I started the violin when I was 7 and composed my first instrumental track in 2003: "The Race", a track for four violins. Since then, I wrote a number of other stuff for the violin and some other instruments. I also wrote songs for some bands and collaborated with some songwriters worldwide over the internet...Yes, I know! online songwriting collaboration is a crazy idea but it's lots of fun too ;)
All my studies were classical but I came in contact with the world of electric violin and playing rock music on the violin about a year ago. You see, I'm not sure yet about my directions in violin playing yet...I mean rock and fiddling is always fun but I always feel it lacks that magical ingredient you I always find in classical stuff!!
Anyways, here's my profile. Using the very primitive recording equipment that I have, I'll try to record some of the stuff that I write and play...Hope you find the time and the energy to listen :D
