The Q magazine interview recently released mentioned the name of a great Italian musician and an excellent violinist - David Rossi.
Rossi is currently a member of Goldfrapp and has known Coldplay since their support during the Twisted Logic Tour. Davide Rossi worked on Coldplay's Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends and his work is featured in seven songs of the new album. Violet Hill, first single released by the band on iTunes, features a soundscapes intro-like, which originally was an improvisation that Rossi and keyboard player Jon Hopkins did together during an early session with the band at their studio in London.
Others songs where Rossi's electric violin can be heard are: Life In Technicolor, Lovers In Japan, Cemeteries Of London, 42, Yes and Strawberry Swing (the chunky bass groove, didgeridoo's like that comes a little while after the beginning of the song, is one of the many examples of the sound of his Violectra).
Coldplayzone.it have interviewed Davide Rossi and he tells us about his work on Leftrightleftrightleft and Rainy Day, two tracks which didn't make the album. Read the full interview transcript here [thanks iriden & coldpatrix]
