Lovely. That makes a real change from the material I usually listen to and what a lot of fun you must have had doing it!

Made me smile Martin, thanks mate I've had a shocking day. Bung your sop in the middle of your gob like Rasaan Roland Kirk and it would be complete. (note to myself: be more open to classical pieces)

Cheers. A longer-term plan is to try playing some quartets on tenor, alto , sop and nino. Bit more trouble , though 'cause you have to put the bari and alto parts a tone down or the tenor and sop parts a tone up (hope I got that the right way round).

Nice stuff.

Can I ask how you recorded it, both in terms of the equipment used and also the order of recording and how you kept the rhythm going and kept together ?

Thanks.

Recorded with Audacity, using Zoom H2 as audio interface. Used Audacity to generate a click track first. Handy thing about Mozart is that you can get away with playing in strict tempo. If I wanted some rubato, I might record myself clapping the pulse first, or something like that. Then recorded the tenor part then the alto. If I can be bothered, I'll redo the tenor part some time , as some of the intonation is a bit ropey, especially on the low notes. Should be easier while listening to the alto. Added a touch of reverb and moved the tenor 60% left and alto 60% right. An odd thing with Audacity is that when you export to WAV, it insists on putting all the tracks in even if they're muted. So I had to delete the click track, export and then undelete. Maybe later versions of Audacity have fixed that, I don't know.

lovely job.

I'm fascinated how in the soundcloud visual representation you can see the structure of the piece so clearly.

I noticed that, too. I can hear differences between the repeats but whatever is being measured there looks the same down to quite small details.

Re: Number 1

The heading of my last post should of course be Number 1. Kev? Pretty please?
