Tracing a harmonic path

It's tomorrow, Thursday, morning now in the UK, so here's last night's efforts. "Be creative", the lady said. so I racked my brains for ideas. Then an opportunity suddenly presented itself. Anyone guess what it was? There's a clue in the title.

Is it a small light dangling from a bungee cord?

Nope, but "small light" is true. Remember the clue!

Is it a color organ? They type of light they used to place inside jukeboxes that would move with the sound?

The inspiring opportunity suddenly presented itself to my ears, not my eyes, when my son started his violin practice.Here he's playing G majorarpeggios, 3 octaves, 3 notes per bow, with a 1-LED keyring flashlight attached to his wrist with rubber bands and partly obscured with black tape (not shown on this shot).

Both shots in the first post were 10s, f/8, ISO64. Attempts at 16s, f/2.8, ISO 100, without the tape were way too much.

I didn't bother retaking to fix the red eyes, because his teenage patience had been tested enough.It does illustrate what you'd get if you practised your violin rigorously enough, all night, even in the dark - "Dr.Suzuki says 'Never be lazy, Practise and practise, Until you go crazy'."

Alan,

Great idea!!! And cool "movements". I can just imagine Vivaldi's four seasons from the light motion!
