Christophe uses his electric violin as a means of emotive expression while fuelling his live sets with interactive elements. Take a bunch of violin melodies, layer them carefully, then add a handful of synthesizers and drum machines. Add reverb and delay and season with improvisation to taste. Close your eyes and enjoy. Even though this sounds like a recipe to All Reitz Reserved’s sound - you'll never get the same result twice! In his latest work, Chris orbits around a few select instruments. The transition from digital surroundings of computers and controllers to organic machines and sound elements lead to the release of “Refractions” in November.
