    I didn't want to flood the audition room with this video (I think audition room is not meant for videos...)

    I haven't recorded anything for a while, but today I wanted to record one of the caprices from the Op. 76 I've been playing. and... yeah, yeah... we do wear T-shirts on Christmas in Brazil! :D

    most people from PS who I talk to is from north hemisphere, so it sounds strange to have Christmas on Summer.

    not too different from that. hehe
    I think I should care more about my appearance when I make videos. I've noticed that yellow is a good color to wear (it makes contrast!).

    at least I took a shower before the last take, when I was recharging the batterie of the camera! :lol:

    That's so funny - I can't believe you took those long breaks. I may try that next time I make a video. Except it's hard for me because I have to make sure my hair is exactly the same, because you know, it's all about the hair, baby! :lol:

    btw - if you want contrast, then wear red, blue, or black. Yellow is not really that contrasting.

    If I wear black, I'll be camouflaged into the piano! :lol:

    The background in which you record is fairly light in color, so you should wear colors that contrast with that. Dark colors or jewel-toned colors show up the best in light rooms. The only way wearing black will make you appear camouflaged is if you film yourself from the back - like placing the camera behind you, facing the middle of your back. That would be a little weird, anyway. Also if you think about it, male concert pianists almost always wear black suits or tuxedos.

    that makes sense (though I don't know what "jewel-toned colors" mean :D )
    my camera is very bad also.

    about the tuxedos... I'm against this kind of clothes for classical music performers. if I were a professional musician, I'd try to wear in a more casual way, but also without shocking the public. these "too formal" clothes make classical music even more elitist (what is wrong, in my opinion).

    Jewel-toned colors are like ruby red, sapphire blue, emerald green. Colors like these will show up very nicely in your setting.

    Regarding tuxedos: I attend many Sunday afternoon piano concerts by mainstream performers like Kissin, Hamelin, Schiff, Pollini, etc. and mostly these men do not wear tuxedos but just a rather plain dark suit, so it's slightly more casual. Saturday night performances usually call for the more formal dress like tuxedo - and after all, since I am spending tons of money to attend those concerts, it's nice to see that the performer bothers to dress up!

    I think I have the red and the green one! I'll try them one day! thanks!

    I understand your point. but we should pay for their music, and not the way they appear. there are lots of rich families which attend concerts in formal clothes here in Brazil. I think it has nothing to do with the spontaneity of the music itself. I usually go to the concert in jeans! :D
    as I'm a kind of musician myself, I don't care about it. going to the concert hall should be a spontaneous thing, not a "big event". and I'd like classical music to be more popular also.

    but you're a woman. I girl friend of mine always cared a lot about clothing when going to a concert hall. maybe it's a woman thing. hehe
