It’s a funny thing. I always thought I’d be doing this in IntFiction. But we’ve definitely strayed apart - my release of my public collection didn’t ellicit a single reply. I’ve posted in French, Italian and Spanish communities, I’ve posted here and in RAIF, and IntFiction is the only place where there was no reply at all. The Spanish were particularly quick and enthusiastic.
Anyway! No worries, because I have this little corner of the community!
I’ve always thought that whenever I recorded my first performance worth listening to, one that I feel happy with, I’d like to share it first with this community. It has nothing to do with IF, of course - but here is where I feel I’m among friends, even never having met any of you, even if I sometimes rub someone the wrong way.
Recorded live, sung to a pre-recorded backing track in the foyer of a hotel I sing regularly at. An opera-flavoured rendition of Brel’s “Amsterdam”. The version turned out to be a tad too low and too slow for my needs, but people liked it. It’s not like I was even getting paid. Still, I’m speeding it up and raising it half a tone next time.
EDIT - Google Drive Music Player link. Not sure how well it works: http://www.driveplayer.com/#fileIds=0B4qjYuo7MJfXQ0JqMVlpR3VJbnc&userId=104962695144214602457
Also, “Recondita Armonia” is an aria from Tosca (sung the same day, also with a pre-recorded playback). I’m not pleased with the B-flat at the end - starts off practically an A, then manages to climb up to B-flat - but all things considered it’s my best yet. So I’m also sharing.

You don’t have to comment, but if you do have something to say, go right ahead. I promise you won’t find any fault I’m not already aware of myself. Anyway, the way I talk about some games some times, I’m due some harsh words.
Thanks for putting up with me.
EDIT - Really, I don’t what the point is of GoogleDrive having an embedded sound player if it doesn’t stream the sound; you have to actually download and open if your media player.
