About the Artist:
Casey Driessen is a GRAMMY-nominated fiddle player, vocalist, experimental musician, and educator. He has collaborated with Darrell Scott, Tim O’Brien, Béla Fleck, Jerry Douglas, and Steve Earle among others, and served as Program Director (for the Contemporary Performance master’s degree) at Berklee College of Music’s international campus in Valencia, Spain. Casey recently released "The Chop Notation Project" in partnership with Spanish violinist Oriol Saña and in consultation with other recognized “choppers.” This free resource establishes a standardized approach to notating percussive the bowed string technique known as "chopping" to enable composers and players to share musical ideas that stem from this approach.
