Right then ... I think it's time for some fun.
I composed and recorded this after listening to an evening of modern violin works. Some sounded quite strange, and I really couldn't work out what was going on. So, I thought i'd compose my own little hearing violin concerto LOL. Here it is : (orginally recorded on audio only - before the days of affordable home video). Enjoy!
I...er.. don't hate me but honestly I totally disliked it. But then, not everyone likes everything, I'm just not into er... experimental violin? Dunno how it's called. Way too dissonant for my tastes hehee I'm happy that some are into that kind of music though! Life would be boring if everyone was liking the same things.

Well, some people were taking it too seriously, so I thought, well, if they want to be serious, so be it.
So, here is a serious description of my masterpiece (with a note to the editor) LOL :
"The music has an elegaic quality, with subtle, but repetitive motifs concordant with the most dissonant possibilities in the use of the 13-tone scale. Yes, the thirteen tone system is what is employed here, in this important work. The 13th tone is a microtone between the 5th and 7th interval, which produces an ephemeral sound, out-of-tune yet tuneful in its own inimitable way.
The forceful dynamics required in the execution of this piece [Igor, in the previous review, can we edit out the "knocking seven shades of shit out the instrument" part and put in some other phrase to convey urgent, yet delicate forcefulness - cheers] only add to its subtlety and will make it rank among the truly great modern masterpieces of its time."
Sounds to me like dramatic backing music to an old black and white horror film. You know the ones where because they were silent movies the facial expressions of the white faced actresses were soooo over the top
Those were the time's a fiddle player stood in front of the projection screen and played music for the movie. He played music that was appropriate to each scene on the screen. Probably never played the same music for more than one viewing at a time, the next show he played different music. The music wasn't on sheet.
I liked it Mr. Jim, You seem to always come up with something great and different.
