PYCO Orchestra String Seating Auditions
Instructions for Easy Recording & Uploading
- Record each excerpt separately, preferably on a smartphone or tablet.* Make sure the device is placed back far enough that it will show your face, the entire fingerboard of your instrument, and your bow arm.
- From your phone/tablet, open this page (pyco.org/pyco-orchestra-string-seating-auditions) and click on the excerpt link below that you want to upload. It will ask you to select a file. Go to where you saved your excerpt on your phone/tablet and select that video recording.
- Upload the file. No need to rename your file. Just make sure you are uploading your excerpt to the correct link and to the correct instrument group (for example, do not upload a Violin 1 excerpt by clicking on a Violin 2 link).
*We prefer smartphones because they compress the file which makes the upload process faster and more reliable. HD video or recording on special recording equipment is unnecessary. It is not critical for your audio quality or for the outcome of your audition. It will only clog our servers, make your upload time longer, and possibly cause your upload to not complete.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any upload questions or problems.
