From the rehearsal with my duo essens:1 (electric violin and clarinet) and the choir in Morup, Sweden with composer/maestro Stefan Klaverdal.
Here’s the old version of Hans Zimmer’s Why So Serious, which then segues into Politik by Coldplay, by my duo essens:1 for electric violin and clarinet. This is semi-live-looped, with all sounds coming from our own instruments (i.e. no synths were harmed in the making of this video!). Filmed by Tobias Broström at a concert in Sweden last year.
We took Coldplay off the end for our new version, but added CPE Bach at the front. And it’s all live now too.
I was also working a bit this evening on a new arrangement of Björk’s All is Full of Love by Stefan Klaverdal, which he has done for my electric violin and clarinet duo essens:1. We’ll perform it in May together with a choir in Morup, Sweden.
This is the violin part only, with looping and some beautiful delay effects that Stefan has done.
It was cold at the essens:1 gig tonight in Mölle, Sweden. Per had to take care of his (clarinet) baby beforehand. But the audience warmed us up—they were lovely! See www.essens1.com for more about our electric clarinet, violin and laptop band!
My duo for electric violin, electric clarinet and laptops will be playing at the Edinburgh Fringe soon. The show’s called "From Mozart to Muse". So, here’s our Mozart!
