Melvin Marshall original violin composition #1
|Project: Melvin Frankllin Marshall|
|Melvin Franklin Marshall is a self taught musician and dancer who performs original violin and guitar compositions at the BART stations in San Francisco. His unique style of music is reminiscent of the works by the famous American composer, John Cage. Cage played traditional instruments in his compositions in non-traditional ways to create new sounds. |
Melvin plays his works with passion and enthusiasm despite not having hair on his violin bow. This is one of several works which we video taped: including violin, guitar and dance.
Archive Productions Inc. is currently working on a documentary about Melvin and his works. For updates you can subscribe to our mailing list under "Participate" and we will keep you posted on new videos and documentaries.
