here in over a year. It would be nice if he hosted it. It was easy to go from piece to piece on his site, but I doubt that is going to happen.

Edit: unless I missed it, none of the mechanics have been discussed. Where will this be hosted? Video or audio only?

Oh, buh-ruhther! Poly, just what *is* your vision for this e-cital? Clearly, it diverges from from previous e-citals in either the ABF forum or Pianist Corner. What is/are the purpose(s)? (Please be clear.) What is the format? (In other words, how will it be presented, practically speaking?) How will the hosting of sound files be accomplished and organized? Are there any restrictions we should know about before devoting our lives to this endeavor, only to have a rule pop up in the future that nullifies our participation? Curious minds want to know.

We will compile the recordings/videos of each opus together and then post them as a group. We won't need to "host" anything - just embed.

Devoting your lives? Nullifying your participation? wink

I can't think of any restrictions on anything. What kind of restrictions do you want to know about? Submit your recording to us, and we post it. That's basically all there is to the practical aspect.

Will there continue to be passive-aggressive/condensing answers to all questions? (this one included)

I can't for the life of me think how my answers there were passive-aggressive or condescending. CB asked questions, and I answered them to the best of my ability. Perhaps we're just looking at this from different points of view.

By the way, did you mean condensing or condescending? laugh

I didn't see the video at first so I looked this up on Wiki and read the quote of Mr. Wizard: "Be just what you is, not what you is not. Those that do this are the happiest lot." thumb

Sorry for the delayed response. I had to watch that entire video! laugh

Poly and I discussed a few different options for hosting the videos. I'm not entirely sure we're 100% sold on one method over another. I think the frontrunners right now are youtube/soundcloud hosting and embedding the performance in a post. It's a little crude, but if we use youtube, then anyone who wants a video posted can do so. (I also have accounts on both platforms, so this is easy for me to do.)

I tried looking up a couple different types of ecitals. I must say that last link Cinnamonbear provided was very new to me! I am not familiar with those platforms, but not averse to trying to figure it out if it is the best presentation method.

My original idea was to create a "playlist" in youtube, and embed that in a post. But I'm open to ideas that cut down on workload and make it easier to manage the music. smile


RE: "blurbs". I think, regardless of platform, there will be ample space to say something. Every concert we go to has "program notes". wink What format we do this in will vary based on presentation style, but the space should be there (ie- whether in youtube comments, or bulleted in the PW posts, etc).

Happy to entertain additional thoughts. But only if you continue to call me Mr. Wizard. grin


Every day we are afforded a new chance. The problem with life is not that you run out of chances. In the end, what you run out of are days.

Dear Mr. Wizard, grin

As Damon indicated, Gerg has been busy with other things, lately. The e-cital.net format was great while it lasted, (although not without its own issues) and maybe someday we can use it, again. Since it is not available, I would suggest looking at the ABF formats, and the way they are organized. Some include a "locked thread" of submissions, and encourage discussion in a separate recital discussion thread. I really liked the way that the most recent Grieg e-cital was organized. But whatever you decide, I would also encourage you to apply "least restrictive environment" principles regarding submissions and links. Look at the diversity of hosting sites represented in Member Recordings. Personally, I would not want to have to open a Sound Cloud account when I have a perfectly good Boxnet account working for me! wink My hope would be that you would allow people to submit links to their recordings in the format that works best for them, as long as they are stream-able.

Thanks for your consideration! thumb

Judy Darst = Musica71

A regular on the amateur competition circuit and a fine pianist and PW contributor. C'mon Poly. Get with it.
