Still would like to participate but have no idea how to contribute via MP3, etc. Sorry, but I am not as computer-savvy as most of you. Also, most of the music I play is not in the public domain, so that's perhaps another difficulty.

If we can sort it all out, perhaps then...maybe by the time of the second release!!! \:D

BTW, have a look at my piano photos soon. They're uploaded to a photo site, and I'm trying to find a way to let you all see them.

Excellent thread .... Great Idea ..... I'd buy a CD with all my favorite PW Artists on it ...... Definitely ..... Perhaps on this CD though, *the types* of pianos can be cited ;\) ;\) (Just a little pet-peeve of mine)

But Back to the Sweatshirts ..... & T-shirts !!! ..... I want one of each ..... Please start selling these !!

Joe,

Most if not all of the composers you play are alive today, I'm sure you can contact them. Aside from the bigger names, such as Ligeti, Boulez, etc. you could probably get written permission from most. They all want as much exposure as possible anyway.

I found Corigliano to be most accomodating with us selling our CD with his piece in it.

There are several options to hooking up sound to your computer, you can record extenally and then pass it to you computer via a sound card (most have one) or you can hook up a cheap mic to you computer to record directly. The biggest pain is making sure you have the right connectors from one thing to the other but they sell adapters for most connectors.

You can also RENT equipment for a day if you don't have the right stuff. Something i forgot to put in my post on the Recording advice...

Wow! Amazing idea!

I'm not good enough to submit a recording, unfortunately.

I could pose topless for the CD cover if that would help. No charge! ;\)

Hmmnn, not a bad idea (the calendar, not the CD cover, although the cover does sound interesting).

Years ago I got permission from the folks who publish "Piano" the book by David Crombie.
I used the pictures from the book for our FREE screensaver ( http://www.pianoworld.com/screensaver.htm ).

I've actually thought of approaching them again to ask if we could produce a Calendar using the pictures (and maybe a few of our own).

I'm not exactly sure you guys understand the type of calendar I was talking about. \:D My mom has one in her basement. It's the Stoney Stratford Lawn Bowling Calendar. A bunch of members (mostly over 50) in their birthdays suits with strategically placed bowling balls... It's an absolute hoot. We could do a similar one with metronomes, piano lamps and sheet music. Oh, and of course, pianos.


KIDDING.

Actually, Jodi, that would be quite a hoot!

Imagine the gallons of body make-up it would require! ;\)

on top of the piano also works - strategically placed piano shawl...or some music...

just being helpful...like to encourage creative ideas...

If someone worked a tuning hammer into the picture, I bet there would be a lot of sales to guild members.
