Street violinist flouts it on YouTube

Posted on Tue, Nov 29, 2011 at 11:17 AM

I wrote last week about Michael Korpi, Jr., the classically trained violinist I first saw outside a deserted River Park Square one random night in October. Mr. Korpi has since posted a rendition of OneRepublic's "Apologize" on YouTube (see below). While the Whitworth student appears to be headless for most of the video, you can watch how he uses an effects pedal to loop his violin melodies and then play percussion or counter-melodies over it the loop. Awesome stuff.
