Violinists play concertos, not breakbeat electronic music. But Chance's End, led by classically-trained San Francisco violinist Ryan Avery, is about to change that. Influenced by artists such as Groove Armada, Hybrid, and Vanessa-Mae, Chance's End is fusing solo violin with electronic music, bringing it into the 21st century.
Ryan formed his Chance's End production alias in the summer of 2000 in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado. The Chance's End breakbeat sound is built around acoustic and electric violin ensembles, infused with strong melodic hooks, and polished with a thick sonic texture that dance-floor breaks do not normally provide. Indeed, Chance's End usually produces music oriented to living room listening, rather than peak-of-the-night anthems.
Chance's End is currently promoting The Outsider, the new album released September 10th 2007. The 2004 CD release Set Me Free and its vinyl single, Skyway, are currently available through the website.
Chance's End garners progressive electronica influences from Hybrid and Groove Armada, and continues the push to move violin into the 21st century as started by Vanessa-Mae.
