    O'Reilly Digital Media Podcast about Expression features Strad/Gofriller

    David Battino or O'Reilly Digital Media has done an excellent podcast episode called "Express Yourself" and features the Stradivari Violin and Gofriller Cello as examples of expressive instruments.

    David writes: "Expression is the soul of music. In this episode of Digital Media Insider, we listen to the techniques players use to coax emotion out of electronic instruments and software."

    In his podcast, Battino covers various controllers and how they can be used to get expression from your digital instrument. A particular focus in on wind controllers. He also show examples of how swells, pitch bends and phrasing can be used to achieve expression.

And there also is a demo of Fabio playing the Stradivari violin. The podcast also demonstrates the Synful Orchestra and the Karma KARMA algorithmic keyboard. He also touches on artificial intelligence in music. And regarding the theme music for the podcast, David writes: "The piano is from the Garritan Personal Orchestra, which I discovered when we interviewed Gary Garritan"

    There is so much going on with expression in music and we are just seeing the tip on the iceberg.

    Very interesting podcast! Your products stole the show. It was exciting to hear how expressive digital music is getting! It's a great time to be a composer. I am so jealous of the composers that will be born in 50 years though.

    I was curious as to what a podcast is, but never got around to asking, so this certainly puts that to rest. Itunes browser needs a bookmarking feature.
    Nice podcast!
