Recording Strings

I am able to multitrack any number of violin and viola lines and can call on many professional lower string players at any moment. I offer:

- single string lines on either violin or viola

- multiple string parts on violin/viola and cello

- string trios/quartets

- string sections

- string orchestra

- string samples/riffs

- string textures

Please listen to my showreel above to hear examples of a number of these combinations I have already recorded.

String Arranging/Composing

I can also help when it comes to arranging and writing string parts. If you're not experienced in writing for strings then don't worry, I can help by:

- Arranging midi parts into string parts

- Taking an idea of yours and creating string lines to work with it

- Writing something from scratch to enhance your work

- Helping you with your arrangement to really get the most out of the different colours and textures strings have to offer

String Sessions: Features

"I have worked with Sim for many years on many different musical collaborations. She always manages to interpret my songs in such a way that both reflects the lyrical content and manages to enhance the meanings within the song… On our last project I simply left Sim In a room on her own with the recording equipment and she worked through track by track composing and recording string parts for about 6 songs. After listening to her results I didn't ask her to change or rerecord a single part. It was perfect.”
