Here’s a Submotion Orchestra cover (excellent band – check out their début album). This is a wonderful tune featuring beautiful strings on the original. I made my best attempt at sub-bass on a violin – you’ll need more than your laptop speakers to hear it! I’m away from real-life for the next four weeks, so this is my last offering for awhile. Sayonara!
Yes, I know it’s not June. I was in the studio today with my good friend Clem Rooney recording some electronic jazz covers (coming soon). I had the great privilege of playing on a Violectra (seen below) for the session, kindly on loan to me by Moseley Violins. Violectras are quite simply, in my opinion, the finest electric violins in the world, each lovingly hand-made and personalised.
The final video from the Surrey University December 2011 session is now online! June is an amazing tune by pianist Peter James.
