Christian describes this as an \"experiment\" to simulate string slidings reminiscent of Oriental and Indian music. Christian uses pitch bend to decorate melody lines with skillfully performed bendings. These bends and slide pitches gives the melody an Eastern touch.
This was done in Logic on a Mac. The following GPO instrumentation was used: cellos lush, cellos short bows, cellos tremolo, cellos whole trills, cello2 solo, cello1 pitz, violin 2 strad solo & violin 1 sust short.
Re: Unique GPO demo with String Bendings by ChristianB.
I\'m really impressed, very strong ethnic sound... kinda reminds me of the fiddle/violin part in the theme to \"Firefly\" the western/sci-fi TV series created by Joss Wheadon (of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Fame).
