As you can see the video quality is still pretty crappy for reasons I can't figure out. Obviously I'm doing something wrong with the mixdown or the compression. To begin with, I probably shouldn't have combined the webcam recording with the rest. I was considerably more successful with the audio quality. Unfortunately, the microphone wouldn't speak to the camera, so I had to record the video and the audio separately and try to match them later, which is why the audio in some places seem out of synch. Sorry about that. I have a totally awesome microphone though and I'm very pleased with the audio. If you're not very careful with the microphone settings you can basically hear the neighbors fart in the recording.
If I find the time I'll do some more recordings and put a beat under this. I only noticed very belatedly that I accidentally mixed up G major with D major. So the piece is more, eh, interesting as it was supposed to be and I've violated the sacred law of amateurs #1: Learn the rules before you break them. Yes, it is clearly therapeutic to every once in a while engage in a project one doesn't know a thing about.
