Dustin Silva started playing the guitar at the age of seven. He is a composer, singer-songwriter, and poet. As a teenager, he studied at Musicians Institute and won a summer scholarship to the Berkley College of Music. He has also studied North Indian classical music at the Ali Akbar Khan college. At present, he is recording a musical project inspired by visual artists: painters such as Basquiat, Van Gogh, Martin Ramirez, and Hundertwasser. This music is highly textural and obsessed with rhythm. Most of all of his work is created through the guitar, whether it is playing with various objects, using tempering, or contact mics. He is always inventing new sounds.
