Crazed high-gain violinist. Classically trained, roughly 18 years of practice. Some people call me a musical mad scientist; I'm pretty experimental and tend to use my gear in unintended ways, repair and maintain my own equipment, and design and build small circuits for myself if I can't find anything that does what I want. I play a 7-string electric violin, and that doesn't just mean loud, it means that not only can I sound more like a cello or viola, I also can sound very different from a "normal" violin, up to and including heavy and very aggressive distortion. I can even play metal rhythm riffs, depending on the riff. Please check out the attached videos/demos so that you know what I do/am capable of. I'm into mostly heavy stuff, from metal to heavy rock, with spacey bits, but I also have a lifelong passion for game soundtracks, from Celeste to DOOM (2015). Some people have told me my music is "post-almost-everything", I'm not sure I see it that way myself, but music is what you make of it, after all. I love doom, stoner, prog, sludge, and more, especially with mostly clean vocals. I also like some mathy hard-hitting stuff (Sokoninaru, Tricot.) If you want to chat or jam, hit me up, I don't bite; if I'm not interested in your project, I'll say so. It's best to email me instead of contacting me through Bandmix; please keep in mind that I don't have a pro account, so if I'm interested in what you do, I can't contact you first. Thanks for looking, hope you have a good day! :)

Enough to say I have a home studio. I'm equipped to play out, and to be as loud as I need to be. I use Hovercraft/Orange/Marshall/Carvin stuff and have a variety of pedals.
Threnody For Eta Carinae (Starkiller Requiem)
Threnody For Eta Carinae (Starkiller Requiem)Have *you* read the Three Body Problem and the rest of the Remembrance of Earth's Past trilogy? https://twitter.com/unormal/status/1089044236132118528 Recorded with amplified 7-string electric violin, electric guitar, electric bass, drums programmed w/ Superior Drummer 2. Synths are Serum. Heavy experimentation with quad-tracking the violin and guitar parts here, especially doubling each other after the three minute mark to try and maximize the wall of sound coming from that slow riff. Bass also triple-tracked, with a center track low-passed to keep the low-end clean and clear, with two hard-panned high-passed tracks for a wall of grind. I think it worked pretty well.

I also have a playthrough video w/ fingerboard shots of the violin here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q8wPpnvbDm8 All guitar parts were transcribed to my violin. Bass parts were recorded on... a bass, while drum parts were programmed with Superior Drummer 2 except for one tambourine sample I yanked from the free sample libraries included with Kontakt Player.
