Clarinet Trio Project part 1
This is a bit ambitious in terms of recording technique, for someone like me who does this in his spare time :o) The challenge was coordinating the three parts (via headphones and metronome set up) and also keeping a sense of musicianship that made the recording sounds like 3 players performing live, or at least not played by same person on separate tracks. Also another challenge is keeping the parts in tune ... the clarinet (like many other woodwind instruments) gets sharp in tuning as it warms up and you can imagine playing three times over several takes can cause a lot of challenge in keeping the piece in tune.
So the music is not classical nor jazzy ... it's the well known Teddy Bears' picnic, which has been skillfully and humorously arranged into a fugue by Clifton Hughes (father in law to my previous clarinet tutor, Lenny Sayers). I enjoyed recording it, on my Bb clarinet on 3 separate tracks. As usual via GarageBand app on the iPad.
Hope you like it
A charming piece Max, enjoyed it and great to see the progression in the complexity of the challenge to slot this all together. Nice work!Jun 18, 2012 : maximus Says:
