Original Crossover music by Dutch violinist / composer Xander Nichting
New album release expected in May!!
I am working very hard towards the release of my 2nd album in May. Here is a little snippet:
You can be part of this process!
I’d love to have your involvement.
Live played versions, some not (yet) on an album.
Some reactions: “Relaxing” “Virtuose” “Soothing” “Inspirational”…
Out Of The Blue
Out Of The Blue
Take a peek behind the scenes of a hard working violinist. (What a great job I am allowed to do!).
This will be one of the songs on the second album.
This was also written in my study period and would be the first song ever played on an electric violin at a final exam on a Dutch conservatory.
I am quite proud to have pionered as a pop/jazz violinist on a conservatory, many have followed this direction afterwards.
Let me know what you think, I am always curious for your opinion.
Meditation, music for the soul
Meditation is a very special song to me.
I wrote this for a yoga/meditation teacher to use in class.
The Jensen violin sound is so perfect for this style of music, it blends well with the pad-layers in the track.
I would have placed it on the first album, but I didn’t feel it was finished yet.
This was a typical song that would cross my grid from time to time, tweaking and adding, I am totally happy and proud to say it is finally finished and good to go on the 2nd album.
Recording “Seven” for the 2nd album!
I am so exited that the 2nd album is finally on the way.
This is a fragment of “Seven”, which I wrote during my conservatory studies.
“Seven” is quite a “Rocky” feel with Romanian Folklore influences.
The 7/16th time signature is from a typical Romanian style.
Have a listen to the track on the left (or above on mobiles).
I hope you like it, can’t wait to record the (final) violin on it.
Special feature: André Orsel E-Guitar; Ilse Vromans Flute. (Not yet on this recording).
