Wytold plays a six-string electric cello that captures the depth and power of a stand-up bass, the rich tonal timbre of the acoustic cello, and the bright crispness of violin solos and harmonies. He records these sounds live to create his own rock-orchestral accompaniment, joined by bass, banjo, flute, sad, and violin in his Ensemble.
Wytold’s music has been featured in theater, film, and dance, as well as heard on NPR and in the Sundance award-winning and EMMY-nominated film Blood Brother. He has recently performed at TEDx Foggy Bottom, studied with Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Ensemble, and been an Artist in Residence at the Strathmore Performing Arts Center. Wytold has also recently collaborated with the National Symphony Orchestra to perform orchestral versions of his original music at Echo Stage and the Kennedy Center Concert Hall, and he frequently collaborates with GRAMMY-nominated progressive hip-hop artist, Christylez Bacon. Wytold is currently touring nationally to perform original live dance scores with the contemporary dance company, Christopher K. Morgan & Artists, and when he is in DC, Wytold is leading regular music workshops for veterans at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. Learn more at www.Wytold.com.
