FIRST, THE BASICS….
Please try not to disrupt the rehearsal by following these five simple rules…
You must remain on MUTE unless asked to unmute
Listen to the session through HEADPHONES ( any type)
If you have a QUESTION for Brian or the Zoom host ( usually Olivia), please wave your hand until noticed or type your query in ‘Chat’ and it will get picked up
If you have a persistent TECHNICAL PROBLEM , it often resolves of you select Leave the Meeting and then re -enter
Have your second device – usually a mobile phone- ready to take LIVE RECORDINGS during the session when asked to do so
These sessions are open to all members of IDC. If you signed up long ago and never made it to one of our events, it could be a perfect way to get involved? First and foremost, please help things to run smoothly by going through both the Welcome Video and the Quickstart Guidance. Click HERE
You will receive a new Zoom main rehearsal room link by email on the morning of each rehearsal (if necessary, check your spam folder). The same link will be posted on the WhatsApp IDC News group. Please join Zoom by 19.50 if possible so that we can start on time with everybody connected and ready to sing. You will need to be able to watch, be visible to others on Zoom, listen on headphones and possibly make recordings of yourself during this session.

How to make and send your personal vocal line recording Recording your Voice for an IDC Mix
IDC Video Project
So, much to our horror, not only are we asked to submit our line recordings, but Neil and Olivia would also like us to submit a Selfie and a short Video Clip lasting just 30-60 seconds. Only the video will be used and the clips will be arranged together with the final, composite audio recording.
