Detroit Youth Volume violin and viola students ages 3-18 learned to produce their own electronic music during a series of workshops with Molly Jones, Scott Murphy, Rafael Statin, Sterling Toles, and Moxie Strings. They used samples of acoustic and electric violin, their voices, and an MPC -- the favorite tool of famed Detroiter and the Mozart of hip hop, J Dilla!
Teaching artists Scott Murphy and Sterling Toles performed alongside students at the album release at Trinosophes, a minimalist, vegan-friendly American cafe featuring locally sourced faire, live music & art exhibits. Its location is Gratiot Ave. in Detroit's Eastern Market, once known as Techno Alley. The CD comes with a lovely eco-wallet case designed by Danielle Aubert.
