So I’ve been working on this during my vacation time from work. It’s been good to finally play the violin again for a fun project like this. Matthias is a relatively popular Youtuber who created this music video for an online reality TV show called Internet Icon (Season 2). This was the final challenge to determine the winner of the show, and I was really impressed by what an amazing song and video he was able to create in such a short amount of time. It inspired me to push the boundaries of where I’ve gone before in music, singing, and video.
If any of you are avid YouTube browsers, you may have already heard of Lindsey Stirling. If you haven’t, just watch one of her most popular songs below and you’ll know why I like her style so much:

In light of my last post, it saddens me to think how little the art world considers of gaming. While I freely admit a large portion of gaming is sensationalized, I also believe the art community overly generalizes the medium and fails to recognize incredible work in gaming. Much can be said about science fiction and fantasy genres in the literary world. Authors like J.R.R. Tolkien and Orson Scott Card took advantage of these genres to create profound literary works, much like gaming does today.
