There's never been a better time to be a string player. In the not-so-distant past we had to fight musical stereotypes to do anything unusual or creative with our instruments and then fend for ourselves in a world run by Top-40 radio and old-school promoters who only booked the standard "Big 5" genres. Nowadays if your string playing is non-traditional then your biggest challenge is no longer to break out of "the box." Your biggest challenge is to build a box; your very own special, wonderful, beautiful box. It's really more than a box. It's your clubhouse. It's a secret fort. Only you can construct it. Once it's built it still needs to be refined, reinforced, and decorated. When it's ready you need to throw a big party and invite all of your friends. Then, when they arrive, tell them to invite their friends. Party in that box until it falls apart. Then go build a new box. #jazzviolinholyshat
