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 !!

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...
