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

The Craft of Poetry | Banff Diaries 3

I got to hear a live poetry reading for the first time! The experience of hearing writers read their own material, often about very personal stories or political feelings, made me pretty emotional, so I’m glad I talked to the camera about it straight after, to document that feeling.  In this video I also sum up how my project is going at the end of my first week at The Banff Centre; the challenges I am facing as well as the things I am loving. Hope you enjoy!

Check out my last video, where I talked about some really important questions, and especially about forgotten women artists

Shedding Light on Female Artists | Banff Diaries 2

In this video I talk about the questions that have been on my mind since being at the Banff Centre; about staying motivated to make music and art in a world full of monsters like Trump and, particularly, about all of the women artists that have been forgotten or were never known, simply because they were women. I am hoping, with my project, to shed some light on this issue, and to give at least one of these women a voice.

Check out my last video, where I arrived at the beautiful Banff Centre and began my artist residency here!

Salzburg Concert Vlog

 

Here is my video diary of my trip to Salzburg to perform 6 of Sonia Eckhardt-Gramatté’s 10 Solo Violin Caprices in a concert for my classmates and teacher. I am getting to know this music better and better and this was a valuable experience, to hear their reactions to the music as well as experience for myself what it was like to perform it.
