    Unique GPO demo with String Bendings by ChristianB.

    Here\'s a fascinating demo by christianb using GPO in a unique way.

    http://www.garritan.com/mp3/cb-Harbinger.mp3

    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.

    Excellent work Christian!

    Very cool sounds CB!

    Would you be willing to post a MIDI file? I\'d love to see your programming for this...

    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).

    The demo is extremely well done. Congrats!

    Cool! I wish you woulda put some tablas in there. Add a sitar and you\'ve got the title theme for one of those Indian musical/dramas.

    Brilliant Christian! One of the most inventive and original pieces there has been here.

    A couple of times I almost thought there was someone singing for split seconds!.......perhaps its the drink!
