Monica Germino featured in September 2014 edition of Strings Magazine
"5 MINUTES WITH... MONICA GERMINO"
Behind the scenes: Monica talks about her work with sound designer Frank van der Weij, La GirÃ², and the concerts in the Washington, D.C. area Festival.
Germino: "People donâ€™t always understand what Iâ€™m doing right away. â€œYou play in a duo with a ... sound engineer?â€ they say. But once they hear the results, itâ€™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 â€œViolectra,â€ 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."
