Wytold plays an electric cello with two extra strings

Allowing him to capture the depth and power of a stand-up bass, the rich tonal timbre of the acoustic cello, and the bright crispness of violin solos and harmonies. Wytold creates his own rock-orchestral accompaniment through live-looping, often accompanied by bass, viola, violin, flute, saxophone, guitar, banjo, and/or percussion.

Wytold Ensemble creates original music by blending classical technique and inspiration with contemporary song structures, jazz improvisation, and progressive world rhythms. Led by six-string electric cellist/live-looper/composer, Wytold, the Ensemble features double bassist/composer Ethan Foote, Celtic fiddler Chelle Fulk, Gina Sobel on flute/bass flute/alto saxophone, and jazz guitarist/songwriter Jerry Tolk on the six-string banjo. They strive to reflect each musician's unique artistic voices and innovative styles throughout their repertoire, which spans from Wytold's classically orchestrated compositions to his remixes of famous classical themes and instrumental covers of modern pop and rap songs. Wytold's original music has been featured in live theater, modern dance, and film, and he has performed his compositions with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC.   Read More...
