Hi guys! 

 

I just sent in all the 4 violin parts by wetransfer to Pierre - it was so much fun. I am essentially an Indian violinist, so it was fun to play something different for a change. I rewrote everything in the Indian notation system, and played it in the tuning I use for Indian music. I also used my transparent electric violin for the visual appeal! I stumbled upon this about a month ago when I was looking for a new bow (A very good quality bow I had, broke recently). But I'm super stoked about this event and can't wait for the final video and the results of the draw!! Thank you, Fiddlerman, for making this so much fun. I'm so glad I opened that email. It's a new thing I learnt to do during lockdown 😀 I hope Indian residents are also considered for the lucky draw!

 

Cheers

Nandini

  

Oh I am interested in what you mean by Indian music.  Is it Native American or the other kind?  I live in Alaska where we have a large population of Alaskan Natives who play fiddle and have fiddle fests.  So much fun.  Anyways, welcome to the forum.  Can't wait to see that fiddle.  thumbs-up

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

That's the one I've been practising, though I don't know if I'll get it to a reasonable standard in time. The first 4 bars are my nemesis - I really have trouble with the 3rd finger slurring from g to c.

It looks like a lot of people are planning to do multiple parts, so don't worry about balance.

I'm going to at least play the Viola I part, which looks like it's the same as the Violin I part but transposed down an octave in some places. If I have the time/energy to set up all the click tracks and play through them all (I still have a nagging shoulder injury that slows down everything in my life right now), I'll record other viola parts.

It always seems to work out. Usually the first part is the most played but I also have plenty of submissions by the end of the project.

Hi Georganne! India has two forms of Classical Music - North Indian Classical (Hindustani) and South Indian Classical (Carnatic). Both forms are extremely rich, complex and take years of practice to master. Unlike Western Classical music, Indian Classical music is totally based on improvisation. Traditionally, our violin hold is also very different (we sit cross-legged and play, which makes it easier for some left hand techniques). Here is my YouTube performance of a song in Raga Janasammohini (Ragas are different modes and the define the basic structures). We also have extremely complex rhythmic patterns (not in the above link, but generally) I also work in fusion (i.e. presenting classical music in different forms). You may relate more to my fusion tracks:

Whew! Finally submitted something for a group project!

All four viola parts. Sight-reading all four parts, and a second take of Viola I, was just about the limit of my pain-free endurance on viola right now and is probably all the playing I'll do before the weekend. (Chronic left shoulder injury is the reason I haven't done any group projects before now.)

Awesome @AndrewH !  thumbs-up

I know you have had shoulder issues for a while now - many of us struggle somewhat with our own imposed/enforced/unavoidable physical limitations - but - well done on the 4 parts! drummer

For me, well, so far I've submitted but one ( I did all 15 - 5 each of violin, viola, cello for the previous project ) - but I have other projects on the go right now - and well, I sort of think - "Yeah, I'll get that done this evening" - and two days later it's still not right....  LOLOL

Thanks again for your submissions !  Most welcome !

I managed to submit Vn 3 & 4. I practised for the V3 part, and once I'd done it thought I'd try V4 while everything was set up. I set the camera away while I ran through it the first time (well, you never know!) and it was actually OK, so I just left it at that. Not my best ever work though! 🙁

I practised Vn 1 & 2, but the slurring between strings on the same finger still wasn't right and I didn't have time to sort it out before the deadline. Anyway, I'm sure Pierre will get plenty Vn 1s, so no worries.

Work has me really stressed out so I felt really challenged with this tune. Last time, I was actually able to submit a few parts but this time only VLA 4. Well on a good note, the tutorial videos really helped me pull my timing together. Still, a long way to go, but that was my main focus. Did what I could with the "costume", but not sure if I have my shows mixed up.. lol.. Can't wait for the finished project.

I cannot wait to hear what you all came up with. I bowed out of this one. Not bowed, bowed as in bow wow. It could have been a pun the other way, though. 😂

@Ripton I'm with you. How will it sound? Will Bill be wearing a Fiddlerman hat? All these questions. Definitely a Christmas eve feeling. I bet Fiddlerman feels like the elves working like mad to finish.

@nandinishankar - re the "badges" - just PM Pierre and ask (he needs to be reminded LOL @admin) - you should claim 2 of them - a "Group Project" and a "Video" badge for the "Saffron Nirvana - Ganesh Stuti in Raga Janasammohini" YT video !

From the project page: "The deadline for your submissions has been extended to May 20th ".

 

So a little while to wait yet. Amazing Grace Mk II has just gone up, so I guess Pierre's been working on that.
