#day161 - melody and contrapuntal work for the Dream Page again. This section has lots of different challenges for the performer - the cross rhythms, melodic hierarchy/balance, and cleanliness. Not the cleanest take for me in this clip (I realized once listening back that it’s probably my LH that’s buzzing in the replacements), but most of this video is balance work between the outer and inner voices. The main melody is floating above in the RH thumb, while the LH 4th has a descending line, moving in contrary motion to the other melody. I’ve been working on finding the right balance between these two voices and the inner voices, without forcing any sound out and having a bell-like release of sound.
Side note - since we have limited instruments available to us right now due to mechanical issues, I’ve been using this old 23! We replaced the broken strings and tuned her up so that I at least have a concert grand to use when someone else uses the un-broken Salzedo. Although, knock on wood, the neck on this harp is extremely warped and has a lot of cracks along the knee block and soundboard...

Carola Krebs, cello

This is the first of a "Musicians and Their Counterparts" double-exposure series. This technique mimics that of "double-exposed" film, which happens when a roll of film passes through a camera twice instead of once.
Over thirteen and 3.3gb of experimenting later, Carola (@carola_cellist) and I settled on this pairing of her and her cello! This composite was difficult to execute, but I am so happy with the way the final turned out! I'm really looking forward to seeing where this series leads.

Everyone likes these days when a gig ticks all the boxes:
✅ Great orchestra @cgsinfonia
✅ Favourite repertoire (Fauré and Bach)
✅ Less than an hour drive
✅ Space in the nearby car park (free)
✅ Step-free access to the church
✅ Early rehearsal finish
✅ Good Indian food within 3 min walk
✅ Sunny day

If only the church was slightly warmer... but fortunately I also got a:
✅ spot by the radiator, and at the same time
✅ the best selfie location 😂

Harps have been known since antiquity in Asia, Africa and Europe, dating back at least as early as 3500 BC. The instrument had great popularity in Europe during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, where it evolved into a wide range of variants with new technologies, and was disseminated to Europe's colonies, finding particular popularity in Latin America.
