Hello! I'm Javier. I am a professional violinist and composer from Uruguay and based in Chicago. I've recorded dozens (hundreds?) of times in various styles... Classical, Rock, Pop, Hip-Hop and for all types of visual media.
Recently, I composed and recorded a fiddle tune that was featured in NBC sitcom Will & Grace.
I enjoy collaborating with great artists from all genres, including hip-hop singer/producer Skylar Grey, Grammy-winning singer/songwriter Duncan Sheik and Classical crossover pianist Christopher O'Riley (NPR's From the Top).
Over the last 7 years, I've been writing, recording and performing with my violin-and-guitar duo KOZM, described as "the most rock ’n’ roll pair of classically trained musicians working today” by 21st Century Musician. Our mashup of TV Themes was featured nationally on AMC.
When I'm not performing or recording, I produce electronic music and compose for film and video-games.
