Growing up in Venezuela, Felix Martin developed his own way of playing guitar: by playing two at the same time. After making two dual neck guitars with independent luthiers and guitar makers, he later went on to graduate from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. Felix nods players like Stuart Hamm and Steve Vai, but also blends his own percussive and jazz-bass technique with his 14-string guitars. Felix has released two albums with Prosthetic Records, one of which brings to life his live performance. Truly a forward thinking musician, he spent years tediously creating The Human Transcription, in which he has given the human voice note values. He has turned the speeches of several historical figures into compositions based upon these voice to note transcriptions.
Felix and I caught up while he was pout on his first headlining tour of North America. Read more here.
