The Proof of Practice Series

A series of pieces is envisioned where the following criteria are met:

  • A soloist or chamber ensemble

  • The initial music presented to the soloist/chamber ensemble is technically challenging to the extent that it would be purposefully impossible to sight read.

    • This necessitates the need for significant practice/rehearsal.

  • Performers must record all rehearsals/personal practice.

  • All of these recordings are given to the composer.

  • The composer organizes the recordings into an "accompaniment".

    • The composer will use all of the recordings

      • Signal processing is not desired on the recording​, excepting

        • Balance adjustments​

        • Slight equalization

        • Subtle (natural) reverb

  • The composer provides a recording that will be played along with the original score (with some possible modification in response to the resultant recording) which will now be ready to performed as written.
