#162 – Joe Deninzon of Stratospheerius – The Next World

Joe Deninzon has been called the Jimi Hendrix of the electric violin, and is the world’s expert on alternative violin technique. He’s just released a book through Mel Bay called Plugging In – A Guide to Gear and New Techniques for the 21st Century Violinist.  Joe’s band Stratospheerius also has a new record out – their first in five years called The Next World. A blend of progressive rock, metal, jazz, funk, and maybe even the kitchen sink thrown in for good measure.
