The Many Sounds of the Violin
Get the Flash Player to see the wordTube Media Player.

Daniel Bernard Roumain (speaking to the audience from the stage): You know when I was growing up I wanted my violin to sound like a bass guitar.

I wanted my violin to sound like an electric guitar.

I wanted my violin to sound like a turntable.

I wanted my violin to scream.

I wanted my violin to laugh.

You know I wanted my violin to be like a drum.
