He made one violin sound like a full section

We have been informed of the death, aged 63, of Stuart Gordon, a Geordie violinist who toured and recorded with Peter Gabriel, Alison Moyet, XTC and the Beach Boys.

In his heyday, we read, Stuart ‘perfected the method of recording multiple takes to create a string section, using slight variations in tuning and several different instruments to create the sense of more than one player.’

  • Yessir! He perfected the “art” of putting string players out of work with his slightly out of tune overdubs.
