Hello lovely Patrons! I’m currently working on some violin and viola tracks today. I don’t usually play the viola, but it’s something I’m planning to do more of to add more depth to my string parts.
I have my Grandfather’s violin, which is the top instrument in the photo, and I have strung it up as a viola. I love this instrument and I used to learn on it when I was a teenager. This tuning means that instead of playing the high E string, a lower C string is added. The music is also written in a different clef which adds to the fun!
I played the viola in ‘Scenes from a Cornish Childhood’, and this creates a full string quartet sound. This is an exciting addition to my composing work and I’m very enthusiastic about the results that will follow!
My track ‘For Edna’ is being mixed this weekend now that the menfolk can hear properly again! My Seasonal Postcards are going in production very soon too! Huge thanks and lots of love to you all for your kindness and support! xxx
