Violin Music Video Cover – Backwards by Matthias

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.

Singing with the Men’s Chorus

I know it has been forever since I last posted anything of note, but hopefully I can make up for it with exciting new posts over the next few weeks. There is something extremely powerful about the music of the human voice. Though I never had any formal training in singing, my exposure to church choir along with studying the violin since I was six resulted gave me confidence in any sort of vocal endeavors.

This past weekend, I was able to participate in a Stake Conference, singing the 1st tenor part in the Men’s Chorus for an intermediate hymn and the closing song. While these are raw recordings, I really enjoyed the a cappella introduction to God Be With You ‘Til We Meet Again. Great music with inspirational speakers made for a good¬†¬†weekend overall. Enjoy!

Massive Epic Trance, Anyone?

A State of Trance recently released their 550th episode on March 7, 2012 from Moscow, Russia, and I must say that this is one epic piece of work. Almost one and half hours of nonstop music. My favorite part has got to be the piece by W&W at 24:47 in the track, so if you listen to any of it, listen to those four minutes there!

The Versatile Violin

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.
