    Ben Fatto, Achille! A great job with all the talented mandolinists! I didn't think I would enjoy a virtual--zoomlike--performance...but this was excellent! Grazie, Sheri

    Very cool, Peter! Many thanks.
    I hope those fine folks can soon be playing as an ensemble again in person.

    Video still doesn't work. How is anyone else seeing it?

    Not a browser issue, as it happens on both computer (local Ethernet) *and* phone (testing using phone-carrier "data" from many miles away, *not* the same IP connection as the computer so it's obviously not a local modem issue or IP blocking problem or whatever else blah blah).

    Screenshots of the non-functional video - click each pic enough times to make it big enough to see:

    3. Oddly, the "Playback ID" number is different on the phone compared to the computer, but even manually copy/pasting either of those ID's into a new YouTube window still doesn't work - screenshot:

    It's probably a fine performance, but no way to know when can't see the video...

    Very cool! Somehow the joy of the music comes through even though the players are in different places and at different times. That says a lot about the music itself, the players, and the conductor. I am curious-- did people record their parts watching the conductor's video, or just listening to a track? I used to teach conducting and I wonder about the "feel" of doing it to a camera and recorded track.

    Hi, Jim! We had sheet music, an audio track, written instructions from Achille, our conductor, but no video. We each recorded our individual parts and uploaded them to a shared location. Then the audio and video were put together. We had been working on this together, in-person last year. Another selection from this opera is in the works. Stay tuned!

    Thank you Peter;We're doing a similar thing with Oregon MO, waiting for Mike Tognetti to sync it all up--he does tech for us and CMSA. A bunch of us mandocello players are fooling around with track-sharing and hope to do a virtual open mic performance in November. I remember thinking "hhmmmm... playing with a recording?" But after weeks of musical solitude it actually felt quite good to play along with real people I actually knew. It's different from a music-minus-one or just playing along with any recording. But the addition of video makes it even more fun, although I must have recorded my part a hundred times before I was willing to send it in. I still wonder if this processd would work with a video of a conductor rather than just an audio track. It sure looks good in your video.
    This all feels like classic science fiction stories I read when I was a kid.... but I still want to know: WHERE'S MY JET-PACK??
