Dixon’s Violin


A one-man improvisational symphony

Inspiring audiences from Burning Man to TED talks


Why you should see this show…

You’ve never heard violin like this! The world’s premier visionary violinist, Dixon’s life mission is to inspire people – and he has done so at over 1,000 concerts across North America, including giving five TED talks/performances, over ten years at Burning Man and Electric Forest, plus radio, TV, and film appearances. A former technology leader and symphony violinist, Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Dixon now improvises on a 5-string electric violin with a looping system he developed to create an all-live one-man symphony, guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation.

Dixon's Violin Bio
Never describe Dixon’s violin playing with a label or brand it with a specific genre. That is precisely the kind of “fit into a box” categorization he scorns. Dixon, whose legal name is David James Hammond, is a musician and philosopher who never plays the same song twice and never asks for people to limit themselves to narrow categories.
