Re: More stuff to listen to

Thanks so much, Mr Jayrope, for listening and for your comments. I'm really glad you enjoyed it!

Regarding the miking, I didn't actually use a mic. It was all done using a pickup attached to the bridge. I have tried recording with mics, but never had much success with it, except in a particularly nice acoustic space, which I rarely have access to these days. In fact, it's not really a "proper" cello anyway, it's Knilling Portacello from the 1950's, which has a small rectangular body. The nature of the instrument, combined with my very unconventional (some would say non-existent) playing technique, at least give a fairly recognisable sound, so I have decided to try and make a virtue of it. I doubt it will ever sound very pretty.

Anyway, I have ben encouraged by the reactions to Scrapes, so yes, I will be doing more.

Thanks again, and I hope all is well in Berlin.

Mr. Moyes,
i enjoy your complex-coloured cello space very much.
On an intermediate technical note it is great to hear cycles mostly not appearing as loops (although i find the miking could be improved to get your instrument more body, maybe. Not needed to improve the sheer music, jthough.). However, i enjoy your complex-coloured cello space very much. Food for thought. Thank you for complex brightening up a Berlin spring morning and: More of this, please.
