Review Entries for Day Friday, March 01, 2013

Contained in the Collectors’ Sale of the West Country’s leading auction house, Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s is a collection of violins. These violins have been collected from around Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset. They are to be included in our Collectors’ Sale to be held at our Honiton branch on the 20th March 2013.

The violins range in quality from late 19th century copies of Stradivarius violins, through to an early 20th century violin by Johann Glass a violin maker working in Leipzig, who produced instruments for the Gewandhaus Orchestra and conservatory. More modern examples come from China and were produced in the last quarter of the 20th century. Estimates range from £40-£1,000.

There has been a resurgence in the playing of the violin and all standards of players are catered for in this Collectors’ Sale from the beginner to the student up orchestra standard, and can provide musicians with a viable alternative to a modern and sometimes more expensive instrument.

Violins appear in many of Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood’s weekly Sales, both in our Exeter and Honiton branches, we are hoping to expand the musical instrument sales and include them within a specialised section of our Collectors’ Auction.

The idea is rlaley, rlaley cool. The idea of using gestures instead of a mouse is brilliant, but it is so far off that the original idea of computers. They were clunky and hard to use, and you couldn't ever use a word-processing program. You had to BUILD one. Imagining a world without bitmapped displays and Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) is hard. Now we are on the verge of waving our arms in front of a screen to see an other x-ray. That's so cool. But there are several things about this that are not. The fact that the kinect sensor is very clunky and big. It didn't look right on top of a chair or on top of a gray-colored screen. The kinect sensor itself could be sized down and placed as built in hardware on a screen, and the screen itself tilts. That would work. But instruments going obsolete?Never going to happen. There is something about playing an actual instrument that is quite amazing. The strings pluck and there is resistance against your finger, or air blowing into a tube and sound it makes, or the beating of the drum against your hands. It just wouldn't be the same. Here's one fact (the rest are opinions/facts stewed in). Microsoft is developing a kinect for Windows and this may very well happen.
