Looking for someone to record a cello track for my composition

Post by SpotlightKid »

Do you play the ceo and are willing and able to record a cello traxk on a composition of mine?

I can provide sheet music, a backing track and an Ardour project for recording.

The piece is roughly in the style of an Irish ballad and the other instruments are piano, guitar, bass, mandolin and a low whistle. The cello part isn't very technically demanding (around 114 bpm, no faster than eighth notes, about 90 bars, the lowest note is C# on the lowest string).

The piece was written by me some months ago and adapted to be performed at a funeral recently by adding a cello voice. Here is a short excerpt from a demo recording (using a simple soundfont cello sample):

I can provide link to all the files via private message on request.

The intention is to release the finished piece under a Creative Commons CC-by-sa license and it will be available for download for free from my server and probably SoundCloud. If I (additionally) put it on my BandCamp and sell it for "1€ or more", I'll happily distribute an appropriate share of the revenue for the track (my current total earnings from BC are a whopping 2.54 €).

Send me an PM if you're interested or feel free to ask questions here.

Hi Tobias,

the cello track still needs to be recorded, yes, so thank you for your offer. I considered using a commercial service but I haven't gotten around to re-recording the backing track yet (I want to make it a bit faster and replace the acoustic guitars and mandolin with better versions).

I'll try whether you can receive a PM... ... yes, PM sent.
