We recorders are a renegade group at U3A Port Phillip. We meet off campus at the Middle Park Bowling Club, we Zoom on a private Zoom site and finally we are back together live.
Zoom and recorder playing don’t go together. Not only is there the timing problem that prohibits most musical work, the program hates the sound of the recorder and tries to block it out as background noise, no matter how much you work on the sound settings.
So here we are back together live at Gasworks Park on the 12th of November, in a sheltered space with walls giving us some sound feedback.
Playing recorders outside can be problematical, as wind can steal the sound away. But we did pretty well, and given that we had not played together since February, we sounded pretty good.
Not ready for concerts yet, but that will come.
