Electric violin players outline new approach
Electric violin group FUSE have revealed that their music achieves what many people had previously thought was impossible.
The duo are currently gearing up to record their debut album on the Edel label, which features electric violin interpretations of famous rock songs.
Joan Jett's 1982 classic I Love Rock and Roll, which was later covered by Britney Spears in 2002, is among the well-known songs on the LP.
Linzi Stoppard, one-half of the band, said: "No-one thought that what we do was even possible.
"Everything you hear is violins."
She revealed that they chose material from huge stadium acts as they want to evoke a similar sense of size and power in their music.
Stoppard said the style they use is more akin to that of an electric guitar player, although with more electricity and soul.
"We specialise in blowing away people's preconceptions," she added.
The album also includes a number of special guests, including Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason and Status Quo's electric guitar player Francis Rossi, who appears on a new version of the band's 1974 hit single Down Down.Posted on 22 Dec 2009 20:00 to category : Instruments News
