BareBones Orchestra Recordings

Oct 15 - Nov 30

A note from Venus de Mars:

I have just added a STREAMABLE folder. So you may simply listen to the individual tracks per year (or download individual tracks)…use each year’s PDF booklet to follow along. www.venusdemars.com/barebones. My 5 years as BareBones Music Director: 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018. So either download the full year’s archive .zip or simply listen via the STREAMABLE folder. My 2020 BareBones contribution. BareBones puppets.

Note: Available free through November 30th. Afterwards, they will be given to BareBones to determine how to share them in the future.

My Barebones Orchestra member involvement credits list.

NOTE: This is a partial list, and I will update as I am able to collect up all past Barebones Orchestra involvements between the years 2015 and 2019 (The years I have been the Barebones Music Director)

The .zip files labeled with the year are the mp3 tracks in order and a .pdf score..the ones I created, used to conduct, and handed to all orchestra members (Forgive my bad spelling on them please).

Download and decompress and load the .mps files into whatever audio player you use and enjoy. I recorded multiple nights per year with my computer while conducting..all 5 years… some nights worked better than others…I chose the best recordings per year in my opinion either because of content or because of technological decisions.

I will be uploading each year over the next days till all 5 years are up, so check back..ALL five years will be available by Halloween if not before…and ONLY AVAILABLE through October 2020.

For our 2020 Barebones, I have made these archives all free for this month only!

THANK you all SO much for all these years of Barebones!! I very much miss this year’s performance and my work with a live orchestra and everyone.

Please stay safe.
We’ll see you all on the other side of this Covid virus madness!
