March 10, 2013 at 4:57 PMThis morning from 9:55am to 10:55am, I went for a wonderful walk. There was still snow, but it was melting. After listening to a part of Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony, I turned on Vivaldi's "Spring", and then I turned off the music altogether to listen to the symphony the birds made. (I think I talked about some of this yesterday.) When I got back, I devoted the rest of the morning creating a short violin improv video, using sounds from the symphony of spring (and summer, I suppose). Enjoy this video! If it bodes well, I may do a nighttime one for summer. Note that the violin is not supposed to have a melody; it's just sound.
And as (hopefully) good as this is, it's nothing to stepping outside on a spring morning, possibly to climb a tree or just walk around, listening to the birds play their concert.
