We love playing this beautiful song from Pixar's Coco. Luis' family celebrates Dia de los Muertos, which is the featured holiday in the movie, and we thought it would be nice to make a video of the main song.
I had the privilege of seeing the movie premiere at Pixar Studios in Emeryville, CA because of my sister's position there. Even cooler, my grandfather's picture is featured in the credits of the movie!
I really enjoyed drawing the titles. If you would like to purchase any of my art, go to the tab "Art for Sale" or e-mail me for a custom commission.
This song was one of Luis' adds to our song list, and we love playing it! It's super fun and catchy and it got us a nice tip the other day at our gig. "Electric Love" by Børns doesn't appear to have hit the mainstream but it's definitely worth giving it a listen. Hope everyone enjoys our violin and guitar cover.
Smile by Charlie Chaplin
This song makes me smile and cry at the same time, I love it so much.
Orchestra Live Stream
Amid the 2020 COVID-19 outbreak in the United States, many live performances were cancelled or switched to live stream. Brevard Symphony Orchestra is among the many orchestras adapting to the current conditions.
Here is a screenshot from Brevard Symphony Orchestra's trailer for the most recent concert, featuring Beethoven Symphony No. 6. You can see me at the front of the picture with my super long ponytail!
Take On Blinding Lights
Amy & Luis changed things up by creating an electric violin and DJ set. The mashup of Take On Me and Blinding Lights is a sample of this new offering.
Amy & Luis received a grant from The True North Foundation to be part of their #YouAreEssential campaign. This is probably our best video yet and was so much fun to plan, make, and share! Luis worked on mixing our audio using Ableton and I put together the video with Final Cut Pro.
When we were brainstorming and coming up with ideas, we tried to focus on the fun parts of these hard times to create an uplifting video. It was a lot of fun to make these little video clips of life in the year 2020. I also got to use my tap dancing skills! We hope you laugh and smile while you watch :-)
