I’ve posted a new video of my version of the Irish fiddle tune Drowsy Maggie: http://youtu.be/6z2UI1o4gkY. It’s a well-known piece, even used at one point in the movie Titanic.
This entire piece is a single pass-through, created live only on an acoustic violin. The violin parts are performed live, recorded and played back (similar to looping), but I’ve programmed the foot pedals to give me complete control over each track, up to 16 simultaneously. This enables me to create and improvise musical form and orchestration, which I find more satisfying than the typical looping.
My wife Melissa did the camera work, with a colorful setup with the lights. I edited the video. I hope you like it!
