COLLIDE was recently acknowledged by Gigmasters co-founder Michael Caldwell: "[Collide is] a cool group! I love it."
A collision of ideas, cultures, styles, and aural art forms, COLLIDE brings everything to the table as they sample, deconstruct, and mash up every genre of music to create an entirely new musical landscape. Divisi Strings has collaborated with DJ firm, LG Entertainment to produce a show you will not find anywhere else. This one of a kind ensemble takes what may be considered a traditional string quartet and fuses in house beats laid down by the DJ. The finishing touch - Plasma TV's to highlight videos of each song the band performs and intellegient lighting provided by COLLIDE!
"It's literally a collision of classical and pop that makes you want to dance."
