I’ve been fiddling with minidisk transfers and mp3 transformations for the last few days, on behalf of an actively musical section on this blog. Fortunately I have, at least since 2003, been making quite a lot of tour-recordings; unfortunately, recordings made by, for instance, balancing a stereo microphone on some ridge not even close to the orchestra have their limitations.
But the concept of a sketchbook is modern, so what the hey. And fortunately again, some of the samples were certainly made by professionals, using professional equipment.
The new mp3 page will soon be completed with more music; the necessary information about the other musicians; and other items of interest. As sketchbooks go, I can’t guarantee that all the files will be here forever.
