Mei Ohara is a classically trained violinist and an MIT scientific research assistant, working with audio experimentation. As if that wasn't nerdy enough, here she is, making electro beats and shredding on Vindice, the electric violin. Her music mixes her classical background with her love of video game sound tracks, good electronic music (her favorites include Depeche Mode, IAMX, Oh Land, and many others), and personal experiences from noxious love to an obsession with space.
Based in Boston but raised outside of Washington, D.C., Mei has performed around the East Coast and as far as the deserts of California. As a biracial, dual citizen of both the U.S. and Japan, she intends to travel the world and hopes her music can take her out and about!
Raised in the Washington D.C. Metropolitan area, Mei Ohara is a half Japanese half English-American musician who now studies music in Boston. Working on a classical performance degree on the violin, Mei Ohara has also begun working on creating music that embodies her vast range of favorite genres. In this project she focuses on capturing a more rock-electronic vibe, but her knowledge of classical theory inevitably plays a big role in her perspective of music. She draws inspiration from everywhere, from the beauty of the vast enigma of the universe to the human psyche and love.
