Violinists play concertos, not breakbeat electronica. But Chance's End, led by classically-trained San Francisco violinist Ryan Avery, is about to change that. Influenced by artists such as Groove Armada, Gotan Project, and Vanessa-Mae, Chance's End is fusing solo violin with electronic music, bringing the instrument well into the 21st century.
Ryan formed Chance's End in the summer of 2000 in his hometown of Boulder, Colorado before moving to San Francisco, California where he collaborates with Tango Revolution events. His sound is built around acoustic and electric violin, infused with strong melodic hooks, and polished with a thick sonic texture of breakbeat electronica. With Chance's End new album "The Outsider", the violin stands front and center of a gorgeous downtempo electronica landscape, creating a unique web of lush melodies and electronic beats.
His new album once again brings violin electronica to the masses, and its unique style is bound to turn some heads.
Tango Revolution is a weekly neighborhood educational project to offer anyone the opportunity to learn and experience the social aspect of Argentine Tango dance, music and history. By holding the event in an accessible café on a Sunday afternoon we encourage the spontaneous inclusion of music and dance in our everyday life as a communal experience. We believe in shared leadership of all genders and offer the beautiful connection in the Tango Embrace as a common ground and antidote against the isolation, separation and fearful existence we are led to believe is necessary. What better way to come home to ourselves and connect with each other across our differences than the non-verbal power of a musical and dance embrace, listening and moving together as one?
Tango Revolution is a program of Intimate Embrace Tango, which envisions Argentine Tango as a relational matrix of connection to ourselves, each other and the world. We organize classes, workshops, cultural, social awareness-and fundraising events around critical issues of our time. Come watch, listen or join in the dance! All ages are welcome. No dance experience or partner necessary.
