A day in the life

By Shelling

Autumn light.

Today i was mixing the sound at a concert in my school. The artist is getting to be very well known among the Folk music community. Her name is Emilia Amper and she plays a swedish instrument called "Nyckelharpa", Key harp. The instrument is played with a bow, like a violin bow, only shorter. You play it by pressing keys with your left hand fingers, one key for every note you play. The instruments popularity has risen greatly over the last couple of decades, mainly because of young artists like Emilia Amper and Johan Hedin. The music was very well received by our students, who are not always easy to please with unfamiliar music. Emilias latest record is callede "Lux" which means light. Just what we needed on a grey, rainy day like today.
