How did it take me this long into my lifespan to learn that EWIs (Electronic Wind Instruments) exist

I have a mighty NEED :possum_rawr:

After watching a few youtube videos… dang, this looks SO up my alley.

My main difficulty with making music nowadays is that I want to do so electronically, but to do so I'd have to learn piano (or alternatively electric guitar or something) to use as a midi-controller input.

But being able to use a woodwind-style instrument as a midi controller? That's SO EXCITING to me! :D

Time to save up for an EWI Solo, I think… ($700 CAD, though, :oof:)

I miss making music. I miss it a lot. But the problem with playing clarinet is that it's not easy to play casually, on your own… you can play melodies and some solos, sure, but the instrument shines when it's played in accompaniment with other instruments.

That, and it's pretty loud. It's tricky to practice clarinet and not have that constant worry in the back of your head that you're bothering people. It's just hard to pick up and use, you know?

@Rheall Lockdown has helped me with my anxiety regarding annoying the neighbours. With everyone staying at home, we have to allow each a bit of space to be noisy, and that starts with allowing myself :-) Admittedly in my case it's only singing, which isn't as loud as a clarinet! I try to keep it to 30mn a day.

Having said that, those Electronic Wind Instruments do look quite exciting, regardless of the neighbours :-)
