”Ni får fria händer. Jag litar på er. Ni kan ju det där.” Ibland behövs det en extra vända med fundering innan det blir sådär bra som det bara måste bli. ”Ni gör det så bra. Jag tänker mig en cello i silver, för hon som tar studenten har spelat cello i alla år, och hon kommer få en riktig cello i present, så ett halsband med en cello skulle vara perfekt!” Vi började, precis som vem som helst skulle göra, med bilden av en cello. Men att göra en cello som halsband är inte bara fantasilöst, det blir också en fiol när man börjat anpassa den för att fungera som smycke. Vi övergav alltså ganska fort idén om att göra hela instrumentet. Silhuetten av cellon samma sak. Nästa steg var att bryta ned cellon i dess beståndsdelar, och de mest uppenbara delarna var cellons ”kropp”, stråken, strängarna och ”överdelen” där stämskruvarna sitter. Men sedan fanns det en del till, den del som får ljudet att färdas från strängarna, in i cellon. ”Bridge” heter det på engelska, men ”stall”, kallar vi det. Stallet är obegripligt viktigt. Med hjälp av utformningen på stallet får ljudet i cellon olika karaktär, och utan stallet, inget ljud. Vi hade hittat vår design. Vi tog formen av ett riktigt stall, sågade ut det i silverplåt, gjorde urtag för strängar, och ett annorlunda cellosmycke hade sett dagens ljus. Studenten blev jätteglad, och vi är stolta över resultatet.

Have I mentioned recently how awesome wigs are Being able to put this baby on in two minutes instead of spending an hour on my hair for a gig is pretty much the best thing ever - thanks @thewigcottage! (Also have I mentioned recently how much I love makeup companies that don’t harm animals I’m obsessed with this @wetnwildbeauty Photo Finish foundation that’s basically a dupe for Lancôme!)
Today I had a lesson with my future professor from college. My main problem: TENSION. Also these practice rooms are super nice, the only problem is they make me sound good when I’m probably not😝

Thank you Insight Timer!
😁 Ever wonder what "intonation" means Do you want to appear knowledgeable, intellectual and well versed in musical subjects amongst your classy friends Or maybe you're looking to score big on Jeopardy should "musical terms" be introduced in the speed round Well friends, that's not why I made this video and I would advise against giving it credence, though likes are appreciated based upon the minute of utter confusion it offers the world 😂😬 If nothing else @jamesdsatterfield gives an oscar worthy performance as himself ... and I do hope he offers more sage wisdom to the violin community in the future 😂 Thanks for this James. I hope you like what I came up with! Okay okay ... for those of you who are downhearted about not being in a position to win the double jeopardy speed round, "Intonation" is one of the most fearsome words to a fretless string player because it is referring to being in tune. Wish it were as easy as getting a pedicure, but sadly, nail polish has not, to my knowledge, ever been helpful on a fingerboard (no, please do not do that ... I'm sure the luthiers have seen it, and hope never to see it again) Y'all go have a great day and say hello when you find yourself in toe nation! ➥ Follow : @violin_universe to get more amazing videos

⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ So how was my weekend ⠀⠀
As you might have guessed: I did not only go to Luxemburg for holiday reasons 🤓. I am very fortunate that I was invited to play 4 sets at the anniversary party of @hasekaminofen in Trier, who are manufacturing beautiful stoves. I mixed cello and voice with loop station and it worked so well with all the beautiful atmosphere (even the fire in the background, which I was not aware of until I saw the pictures 🙈😅), people went quiet and listened to me. It wasn’t really a concert, but it is so wonderful to play my music to people, who have never heard my music and see how they connect with what I do ❤️ ⠀⠀
But working late into the night is also exhausting, even if I love my job. I had spent the night in the hotel and normally I would have taken my things and would have driven home. But this is what I always did. I told myself I must grab those few opportunities, where I am in another city, for a mini vacation. As a freelance musician you are reluctant to say no to jobs, even if they conflict with your free time. Also most shows/concert/weddings take place when other people have holidays or weekends. So I am very happy that I grabbed the chance while I was so close to Luxemburg to go there, even if I felt really tired. And it was totally worth it!! Because you’ll never forget those short trips and it had been around 20 years since I last had been to Luxemburg. Actually the last time I had been there, I had played in a youth orchestra together with musicians from Luxemburg, Portugal and Germany (and I remember only having learned those bad words in Portuguese...🙈). ⠀⠀
So this was my full, exhausting but also very satisfying weekend. And I am already on my way home from the next concert with La Finesse.😅 And now how was your weekend Did you enjoy the sun Did you have concerts ⠀
