[DOMENICA] Mon violon (Il mio #violino) è una raccolta di partiture libere e gratuite (e di registrazioni) soprattutto di danze popolari e brani per violino: monviolon.org/en/
Nell'audio in allegato "Allons voir" un esempio di cercle circassien. I contenuti del sito sono distribuiti con licenza #ArtLibre; è presente anche su #Mastodon: @monviolon Cosa volete di più? 😀 #DanzePopolari #Musica #balli @maupao @goofy @lealternative @filippodb @funkcastmusicwhale

Because today, as a mandolin teacher, I had a new student from Ukraine who plays the 4-string , I am documenting about this instrument. I found this page that gives a slightly longer overview than Wikipedia:
fretexpert.com/the-domra-instr

Monviolon is now partially translated into .
monviolon.org/et/
The home page is correct (translated by a native speaker). The rest is more random for the moment.
By the way, do anyone knows any Estonian speakers on the fediverse?
I haven't found an active account yet (I'll have to convert some Estonians IRL…)

I've decided to try something weird. I've recently decided to go ahead and record an album myself. And so I made a quick website to share the things I've recorded so far in their unfinished state as a way of letting people in on progress as it happens. What do y'all think?

Teaser: I'm working on the ultimate version of "The Bear Dance" because we're still here to have fun. Be patient, it will take time.

If you want to support me to release more free repertoire and make music videos more often: liberapay.com/MonViolon/donate

As a reminder, the last "big" video (at least long to make) was exode.me/w/muyT4HVJHkhcVTfsqen

Kisses 😗

I knew the sound from a CD we have at home. Now I'm discovering the image and it's not bad either 😆
Piimanaiste polka ("Milkwoman's polka" I think) by Svjata Vatra, an Estonian-Ukrainian band.

I started to collect the discographic references:
monviolon.org/en/rechercher?q=
but it's late, I'll write the score tomorrow…

I will now publish my recordings with their sources (files before mixing) here:

prod.monviolon.org/en/home.htm

A new from for our collection: Saarema valss (or Valss Saaremaalt = Waltz from Saaremaa). Free and reusable (libre!) score here: monviolon.org/en/bibliotheque/

#looptober day 25

Thinking about: melody. the opening to Appalachian spring. transformation.

Breathy alto in the morning
Confident tenor in the afternoon
Grounded bass in the evening
Misunderstood were-bot by midnight

Qualche giorno fa ho ascoltato i bellissimi campioni messi a disposizione da @monviolon e il brano "Un jour m'y prend l'envie" mi ha subito colpito. Ho campionato il mio Michelsonne, manipolato un po' di cose e ho catturato questa registrazione. Mica si sente che mi piace Yann Tiersen?

Interesting fact of the day: The term "patching" software originates from the fact that you would literally patch holes in early hole punch input in order to fix an issue. Attached is a picture with such patches on it from the Harvard Mark I computer.

Please, don't panic: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy has been published on October 12, 1979.

Exactly 42 years ago 🙊
