One of my friends from school, Ben Powell, has recently shared the following music video, Rise.
“My new video ‘RISE’ is the result of my work with LA based composer Thomas Parisch. Thomas and I composed ‘RISE’ together by layering the sounds of both my electric and acoustic violins. Everything you hear was made and played on my violins apart from the percussion. Upon completion of the track, we felt it was worthy of a music video and this is the result!”
I particularly like the ephemeral qualities of Rise, and the evocative sounds of the violin case zip and rosining the bow at the start. I look forward to hearing more in the future.
