NESI 2016 Concert Recordings

Click on the picture above to get the video, then,
after the play arrow appears, click again to see Winnie hoof it!

...and be sure to sweep up the horse apples afterwards....Pictures are there and picture titles but the recordings are NOT all processed and linked yet!!!!

A short clip of the usual ragged, joyously uncoordinated & cacophonous processional             MP3  WAV

For each performer's recording, there is a .WAV and a .MP3 version.
Basically, WAV recordings are fairly good CD quality, but big, while MP3 recordings are smaller and lower fidelity, compressed for emails and posting for online playing.

Notes, comments and mutterings from Stewart who likes to pretend that he's a sound engineer

Recording problems this year.
There's always problems. Meanwhile Bob Beimers, a Broadway stage foreman who's surely seen much worse disasters than this, helped me with his recorder on the the stage.  Thank YOU, Bob!
** My apologies to the following people that I missed getting a shot of (and so had to crib from last year or have no pic at all): Ken Sweeney, also, David Colpitts  for whom I have no picture at all

All audio is presented here in .WAVs sampled at 44.1kHz/16bit & .MP3 sampled at 192kbps; click on the appropriate hot link to play or download.
For those that don't know, MP3s download/play a lot faster than .WAVs, but the .WAVs (CD Quality here) are better sound fidelity & quality
As for the image thumbnails of the performers, you can get to the full-sized version (stored on Flickr) of any of them, just click on the image.
