violin is dead...long live violin

I've been studying electric violin for a number of years now. In my mind it's the violin evolved. And I just love it.

I make my own music using raw electrically amplified string sound or create "collage" music from digital bits and pieces. I call it Noise Sound Music.

Since 1995 I've been researching the history and development of the electric violin and in 2000 I started publishing on my own web site. During this time I have recorded and performed in a braod range of styles as soloist and member of a group.

Most recently I have been working as arranger/composer and accompanist for a singer. This will be my first commercially available Cd release.

I have an extensive back catalogue of private and short run recordings and have compiled an comprehensive database of everything 'electric' concerning violins.
