Violin Tier Performance

Based on the tro and erhu playing, each string of the violin
is used as the basis for roughly similar improvisations
related to a particular melody sequence. The strings are
played alone in the order 3/2/1/4, around GcgC, something
like that. I started this project as soon as I awoke; the
first quarter is out of tune and awkward, the other three
are increasingly better. On the tro and erhu, it's quite
possible to improvise on a single string, and that formed
the basis for the Tier. Eventually I shall perform live,
moving from string to string, never returning, never moving
across strings or visiting older neighborhoods. In the
meantime this is a taste of what's possible and as usual
and of course I quite like it. In that I'm probably alone.
