Thursday Afternoon

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.

    I was in the kitchen (laptop on the table) the first time I heard it. I thought it was comming from outside!

    I love this. I added 523.544 seconds of silence to the file to make it 9 minutes long. The file is under 2MB. I’m going to take it to work and have it repeating in iTunes. I might just forward it to everybody I know with a link to your explanation. With your permission, of coarse. Thanks!

    I just realized that it doesn’t have to be every 9 minutes, right? Is there any significance to that length of time?

    No significance at all, except I like the number 9. Originally I wanted to make it random… but random is hard to do….

    Just left the page open for 9 minutes just to hear the bell. Cool! But why can’t I download it. It plays but won’t download.
