ELECTRIC VIOLIN, LOOPING PEDALS AND REEL-TO-REEL'
Ambient music with influences of eastern, minimal, classical and celtic music, but also getting into more experimental modes. I am using.
Electric Violin, Revox A77 & Akai 1722L reel-to-reel, Roland EV-5, Boss DD-7 Digital Delay ,Ditto X2 Looper , Electro-Harmonix Cathedral stereo reverb pedal.
Background to this project:
For over 30 years I have been intrigued by the interaction and synergy between visual arts, time, space and music.
I started composing to visual arts very early on in my career, creating soundscapes/musical portraits to paintings by the French artist Leonor Fini, whom I befriended in Paris. Later on my encounter with Indian (Carnatic) music made me appreciate the illusions of time and space even more and I got inspired by composers of minimal music who used tape machines which enabled them to use and re-use sounds as layers of musical paint on an ever changing canvas.
In this project performing live on electric violin and (looping) pedals allows me to adapt musical character and shading to a particular space and moment in time, painting the atmosphere or catching the vibe of the moment, tuning into the energies surrounding us.
