Composer needs Pianist for recording mp3's
« on: August 28, 2015, 03:32:14 PM »
I am looking for pianist to play and record any or all of my 30 compositions onto an mp3 file format.  Can be recorded at your home or studio on a well tuned acoustic piano or good digital piano.  The quality of the recording is not as important as the performance that will need to show musical maturity and good interpretation. Free scores available to all who wish to audition. for more details visit my website www.robinlamott.com or PM me.

Nice pieces. I don't know that I'll record all of them but I may record one or two just for fun.

Here see if you think I am worthy for some free scores if I record yours.

After the way you treated a lot of our members on here. What makes you think we're going to volunteer to record your pieces?  ;)

When I went to your website, this is the first thing I find.

Melodic
Unpretentious
Inspired

Your personality appears to be quite the opposite of that. Also, the music is quite boring   ::)

There seems to be a little confusion so I will make it more clear.  I am a web designer (my day job)

Those pianists that I chose can record as many as as few pieces as they like however - If you record minimum of 15 pieces I will make them their own website.  Those that record just 5 pieces will get their own page on my website.

There is a reasonable period of time to record pieces, I don't expect the impossible and I am not in a hurry. More importantly to me is a serious commitment to do so, so that I can close this project from further applicants. I have a permanent wrist injury, so I will need pianists on other projects too and on other pieces that I will compose etc.

If you want to apply and have your own website then we can help each other. That's the deal, sorry I am not offering money.

just out of curiosity what would it cost to have you give me my own website--what is the value of this  prize.  I seriously might be interested and I could record all of your music.   I have a YT account but no website..  tell me more please about what you are offering  what kind of website what features ...

dc -I have sent you a PM with details.

For the benefit of all the readers here I will just elaborate more about this prize. It's an unusual prize and only suitable for those that need a website, but, hang on, musicians ALL should have a website, it's a competitive world out there and even if you are looking for employment it will give you an edge. A personal website can be all about you, it's there to promote you.   :P   

Play and record minimum of 15 songs
If you record 15 songs you get your own website . The value of your website would be $2,000 (but worth much more in real terms) and with that you get to chose your own website name, and one year worth of maintenance. Maintenance includes, hosting, domain name registration yearly renewals and updates to your website in my case (unlimited times).  After one year each successive year will cost you $250 per year for this service to continue.  That $250 is what it costs me to pay the servers, your name renewals, hosting, security etc, so I would in effect be working for you for free every time you need to update something or make any changes which I will do (unlimited number of times).  I look at it this way.  If you are a worthy pianist then you are also an asset to me.     

Play and record 5 pieces
Also if any of you record 5 pieces only, I will give you your own page on my website.  You can have anything on it you like, u-tube videos, mp3, bio, news, pics, links, etc.  You would be listed under a 'Pianists' category.  No ongoing fees ever, free maintenance for life. 

To audition just send me your youtube video or an mp3 of 2 works.  Please no time wasters, this is serious guys.   ::)

Loved your interpretation by the way... I think the best bit was the sensual words at the end.     ;D

To me Robin... the fact that you have on your web-site the words 'Melodic, unpretentious, Inspired' seems like a lame attempt to fool people into thinking that is what your music is.

Kind of like seeing an a business card the words 'Yes, I'm a real doctor'.

i am reading this situation as follows--based on this thread and the previous one

  you must not be that serious about having these recorded..  or you yourself must not think to highly of your own work...or maybe  you are thinking that because this is so easy for us that we should just do it and not expect a lot of money and we should be excited to play this new music because we only get to play Beethoven,  so excited that all you need do is offer a fake prize,that will end up costing us money...and most likely costs you nothing.

you don't believe your music is worth the money or you don't believe my skills are worth the money either way.... your offer is not worth it to me.   Additionally, you sound like a hard customer to please--especially with your emphasis on artistic expression in these recordings--what I hear in that statement is...  after you record these I can say the are not expressive enough and stiff you... out of your semi-free prize

when I said someone might play these for you if you were nice about it---this is not what I
meant.

you want to sell this music? so you want other people to buy music you were unwilling to spend any money on?.... 

OR
is it that you have no respect for piano skills which is why you think we should do this for free--and yet you want pianists to pay you money for this music

.... ??? wow, really?

why can't you just play it yourself...

I looked through some of the music and it didn't really look interesting or impressive. Instead of hitting your head against a wall, how about you just play it and record it yourself? The music isn't even difficult so I don't see why you aren't doing it.

People did express interest in being paid.
But then you said you weren't paying in cash, and that you were giving someone one free year on a website, after which the service costs $250 a year.
If you're paying cash, I can see more people getting on this.

I'd certainly do it for a maintained website, absolutely I really need one, but only a loon would trust someone over the internet, especially if they consider their time valuable.

If someone is seriously prepred to record 30 pieces then Ok I will waiver the annual fees.  So free website forever then.  You will be able to see your website progress through a link so you will know it is being built.

There is no hurry for me Schumaniac, you just do whatever you got to do first I can wait, and thanks for the support. 
Also just for the record if there are any of you that want to record a few pieces only its ok too, I will give anyone that records 5 pieces their own page on my website with a link to your you-tube site and anything you want on your page that can be as long as you like, and no fees forever. I will have a 'pianists' section. 
My music is not in the virtuosso league but it doesnt mean I cant write a technically exciting piece, I just havent had the need to do so. I dont compose music to impress or dazzle.
