Cello electro

Max Lilja, Finnish cellist, composer and producer, one of the founders of the million selling genre defining cello rock band Apocalyptica, a band that in the 90’s changed the dusty image of the old instrument to an up to date musical tool cool for modern kids, is now on a new mission as a solo artist with his visionary cello electro. Combining his classical background, years in rock, virtuosity and the musical diversity with the urge to find unbeaten paths to celebrate his musical talent he’s raising the bar for modern instrumentalism. The cello has changed again.

”My inspiration for making music is my love to experience and express emotions trough this forever evolving universal language. Creating electronic music with cello gives it a very specific human touch and forces me to find new ways to create new unique sounds. Fragility and strength together with presence of freshness often makes music and art stand out and appear especially interesting.”

Plays Electronica By One Cello, (2013), the solo debut of the cello adventurer featured instrumental songs inspired by 90’s electronic scene. Morphosis, (2015), continued the unique all cello experience with a fuller darker sound. The 3rd album, to be released in April 2018, features timeless originals from cinematic sound design to upbeat electronica.

Lilja studied classical cello at Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland, has released two solo albums of electronic cello music, Plays Electronica By One Cello, (2013) and Morphosis, (2015), was a co-founder of the cello rock band Apocalyptica and has composed music to several documentary films. Lilja is known as one of the most versatile acoustic and electric cellists of all time and has worked with many international artists including cross over soprano Tarja Turunen. In his career Lilja has performed in hundreds of concerts in over 60 countries.
