String instruments never seem like they do much movement off their grid. So taunt and stiff, it may surprise you to watch this video of how much they truly surf. Digital cameras capture images top to bottom, which may help explain these slow motion results. The string dances and wiggles in a crazy crawl through the musicians fingers. It’s a new way of realizing how music makes its notes, obviously more than usually meets the eye.  An Urbanscreen production.


Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
