Because. I should at least. Update. Once in a while. orz
Rehearsal was fun today. We did a lot of Khachaturian, and Tchaikov. and all that good stuff. The only regret I have is that we didn't get to Mozart. >: Next time, maybe. It was hilarious how every time the conductor praised a section our second bassist would go 'hrm hrm' with his bass.
It made me think about how the voice works, and whether or not one can replicate vocal sounds on instruments. With the strings, however, we're missing the bits and pieces of the lips and the exhaling that comes with making words. For the winds, they're missing that string vibration. Vocal chords and mouth, right? I wonder if it's possible to make an instrument where you blow into it... and strings vibrate.
Something that lets the mute 'speak' with the same components of the voice that everyone else uses.
In other news, this thread
made me so happy. Echo + pretty dresses = win, I swear. I ended up spending the rest of the week trying to draw Echo and trying to draw dresses and trying to put them together.( In which there is Echo and dresses, often at the same time, and a miserable rant on Vincent, that bastard.Collapse )
