...and this is what practicing Thaxted did to poor old Herman ( my fiddle ) ....  (OK officer, I admit it - it was me - I lost my temper...)  

If I'm not careful, I might be arrested for AVH - may not be an international abbreviation - but folks in the UK will get it....yes? ABH???  LOL )

Any ideas on a good free MP4 recording option for PCor iphone?  I've never done this and looking to hear what others use please :)

UPDATE - Nevermind I found a free converter on the apple site.  Now to get busy recording if I'm not too late!

Record it any way you want and if you in the end can't find a way to convert it, I will do it for you. :)

@Fiddlerman - You'll be getting one from mesmile

Since it looks like there may be a lot of Violin 1's, I'll do V3. And time permitting, another part. Love this song! It's so beautiful, and pleasant to play.

And my apologies for not being around much these past few months. Life is just getting back to normal after my husband had to have a complete knee replacement. 

@BillyG, LOL.....poor Herman. That gave me a much needed laugh, thank you!

Sounds great Feathers. Happy to hear that things are getting back to normal for you. A healthy knee is extremely useful. I got a bakers cyst in one of my knees and it put me out for a good while. I hope that never happens again.
Look forward to your parts. :)
Thanks

@Fiddlerman, Ouch about the baker's cyst. That's def. cringe worthy! Glad you were able to get all healed and past that trauma.

Also, I forgot to ask earlier.....On Violin 3, lines 2 and 5, is that portato?

Thankssmile

Very good Feathers :)

For those of you who don't know what Portato is, it's not the same as potato. LOL

It simply means that you detach the notes only slightly. Almost connect but not quite. Kind of a cross between legato and separate. Literally I think it means "to carry". I just want the two notes pulsating even if you don't separate them.

No, this is not my submission ( ! ).  But there's something a bit disturbing about it - it seems to be in Bb...  (that was my strange attempt at humor)

[ For those who are wondering about how come you can "hear sound in the vacuum which is space" - you cannot !   The "sound" was recorded not as audio, but from the electromagnetic spectrum - you've heard of FM radio, "Medium Wave" radio, "long-wave" radio - these "sounds" were recorded using an "Extremely Low Frequency" radio receiver on-board the craft  - using a radio antenna, not a microphone - and tuned to receive RADIO frequencies in the range 20 to 20,000 Hz- frequencies which we normally associate with human hearing - although my own aging eardrums give up at about 12kHz nowadays...]

Very strange indeed. And incredible that they can actually achieve such a recording. :)

@Fiddlerman, Thank you for the Portato confirmation. 

Hopefully it'll end up sounding properly played by the time I get it recorded....lol!

 

@coolpinkone, Hi Toni - Always good to see you too! And the hubby is doing great thank you. He actually healed faster then they expected.

 

@BillyG, Cool video! Parts of that almost sound like someone playing a saw in the wind.
