I just improvised again this night and wanted to share what came out. Usually I’m such a perfectionist and have to get every detail right, with the effect that I don’t share a lot of stuff that I do.

Here I recorded the first voice and tried to fit the 2nd voice while listening to the 1st one. When it didn’t work out at all I cut the 2nd voice, but apart from that I didn’t do any editing. Which feels great! I probably should take the parts that I really liked and write something that fits really well together, add other voices,.. but I don’t want to.

I hope you can enjoy the sometimes chaotic melodies. I played on my modern (normal) violin with gut strings. I got it from my grandmother and it was perhaps made by her grand uncle.

In the beginning there was a voice. ~Was it a voice or an echo of yesteryear?~ Was this that first voice that sometimes descends from the misty mountains in the morning? ... Am Anfang war eine Stimme...

Off the bat i really like the violin playing and it's calmness like almost walking back in time to some old eastern European Jewish village market.

Thank you for the comments! It encourages me to continue exploring and focus a bit less on the classical goal of recreating and interpreting old masterpieces.

It feels like you're putting a piece of yourself into the violin while playing it. That's really tricky to do for those of us who program synthesizers.
