All sounds on this album were produced using the rarest of rare violins: Leo Fender's first 1958 production model Electric Violin.

Each of the four tracks uses Fender's violin as a single source for electrical signal production which is then fed through multiple effect chains and recorded live. The recordings are then further treated in many of the usual ways - equalisation, compression, limiting, modulation, reverberation, delay etc.

No other sound sources are added at any point in the mix. What you hear is entirely produced by an electric violin (no ordinary one at that though!).

With great thanks due to Diamanda Galás for the initial inspiration and for directly encouraging pursuing this path.

The Violin is Dead! Long Live the Violin!!
