Quartz is a hard, shiny crystal. It is used in making electronic equipment and very accurate watches and clocks. But Quartz is also a very talented and experienced musician. And what’s even better? He will perform in Somium Space on Friday July 2nd, 22:00 CET.
Quartz is a singer and multi-instrumentalist with many years experience as a semi-professional musician in RL. He plays keyboard, electric lead & bass guitar, acoustic guitar and (occasionally) drums. Quartz is also a songwriter and has composed numerous of his own original songs. His genre is an eclectic range of classic, progressive & indie rock, from the cassette years to now. Quartz’ powerful rich voice will grip any aficionado of these genres. This coupled with his witty, albeit slightly bent sense of humour creates a show that is highly entertaining.From the Quartz Live website
Quartz, a Canadian citizen, is not unfamiliar with performing in virtual environments as he has been part of the live music scene in Second Life.
