Hello everybody:

Some time ago, our ocarina community was met with the loss of one of our own, Karin. A few ideas had been tossed about with how we might be best able to honour her, and the idea of an ocarina collab is the best idea that was agreed on.

Whether you knew Karin or not, this collab is open for everybody who would like to participate.

The song of choice is, "O Danny Boy" (also known as "Londonderry Air") in the key of C major. A traditional Irish song, it was one of Karin's favourites.

Deadline (EXTENDED): Friday, 30 June, at 12:00pm EST (New York/Indiana); the final piece will be posted on YouTube between 5-11 July.
Difficulty: Easy. You can use a twelve-hole alto C ocarina.
*If you have an ocarina in a different pitch and want to participate, then please contact me. :)
What do I need? I've created a backtrack and sheet music for your benefit. All you need is a decent camera, maybe a microphone, and a place to play where you can be heard!
What about tabs? The tabs are separate from the sheet music. Sadly, I'm not as advanced as docjazz4. x_X

For the sheet music, please click on the attached [Danny_Boy_C.pdf] to view and play.
For the tabs, please click here to view tabs for different ocarina models.
For the backtrack, please click here to go to SoundCloud.
*There are two tracks - "Danny Boy C (with notes)" for you to listen, and "Danny Boy C Backtrack (without notes)" for you to listen to whilst recording your video to submit.

What's the best way to record?
~ If you have headphones, then I recommend plugging them into the device that you're playing the backtrack from. docjazz4 frequently puts the headphone wire behind his head; I recommend you do that. :)
~ Set up your camera in a place that's suitable for recording, preferably a quiet place.
~ To submit your video, upload it to YouTube or Facebook (send a link if you do). Or, post your video here. (if you can).

Let me know if you have any questions! :)

I just started with TON a few months ago and didn't get to know her but I look forward to working in this to show appreciation for someone so loved in this community!

For this, can it be an ocarina other than alto C, like bass C so an octave lower than written?

Yes, you can use a Bass C. :)
Do you need the melody written in the bass clef to help? :)

Excellent idea.
I'm not sure if I be ready for the end of May, but I'll try. I'll have to do that on my Focalink plastic because it's my only 12 holes ocarina, also I'm not used to the subholes.

Edit: stupid question: on the recorded track, you don't expect to have the backtrack, just the ocarina.

No I don't need bass clef since I can just read the given sheet music (I actually can't read bass clef that quickly since I only play instruments that read treble)

Same goes for me! I haven't "seriously" recorded anything up to now, so I'm a bit unsure. Also, I'd use 11 hole (?) bass sweet potato.
I'm afraid I didn't really get if the backtrack is for listening or should the recording be ocarina + backtrack?

Best regards,
Carina
