Monica Germino featured in September 2014 edition of Strings Magazine 

Behind the scenes: Monica talks about her work with sound designer Frank van der Weij, La Girò, and the concerts in the Washington, D.C. area Festival.

Germino: "People don’t always understand what I’m doing right away. â€œYou play in a duo with a ... sound engineer?” they say. But once they hear the results, it’s all clear. It just works."

Strings Magazine: "Whether she was playing the violin, electric violin, adapted violin, whispering, talking, or singing, Germino conveyed her passion with tour de force virtuosity and burning vulnerability... Armed with a Joannes Baptista Ceruti (Cremona, 1802), on permanent loan from the Elise Mathilde Foundation, and a custom-made electric “Violectra,” the Amsterdam-based American/Dutch musician played a major role...a violin recital in a charged environment of electronics, art installations, and images with punk-rock bassist/ turned-sound-designer Frank van der Weij."
