"Essential viewing for anyone interested in the violin and its craft" The STRAD


Strad3D DVD combines new findings and vivid mages with traditional documentation.

This project is a culmination of George Bissinger's 35 year "Viocadeas" acoustic research; see article index.

We are now able to see the first true 3-dimensional animations of a violin's vibrations – what a Strad does, not only what it looks like!

The new imaging tools are so vivid that a violin maker or musician can begin to absorb this vision in an intuitive way.

A practical reason to study the violin in this way, is to move our focus away from history and mystique, into the realm of function and sound.
