Just Looking Around SmileyIt's presumptuous of me to assume a song is classified as "Pop" when I hear a mix or influence of multiple music styles.  Like most things I enjoy, I wish I knew the correct terminology so to be able to discuss what I think... and not sound stupid! 

Cool Dude Smiley Smiley  ...I wanna be like this 'wicked fiddler' when I grow up! 

It's DARK & he's got the swing - vibrato, double stops, slides, improv, then POPS that harmonic on the E string! 

 

Warning - couple explicit words at the end of the lyrics.

Been trying to make the rounds on some of the earlier pieces I learned, so I'm back trying to polish up "Witches Wrath" to sound closer to the Bridge City Sinners fiddler. 

But, FINALLY, I've solved the mystery of a pretty wicked bit of CELLO music I've been curious about! 

Been dying to know what the name is, who the cellist is and who composed the tune played in the credits this 3rd season of the "Evil" TV series! 

"The Count" by Audiomachine!!!  I still can't find out who played the Cello or sheet music - and probably never will! 

 

 

...think Edgar & I have our next Halloween tune! 🤗

Is Grieg considered public domain?  how does that work now?   he or heirs need royalities.  😉😁

cool track!.  it sounds very foreboding and in a way reminds me of hall of mountain king.  sounds like theyve added some distortion or fuzz effect to cello too which gives an extra ummph.. but a wild guess on my part.

@ABitRusty -

Why?  Anything published before 1923 is public domain.  You might want to know there are statutory limitations to exclusive rights, there's Fair Use, or if you plan to record & sell an album, then you would be interested in Compulsory License.  The copyrights on all my artwork are good for 70 years after my death. 😊

Btw, we'll have to have cellists weigh in on the sound - just might be natural for a cello! 

...might need octave strings on viola.

It's 1927 now. Now that 2019 has passed, the date is advancing again. The copyright term is 95 years after publication for works first published before 1978.

Thanks for bringing me back down to Earth. 😒

Definitely off topic for the thread, but I can ruin Hall of the Mountain King even more: how about Peer Gynt reimagined as a casino heist?

 

(Synthesized orchestra sounds, not an actual recording. But Untitled Virtual Ensemble recorded it and it's in post-production -- the guy who arranged it is a member. I didn't play on that recording, though, because it was in the middle of thesis crunch time for me.)

@AndrewH - 

🤣 That's GREAT! 

Sure takes musical possibilities down another rabbit hole! 

Very enjoyable - thank you!

 

🤔... "The Count" also has me thinking about a darker twist on some of Prokofiev's work.

I think we could all have some fun playing some wickedly weird music. 

I want Kevin to make me one of these Nightmare Machines to play!  

...Santa, you listening?

Actually, between violin & violin, I think I am getting really good at making a lot of these sounds already.

Evenings are cooling off & October is right around the corner! 

Found some wicked fiddling to try from Peter Ostroushko!

...I'm getting VERY EXCITED!!! 

 

"The Wicked Sisters"

I'm so excited! 

Back up in the OP I shared the "Witches' Wrath" by the the Bridge City Sinners. 

I was, and still am, mesmerized by the fiddler, but it took me a while to find his name is Lucas Biespiel (bio).   I couldn't find much on him, or even playing the fiddle - until recently.  Guess it's because this classically-trained-Portland-Oregon-Fiddler also sings, composes, plays guitar and I think piano, too! 

His stage name is Lightnin' Luke

 

Lukas Biespiel - "Poison Angel Girl"

Luke, Clyde McGee (aka. Clyde & the Milltailers) & Michael Sinner (aka."King Strang"), all part of the Bridge City Sinners - playing "Which Side Are You On?"

Luke joins Mathew Bracken for "Banjo Blues"

LOOK AT HOW FLAT & TALL THAT BRIDGE IS! 

...like it's a new blank/never shaped!

Pirates, anyone?  Luke playing "Dungeon Song" with the Bridge City Sinners!

Happy Halloween Girl SmileyWOO HOO! 

Found my Halloween tune picks for this year!

OMG!  Got myCrazy Eyes Smiley Smileyon the crazy runs in "The Wicked Sisters" (post 16) & "The Count" (post 2) would be worth working on even if just to practice a lot of switching between bowing & pizzicato (which I haven't done since last Xmas)!

I tried the basic melody of "Witches' Wraith" (OP) last year, then abandoned it - maybe I'll be ready to work on it more this year. 

041256e299be7e9681aa6832a1019c83.jpgRegret I got tied up last Fall & didn't really finish anything for Halloween, but it may be similar this year - if I keep biting off more than I can chew. 

...it just tastes SO GOOD! 

 

Adding this wicked fiddling from an old thread - worth taking a closer look! 

"Marionettes Dance" by Claude Chalhoub - think it's VERY fitting for Halloween!

So, this thread presents some music with more advanced techniques - my latest 'elephant in the room': playing fast runs of notes. 

This past year I've spent a good amount of time on playing faster... usually faster across strings.  Been pretty happy with my progress, except for faster playing ascending and descending on 1 string. 

I found Augustin Hadelich has 2 great tips.

😶 ... at least I'm workin' on it.
