Imagine a violinist accompanied by a piano, or a piano duet. This would be great for a virtual

recital. They are doing it at Peabody Conservatory this summer for their virtual recital.

These are recordings that are "married together", so everyone has to have the same established tempo. I guess you could call them collaborative recordings? I could make an upright bass line for one of your jazz pieces...?
