Circus of the Mind - live accordion, clarinet, with virtual instruments

Hi all,

I'm so excited to share a project which was seven years in the making: Circus of the Mind. I wrote some music for my accordion and clarinet duo, Acclarion, to perform alongside a string quartet, a piano trio, and a guitar and marimba duo. Now, with funding from the Canada Council for the Arts, we were able to bring the project full-circle, with a complete multimedia show that will debut on Friday at http://www.youtube.com/acclarion

The program features our live accordion and clarinet performances alongside virtual instruments (VSL for most of the strings, classical guitar, and marimba, Embertone's Joshua Bell violin, and Pianoteq's Steinway)

For now, if you're interested, here's the trailer:
Musically curious VI members, I hope you'll check it out. Thanks so much!

Thanks so much for the kind words, Thomas! You are among the brave and the few that would entertain this "less than mainstream" concert :)

Cheers!

So much is going on here! Thank you both and greetings to your wife.

As I thought for some parts too many notes for my primitive heart... this went away when I listened to the Oasis part - really wonderful, I don't mind some Kitsch / simple melodies (don't brand it as something bad) sometimes when it is good, has celtic touches and great adventurous shimmering all the time.

Whoo-boy. It's weird, but I'm a fan. What a beautiful clarinet tone.

Yayyyyyyy. I love this place, and really appreciate the gold I find on the ground.

Great work, you guys!

Thanks, Stringtree. You made Rebecca's day complimenting her clarinet tone :)

Tbh, I didn't expect a single comment, so having reached two VI members is quite the pleasant surprise!

Take care,
Dave
