Ciao a tutti!
Ora pubblicherò registrazioni di musica tradizionale (acustica) con le loro fonti, cioè la canzone + le tracce audio di ogni strumento.
Quindi tutto è pronto per essere dirottato e remixato!
È qui: (guardate i "Danses de couple" per capire).
Licenze libere
Fatemi sapere se vi divertite con questo!

The Racoon, music from Russia. Why not.
"Pêche aux moules / Пешомуль" is not a realy free/libre album but free/gratis: -by-nc-sa

Complete butts! #MastoArt

If anyone would like to buy a digital print of this ($5 USD, a high res image file for you to download and print), let me know, and I'll scan it :)


There's 86 images in there so far - frames, borders, dividers, random ornamentation, illustrated letters.

It's free, but you can also leave a tip ^.^

I'll add more as I trace more things :)

I created a bunch of ornamention exercises for traditional ornaments in mainly Balkan folk music. Releasing them for free because I consider myself a Balkan traditional folk ambassador.
Fingerings are for piano accordion, but the exercises can be played on any instrument, basically.

I've been playing this waltz for 25 years without getting tired of it. Here is Astrid Waltz updated for our collection.
Listen to this beautiful version by Tamatakia, 1996:

New in the : the transcription of Babeth's waltz. Easy to play on a diatonic button accordion: you need only 3 fingers for the first part and 4 for the second part. Only one row.

Since we now have 6 videos for Harglla's folkband, I made a dedicated channel :
And this image made of an estonian accordion and the colors of the traditional local skirt.

I'm planing to make a list of songs i could play for an acoustic solo perfomrance (violin+voice), without the help of a loop pedal. To help me think about it, I make quick records.
First one:

There is two new pieces by Piano Dom posted on MonViolon for the collection :
I particularly like the scottische "L'automne se fout de l'été".

I didn't know that was bought by the Muse Group in April 2021 (owners of ).
New privacy policy allowed Audacity to collect, for Muse Group, "data necessary for law enforcement, litigation and authorities' requests" (?!!)
I'm not sure I understand what this means in practice (it's an offline application).

@admin Yuhuu! Stereodon funziona di nuovo! Grazie ai responsabili!

There is an almost systematic problem on "cheap" factory violins (here one of the violins of the music school where I teach): black painted white wooden pegs in which the holes for the strings are badly placed and unusable. If you buy this type of bad instrument (why not after all, it works) you will certainly have to re-drill the pegs. Axis perpendicular to the original hole so as not to weaken the peg too much.

Ieri ho riparato qualcosa sul MonViolon: la ricerca di una melodia scrivendo il nome delle note in italiano (francese, spagnolo, ecc.: do, re, mi) funziona di nuovo. Divertiti con quello!

Collaborative music recording 💽 It exists (internet is awesome) we can use the SourceML software for this kind of project.
SourceML is based on the framework Symfony (php+mysql).
An interesting example of use here 🤩
SourceML's homepage (in french):
I think I will use it!
Thanks to @openmastering and @Nomys_Tempar to have made me discover it.

Today's thought: it will take some time because I'm busy with other activities but I'll release this recording (when finished: violin/accordion duet) and the following ones under or license (as you wish) *with uncompressed sources*: separate tracks, without corrections. This will facilitate reuse (adding instruments, ...)
Does this kind of project already exist? Free audio album with source files?
That seems to be the best choice for me anyway.
