To start the day …. “Her humble beginnings”!!


~~November 24, 2014~~ 

I think you can tell that I am an ardent Lindsey Stirling fan. I found out about her when I saw here “Elements” YouTube video. I have been following her since. I was once told that she started in “America’s Got Talent” but I’ve never followed that show. 

Here what happened during her participation in that reality show.

Raised in a Mormon community in Arizona, Lindsey studied classical music rigorously as a teenager. Lindsey’s love for the violin would not let go, and it became a comfort throughout her struggle with an eating disorder during her early adulthood. Through this passion, Lindsey has created a music world where the romance of Celtic folk music and modern classical meet the infectious energy of dance and electronica.

On stage, Stirling moves with the grace of a ballerina but works the crowd into a frenzy, “dropping the beat” like a rave fairy. Stirling is the model of a modern independent recording artist, with a symbiotic relationship with her fans. She is famed for taking “requests” and has recorded unique versions of the themes from “Phantom Of The Opera” and “Game Of Thrones”, the computer games “Zelda,” “Pokemon,” and “Skyrim,” as well as pop songs by Michael Jackson and Rihanna; She uploads them all to Lindseystomp, a secondary YouTube channel packed with music videos and short comedy films, many featuring her alter-ego – a ‘superfan’ named Phelba. 

Audition
Lindsey Stirling’s audition in Episode 510 consisted of playing the violin in a hip-hop style. Piers Morgan, Sharon Osbourne, and Howie Mandel all voted “Yes,” sending Lindsey to the Vegas Round.

When the time came for the most important performance, these were the judges’ comments.

~~PIERS~~

“You’re not good enough, I don’t think, to get away with flying through the air and try to play the violin at the same time.”

~~SHARON~~

“You need to be in a group. What you are doing right now isn’t enough to fill a theater in Las Vegas”.

~~HOWIE~~

“You are great. That much movement threw off your playing.”

~I GUESS SHE PROVED THEM ALL WRONG~

After the Show

Being voted off “America’s Got Talent” turned out to be what she considers the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Rejection simply strengthened Stirling’s resolve to be herself. “The same reasons I was told I wouldn’t succeed are the reasons people travel hundreds of miles to see me now,” she laughs. “Because it’s different. Because it’s something you haven’t seen before …”

Since the show, Lindsey has flourished as an artist.

A classically trained violinist from Gilbert, AZ, Lindsey has entered a futurist world of electronic big beats and animation, leaping through the music industry with over 675 million views on YouTube, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold out tours worldwide.

Lindsey’s self-titled debut album featured twelve original tracks; including the viral piece “Crystallize,” which has racked up over 97 million YouTube views.

To start the day …. ” Dragon Age: Inquisition”!!


~~November 22, 2014~~ 

I’m not a gamer, nor do I follow any of them. I must confess that I have no clue about the games that are mentioned below. I do follow Lindsey Stirling … I believe she has great talent, chemistry and artistic presence.

I found this video this morning. It’s perfect for a gray, cool rainy Saturday morning when you stay home and “play games”. 

ENJOY!!

If you’ve ever wanted to watch an incredibly-talented violinist destroy a High Dragon with just the power of her music, then you should probably watch Lindsey Stirling magic her away through the main theme from Dragon Age: Inquisition.

From Malukah to Taylor Davis, gamers are some of the most musical fans in geek culture.

Lindsey Stirling is one of the most popular of these musicians, using her violin skills to take music from games like Halo and Assassin’s Creed III to stunning new levels through the way she plays and the way she produces her YouTube videos.

There’s no better example of this than her latest cover of the main theme from BioWare’s new Dragon Age: Inquisition. Not only does she give a great performance, but with the help of digital studio Everdream she’s even able to take on a dragon with her violin. Stirling posted the video online Tuesday, coinciding with Inquisition’s release, and it’s already been viewed more than a million times.

Perhaps it should come as no surprise that video game music inspires musicians in this way. The produces of many iconic game soundtracks wanted to engross gamers and get them emotionally involved with the story. Dragon Age’s music is no exception. Still, it’s always amazing to see fans use their talents to give audio tracks their own unique spin.
