Improvisations
Weekly+
 
I challenge myself to create a new improvisation on a regular basis. For now, I’m limiting the improvisations to mandolin; I really want to push the instrument beyond its typical use. I’ll add other instruments later. The music will be mixed and processed with digital effects; I will edit it only if something is truly out of place. The idea is to eventually make an album of these pieces or variations of them. But for now, it’s just a fun project. -William Bradbury
