Hello MIM!

Had a chance to visit the Musical Instrument Museum in Scottsdale, AZ this weekend. What an awesome trip! Within minutes of stepping into the door we were on our way, headsets in hand.

Walking through every country, I was amazed at all of the different ways that instruments were built; and the headsets automatically sync’d up with video clips at each station so we could hear and see all the instruments in use.

After our tour of the world, we headed over to a gallery where everyone could play all sorts of different instruments. My favorite being a huge gong, which was smartly guarded by a very nice employee who explained how to correctly use it. After making a series of small hits around the edge of the gong, we were instructed to give the middle a nice whack and then put our head up right next to it. It felt like I was standing next to a stack of sub woofers that were pumping out some heavy dubstep.

I also had a chance to play a very nice piano which was sitting in the lobby with a note that invited any pianist to sit down and do their thing. It had been a long time, if ever, since I had played a piano that nice. What a treat! You can see a video of me playing the piano, mixing through a few of my songs, on the “Music” page: https://coryjbergquist.wordpress.com/music/ or watch it here!:

I would happily return to MIM again! I feel like I’d almost need at least one more trip to really grasp everything that I saw.

About coryjbergquist

I am a musician. While assisting and volunteering my time to my fellow artist throughout Arizona, I have found a calling in sound. Through the process of video shooting and editing, I have found that I have a knack for being able to aid the storytelling through sound produced with my piano and Korg Kaossilator Pro. And because of this I have been sought out to help compose original scores for all types of videos. New genres both intrigue and push me to help increase my versatility in the music I create. In fact I welcome the challenges that may come from non-a-typical pieces. It is the feeling I put into each video piece, soundtrack, and score that strengthens the voice of the video maker.
