Seth Schwarz loves melodies and is a classically trained violinist. In his teens he began to merge violin and other classical instruments with the digital sound playground. Seth incorporates elements of House, Techno & Electronica, while improvising with his violin for an emotional imprint and looping it through FX chains creating a unique signature on the virtual world of sound. He has given numerous concerts across Europe, Japan, North & Central to South America as well as India, The Middle East and Afrika amongst multiple times at Burning Man, Afrika Burn, Midburn, BOOM Festival, DGTL Festival Amsterdam, Tomorrowland, ADE, The BPM Festival and Fusion Festival to name a few. His powerful productions meet the expectations on the dance floor, yet at the same time they break the circle of imitation and repetition: often it’s those who enter the scene from a different background who take the evolution of music to the next level – open minded and curious instead of suffering from tunnel vision.

By merging the concepts of electronic music and classic composition he creates mighty bangers of truly symphonic dimensions. Instead of being a teenage club junkie and after hour addict, Seth dedicated a great part of his youth to classical music. That’s a really good thing for his liver function, and that’s an even better thing for his creative style. It’s not unusual for him to record up to 70 instrumental tracks for a new production – each one hand-played, of course. Classical music composition meets the clubby bounce of a kick drum: the result is extremely catchy and has a unique feeling.

In 2021 Seth is looking back on timeless productions as well as collaborations with sophisticated artists like Gabriel Ananda, Einmusik, Be Svendsen, Monkey Safari, Mollono.Bass, Beatamines, YokoO and many more. His music has been remixed by producers like Martin Waslewski, Wankelmut and names above. He has been imprinting his music on sophisticated labels such as All Day I Dream, Katermukke, Einmusika, Infine, Bar25 and 3000 Grad to name a few. Seth has been successfully remixing Ben Böhmer, Rebecca & Pupkulies and The SkaZka Orchestra to mention a few.

Furthermore, Seth’s compositions are featured in various television series and movies. His latest achievement was scoring the music for the Berlin based cinematic film “FAUST” by Karsten Pruehl. He combines his classical training and musical background with collaborative talents for production and musical arrangement all while being a medical doctor specializing in radiation oncology at the University Clinic Halle in Germany.
