Live Recordings

I printed out an application form today to submit some music to the 2006 New Music Festival at Illinois State University, and among the items requested, they want you to send a recording of the piece. They won't accept a MIDI version, only a live version. Now, where on earth am I going to get a recording of the piece. I don't work at the university or in a college situation where I have easy access to an orchestra or band or "fill-in-your-group-here" ensemble. How do composers do this? Do you pay for people to perform your music?

That's absurd. What's the logic behind that? That if somebody wrote something good, they were just *bound* to have had it performed, already?
