"Snowing on Christmas Eve Night" - Improv Violin

Tonight as a break from studying for finals I recorded a small six-piece ensemble improv using my violin (so you hear six violin parts, but I just used my one instrument). It's a little Christmasy, and kind of reminds me of a sentimental view on snow and winter, but either way it was just a fun, relaxing way to play violin on this young winter night.

I also thought of an idea for a video I may record and upload one day next week after finals are over... play for half and hour straight, no stops! Well, maybe not that long, but we'll see... But anyways, what it is, I put up my violin, hit record, and just start playing, and anything that comes into my head I just pour down on my violin. So we'll see what happens, but look for that entry. :)

I'll talk about this more tomorrow, but in orchestra we will be playing my "King of the Aliens Symphony"! I edited the full orchestra so all the parts could be heard for just strings - so it'll be a ton of fun! I can't wait! :)

Have a violin-filled night! (I dunno...)
