Q&A with our LED Violinist
8 August 2022
What makes your act special/different from similar acts?
I play on an electric violin by the renowned maker Bridge violins. My violin has lovely LEDs surrounding its body and I perform with backing tracks or alongside DJs. What makes my act different is the stunning mirrored costume. It is a one of a kind, bespoke piece created with hundreds of real mirror pieces. I perform on the ground but also in the air and the costume really comes to life when lit up at night.
How did you get into the industry?
I studied classical violin at music college and decided I wanted to become a performance artist using my passion for music and visual creative skills to make unique acts.

Where are you based?
What is the furthest you have traveled for a performance?
An interesting fact about you:
I am also a bubbleologist (I create soap bubbles)
