The deadline is December 23rd, 2021

How does it work?

  • Please use the audio files first, if necessary, to practice your part. These files can be found here on this page.

  • Watch the conducting video a few times to become familiar with it. This can also be found here on this page.

 

A few important notes:

  • Prepare the recording device in a room that is quiet and well lit. Close all windows and doors to avoid external noise. Sit in such a way that the strongest light source in the room is directed at you and not behind you.

  • Rotate the capture device so that the video records in landscape (horizontal) and NOT in portrait orientation.

  • Avoid too much free space over your head.

  • Set your recording device to 1080px at 30fps. (720px at 30fps is also fine).

  • Make a short test recording to make sure that the picture and sound are recorded correctly.

  • Look straight into the camera most of the time and make sure your face is visible. Always stay within the margins of the video.

  • After the last note you should look straight into the camera for at least another 10 seconds. Then stop recording.

  • Make sure that the picture and sound have been recorded correctly. If errors occurred, record it again and send us the best version.

  • Please also make sure that the volume on your headset is not too loud, otherwise you will hear it in your video.

  • The microphone should not be too close to the mouth, otherwise you will hear breathing sounds.

 

ATTENTION:

In the conducting video I will count 1,2,3,4,5,6, 7, 8 loudly in advance and clap on 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Please clap loud and clear on 5, 6, 7 and 8!

This serves to align the individual audio tracks and is extremely important!

We accept the following formats: mp4, mov, wav, mp3

 

Recording on PC/Laptop:

  • You will need a headset with a microphone.

  • Use the link to the conducting video, open it here on this page or on YouTube.

  • Then open your recording program in a second window.

  • Please record your video in landscape mode.

  • Click Record and then play the YouTube video and follow the instructions.

 

Recording on your smartphone or tablet:

  • For this you need a recording device (smartphone or tablet) to record the video and another player to watch the conducting video with headphones.

  • Place the recording device on a stable surface and at eye level.

  • Turn on your recording device.

  • Then start the player with headphones connected and start singing to the conducting video.

 

If a video recording is not possible for you, but you still want to participate in this project, you can also send an audio recording together with a picture of yourself.

Uploading and submitting the video:

  • Rename the file so that it contains the following:
    voice, name, choir, city, country
    For example:
    Sopran_JeannineHoward_unusmundus_Reutte_Österreich.mp4

  • Send the final product to unusmundus@gmx.at via Google Drive, OneDrive, DropBox or WeTransfer.
    PLEASE DO NOT SEND DIRECTLY, as the file will be too large.

  •  Alternatively, it can also be sent via WhatsApp or Telegram to
    +43 664 193 6634.
    Please, state singing voice, name, choir, city and country.

  • Send us your recording by the 23rd of December 2021.

  • You will receive a confirmation e-mail/message as soon as we have received the file.
    Let us know if you have not received a confirmation within 2 days.
