Field Recordings #2 – Open Rehearsal

Wednesday, August 5th, 2009

Here are a couple of excerpts of a recording that I did of pianist Ingrid Fliter during an open rehearsal yesterday at the Pritzker Pavilion in Millennium Park. Fliter was rehearsing for a Grant Park performance of Schuman’s Piano Concerto in A Minor.

Open Rehearsal
– A very short piece with applause.

Open Rehearsal #2
– A longer piece.

It should be noted that these files are lower quality MP3’s so they don’t take forever to load.

Field Recordings #1 – 16 inch softball

Tuesday, August 4th, 2009

Here are a few excerpts from audio recordings that I did last night of a 16 inch softball game at the park across the street from our apartment:

Play Ball
Notice how you can hear the EL train in the background.

Batter Up!
A base hit!

3 Outs
A quick 1-2-3 inning. A pop out. And then a double play.

Home Run
The first home run I’ve seen at the park. The ball went over the fence and into the street which upset a little dog out for a walk.
