Minski (violinist/ composer/ producer) has performed in many of the world’s major venues, from the Lincoln Centre in New York to the Village Underground in London. Classically trained from an early age but always eager to learn from different genres whether it be Bartok, Steve Reich or Aphex Twin. From this unique melange of musical worlds comes the virtuosic magic that has produced epic releases such as the monumental Shiver EP or the soul wrenching Trip of the Dolphin EP (both collaborations with the wonderful DJ/producer Liz Cirelli and released by Natura Sonoris). In the pop world, artists as diverse as Babyshambles, Morrissey, Take That and Divine Comedy have called on Minski’s skills for their albums and he’s toured with the Dixie Chix, The Pretenders, Duffy, Peter Doherty and Florence and The Machine, among others. Minski is also a member of the Smith Quartet, one of the world’s leading interpreters of contemporary classical music, having commissioned over 150 new works by composers such as Michael Nyman and Kevin Volans. Future Minski projects include an album, and a live violin and electronics show with Liz Cirelli.
