Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) and Elan Vytal (DJ Scientific) present solo and duet works from DBR's recent album etudes4violin&electronix and from the critically acclaimed Sonata for Violin and Turntables. In their musical exploration of contrasting cultures and instruments, DBR and DJ Scientific speak to the history and traditions of both classical and pop music genres. Listen as violin, turntables, and laptop sing, battle, and rhyme together, honoring a full spectrum of musical inventions.

Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and bandleader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination. As a composer, his works range from orchestral scores and chamber pieces to music for film, theater, modern dance, and electronica. DBR is currently Artist-in-Residence of the Seattle Theater Group and Music Director of Seattle's More Music @ The Moore program. He is also the bandleader of DBR & The Mission.

Producer, laptopist, and DJ Elan Vytal—aka DJ Scientific—combines precisely engineered hip-hop beats and scratched rhythms with classical and world music sounds, both live and sampled, creating a uniquely contemporary yet accessible urban sonic experience. His debut album My Reason represents collaborations with artists such as MC Mopeshi, Boogieshack, and the violinist Earl Maneein. Vytal collaborates extensively with DBR and is a member of DBR & The Mission. He is also Creative Music Director for international shoe brand Sketchers. Learn more at elanvytal.com.
