The Reginaldus Liebert CD I bought arrived yesterday. Beautiful 15th century choral compositions. Apparently the old Liebert was considered very talented, but died very young and didn’t leave a lot of music. HERE is a link to the sheet music for a chanson called Mourir me Voy, and HERE is a link to a Midi file of the piece.
I am still experimenting with different microphone set ups for the Tears in the Rain solo guitar recordings. Recorded a little Bombay in my living room today. I am so used to the mic and pre-amp combo I use in the studio that it might take me a while to get used to this. Also, in the studio I keep the microphone fairly close,about 18″ from the guitar, but to capture a little of the room-sound – otherwise what’s the point of making a location recording – I need to keep a little more distance, which changes the sound a lot.
You might have noticed that a bell sounds after you have my diary page open for 9 minutes? I recorded it in my studio a while ago. If you like you can keep the diary page open and hear the bell every 9 minutes. HERE is an explanation. Also, I loaded that bell sound into my Treo 650 and like it much better than the other ringtones. Now I enjoy when somebody calls, although sometimes I won’t answer because I prefer to hear the bell again… You can download the small mp3 file HERE.
