Yesterday, while driving home and spending some time (actually lots of time) in the inevitable traffic jam I came up with a brilliant idea. Please bear with me, if this has been suggested:
I would love to have string sections and solo insturments where you can switch between the same note to be played on every available string. Example:
Violins 1 Keyswitches:
C0 = G-string
D0 = A-string
This would enable the composer to finally implement color considerations into his "performance"!
Background babble: I always loved how wonderfully expressive real recorded Violin passages could sound (For example Piazollas "Tanzago", "Tango Ballet" and others) when the players skilfully switch the strings during their performance. I NEVER heard something like that in orchestral mockups!
Maybe the ability to switch between strings could help in adding yet more depth, heart and emotion to the performance?
What do you think about this idea?
