August 22, 2013 at 5:45 PMHello everyone! it's been years since my last post here.. well, I only had one posted blog, actually :P
So please let me introduce myself again
I'm Riz, from Indonesia.
I'm an amateurish self-taught violin player.. yup I'm still kinda being doubtful to call myself a "violinist" haha.. I wrote about that on my first post
It's very sad that I must bury deeply my dream of becoming professional musician.
well, but I'm not supposed to be sad today because it's Claude Debussy birthday!
um, I just want to share my little recording, my never-noticed hardwork & struggle as a self-taught.. hope you like it..
hope you had a beau soir tonight :)
Okay, I've likely offended you in a half-dozen ways, so I'll stop now. But that was absolutely lovely. Gorgeous music, gorgeous playing. And a lovely tribute to Claude Debussy, whose music I adore.
Yuppp! I knew that musicians (especially violinists) would find this out :D I admit that I recorded the audio and video separately to get a better audio quality as i don't have good recording equipments.. I recorded the audio like hundreds of times to get the good one.. It's very hard for me especially the double strings octave parts.. I'm struggling like hell to get best sound I could make.. Plus I'm not a good camera-face, I also recorded the video several time and the worst is the real video of the real audio is looking BAD, I make sort of very very awful facial expressions, like i wanna kill myself, crying to hit the right notes (I know the final result is not even looking better lol) and I want to have nice one.. as good as i can haha..
In conclusion, it's still me, doing both audio and the video.. If someone asked me to play it again, I'd love to do it, but with some li'l squeaky parts hehehe.. (okay, I hope all these could be counted as a good excuse lol)
Yes.. I have been a self-taught for over 9 years.. I'm addicted to music, to violin, but no one really cares..yeah I know I should take care of myself of course lol..
