    Justin Grounds, an international musician living in Ireland stops in to visit his Violin maker Paul Davies from Spur Violins in Melbourne Australia. We organised a special performance right in the Spur Violin workshop. It seemed really apt for him to perform this piece right in the space where his instrument was made. Shot on 4 different cameras. All Canon. 5D mark2, 7D, 60D, 550D all L series lenses. Complete with emotive cutaways of Paul making violins whilst Justin experiments with looping tools to layer up a thick base of stunning violin meanderings.

      Justin Grounds, an international musician living in Ireland stops in to visit his Violin maker Paul Davies from Spur Violins in Melbourne Australia. A conversation about a new 5 string violin as well as a standard violin strung with octave strings for cello like depth in notes. Justin's approach to his playing is unique in his use of new looping technology. He uses Ableton Live on his laptop and records his lines on the fly to create beautiful soundscapes. Paul Davies has been crafting violins for years now and has broken new ground with his very unique pickup design. Allowing a more natural sound to emanate from his instruments at very high volumes without any feedback. He has retained the natural earthy woody tone of a acoustic violin, but brought the amplified control of electric violins to form the perfect blend of both worlds. The end of the video features Justin playing a piece that he wrote using his technology in the heart of the workshop at night. Shot on 4 different cameras. All Canon. 5D mark2, 7D, 60D, 550D all L series lenses.
