Benjamin Tubb on the Finale forum brought to my attention this organization that supports the construction and composition of music for an octet of 8 violins. Four of the violins are instruments as we know them; standard violin, viola, cello and string bass. As a matter of applying science to technology, they have introduced four additional sizes, two being higher pitched than the standard violin, one pitched between the viola and cello and one between the string bass and cello. Funny thing is that they have renamed all the instruments, even the string bass, cello and viola.
