Michael Fraser, Artist Scientist

Michael Fraser, Gypsy Violinist

FloVerse Artist Scientist Michael Fraser makes musical alchemy by melding house beats infused with gypsy violin melodies. He is a producer, DJ, and violinist, who embraces the weird and the danceable to get the crowds going wild on dance floors such as the Shambhala Music Festival. You can also hear his musical storytelling in his original film compositions. One of his film scores premiered at TIFF in the animated short film by Ben Affleck called “Ben Affleck on the Meaning of Life.”  The animated short film is about an NGO called the Eastern Congo Initiative. They provide grants and advocacy that support meaningful work being done by community groups in the Congo, and the film has a simple message, “Get involved with something and help improve the fabric of the universe.”
