Wandjina (Horizon Lines CD)

another improvisation by Rupert Guenther

Story

Wandjina (for solo violin) is from the Horizon Lines CD, which was recorded live in concert by 3MBS FM in Melbourne. Wandjina is an important figure in the Australian Aboriginal mythology, the giver and taker of life. This track is a live-to-air version I played at the radio station broadcast studio. It is completely improvised. For the broadcast I borrowed 2 newly made violins from violin maker Paul Davies to use on different tunes. On this track I used his copy of a Testore violin.
