It's painful to hear a recording of yourself.
We finished recording my audition video and S is now compressing the files before putting them on my flash drive. His accompaniment sounds very nice (DMA in piano performance, after all) but I'm not enjoying hearing myself sing. I was struggling, especially with the Purcell, and I can hear every glitch, every wobbly pitch, every place where my technique is, shall we say, lacking. I know you're always your own worst critic; I just hope the auditioners are kinder to me than I am to myself.
