EDIT: OK I think I'm good for now, thanks guys!!
I posted this on tumblr, so I'll just paste it here:
Does anyone following me play violin and want to help me out?
I've started a "band" with a few friends of mine and between the three of us we can more or less get the arrangements we want- however a huge part we're missing is violin.
I really want it in our songs, but we don't know any violinists and I'm not good enough to lay down some nice sounding tracks. We're working on getting three tracks recorded now, so we can bring something to our shows once we have them. Even if you just did one song, it'd help a lot.
So I was thinking, "You know, why don't I just ask the internet to help me out?" In this magical modern world, distance isn't such a problem, as long as you have a microphone and e-mail. The mic doesn't even need to be amazing- I figure lo-fi violin played on a real violin is better than synthesized hi-fi violin.
So I'm looking for someone who'd like to work with us and record some tracks. I'll write some parts and such so you wont have to take that burden- I mean, I wont bore everyone else with the details now. But it's not a hard thing to make music over the internet.
If you're interested drop me a note or a comment, or send me an e-mail: ashwara(at)10km(dot)org
I'll draw you a picture for your efforts or something!
