Returning Home and What’s Next?! | Banff Diaries 7

My artist residency at The Banff Centre has finally come to an end, and as I try to readjust to real life I reflect on my last days that I spent there, what happened afterwards, and what is next for my project on Sonia Eckhardt-Gramatté! There is a lot of exciting stuff still to come, so stay tuned to my blog and my YouTube channel for lots more video-diaries and updates from me about what I’m up to.

It’s been an amazing experience, putting this project together, diving into Sonia’s world and her music and sharing it all with the world, and I feel deeply honoured and humbled to have had this opportunity. If I can leave you with anything, it would be the encouragement to grab hold of your idea for a creative project of your own and MAKE IT HAPPEN – where there’s a will, there’s a way 🙂

Check out my last video, where I take you into my recording process with me and show you how a recording gets made!

Making A Recording! | Banff Diaries 6

I made a recording!! I’m thrilled to announce that a brand new recording of Sonia Eckhardt-Gramatté’s 10 Solo Violin Caprices is finally going to exist, and I can’t wait to share it with the world.  In this video, I take you inside the recording process and give you a glimpse of how it’s done, what goes on, the equipment used and the dynamics between me and the recording engineer team.  It was such a brilliant and fun experience and I can’t wait to share it with you! Enjoy!

Check out my last video, where I get chatty about what’s been going on at The Banff Centre, try out a run through of the Caprices for the first time and work with AMAZING musician Caroline Shaw

Fan Girl Updates | Banff Diaries 5

A lot happened this week! I played a run-through of the Caprices, together with the slideshow, and experienced what that was like for the first time.  I also played to my colleagues in the ‘Sharing Circle’, had a one-to-one session with the BRILLIANT Caroline Shaw and even struck up the courage to play a set at the bar! Certainly was a work and music packed week! I’m now gearing up for the big performance tomorrow night and preparing for recording next week.  Get ready for a chatty vlog!

Check out my last video, where I get a little lost in the mountains and talk in more detail about my plans for the slideshow
