Strings Project brings together musicians from diverse musical backgrounds.

Two virtuoso musicians from Switzerland and the USA share one common bond, i.e., they each excel in classical music and jazz. This was a key element in the genesis of this project.
A rhythm section with Jasper Hoiby on double bass and Nicolas Bianco on the electronics drums and sound design.
Julie Campiche - who initiated the project – has studied and performed three distinct musical genres that include classical, improvisation, and electronic music. With Strings Project she combines but also expands their limits.

String quartets that play with jazz or rock groups are not uncommon these days. Strings Project is an attempt to explore and further develop this type of experience. Julie has chosen a trio format rather than a quartet to allow each artist greater creative freedom. The trio consists of a viola, a cello, and a double bass. When played together these three instruments give the impression of being an entire albeit non-traditional string ensemble. Using a viola rather than a violon while adding the double bass creates a deeper larger ensemble sound.
