Through Arts Grants from our Government, assistance from the Austrian Government, family and various commissioned works, I purchased the proper materials required to produce 57 instruments. These violins; viewed positively in various print articles, TV and local art galleries, have given me great satisfaction. My violins are in the hands of professional artists, one being Canadian recording artist Natalie Mac Master. One must understand that wealth and fame where never a motivating factor in my pursuit to understand this greatest of violin makers, and his instruments.
Two years ago I acquired a computer from my son in law and have taught myself the principles needed to utilize this new technology. I am now able to inform the general violin playing population of the principle discovered through my studies of these instruments.
Educated primarily in Electromechanical engineering, I had worked in the electric generating field. With further studies of alchemy, physiology and psychology I reasoned out my techniques from which these instruments are the result. Had I not completed these 57 instruments, all this would be just more of the same rhetoric concerning this instrument maker of Absam.
I have included various Biographies on Stainer to demonsrate the opinions concerning the the life and times of this outstanding maker . You will find in the end that the truth is ,nobody nows much factual information ,just speculation.
