anyway, i think this is pretty dam good, considering he probably came up with the arrangement himself. it had a lot of character and he utilized lots of unique sounds a string instrument can make to bring it as close to the originals as possible. i think he`s great.
yeah, so his posture needed some work, but so what if he didn`t look very put together? he plays well
and woohoo, he needs to get a new bow. whats the big deal? its his money, let him ruin a bow for the sake of makin music the way he wants to.
if that doesnt work for you, fine. don`t listen to him. simple as that
=) I love that song.
lol exactly what I was gonna say. I wonder how he saw past all that hair o.o?
I sure hope you get on here and read these posts>>>>
To the Gal who wants to cut his hair!!!! This is short compared to what it used to be!!!!!
BIG HUGZZZZZZZ ~ U Know Who in SW Florida!!!!<3
All four pieces are on a CD, however there are other pieces on there by Robert W. Smith as well.
The CD is called "The Divine Comedy - Symphonic Band Works of Robert W. Smith"
The pieces are all performed by the George Mason University Wind Ensemble.
This was the only CD I could find with all four on there. It has some other pieces worth listening to as well, so it would be worth it, in my opinion at least.
I hope you enjoy the pieces when you hear them.
Im so glad that there are no 14 year olds commenting: `IDOTS! ONE OF THOSE WERNTY 80`S, SMOOTH CRIMINAL WAS MADE LIKE 5 YEAHRS AGO!!111!!!1!"
this is merely speculation, of course
The "Divine Comedy" is a series of books about a dream Dante had involving the rings of Hell and the acsension to heaven. There are 3 other pieces in the music.
"Purgatorio", "The Ascension", and "Paradiso" follow it. I played all 4 pieces last year in my highschool`s Symphonic band.
And yes.. I am a very intense classical musician
That comment comes from a guy who has tried everything he could to get laid, and has yet to succeed. Poor bastard.
As for the guy in the video....bravo my friend, bravo
I love Apocalyptica. My uncle told me about the band not too long ago and sent me a DVD of them to check out. It was awesome!
JAXLEY, personally... I think that spiccato is a rather difficult technique. (I`m not sure if you know the term but that`s the bouncing of the bow.) I know that for myself especially, but other violinists as well, it takes a lot of practice to have that kind of control over the bow.
but yah, he was awesome, kinda reminds me of apocalyptica but not quite as good.
Some do. I play violin in my highschool`s orchestra, and our concerts have included "Sweet Dreams are Made of This," a medly of songs from various horror movies, the themes to both Pirates of the Carribean movies and King Kong, a few songs by Mannheim Steamroller, and "The Best of Greenday."
The guy at the end kinda ruined it.
But I`m amused that so many people had the same thought I did. "DO TAKE ON ME"
i was about to turn off it, but then it got good (cos it started bad).
However it`s not too hard to `bounce` the bow on the violin like that.
Also, does he smack his head into the mic toward the end?
Should have played "Take on Me" by Ah Ha. That would have been even better.
