Killick Erik Hinds of Athens, Georgia is a tireless advocate for improvised and the other kind of music. He plays quartertone electric guitar, Big Red harp guitar, and his devil cello: the H'arpeggione, an upright acoustic instrument with 12 sympathetic strings. Killick focuses on the raw sound of his strings in all their microtonal glory; his style blends primitive folk, heavy metal, and sacred musics from around the world into a distinct voice. Killick has played with countless improvisers and performs regularly around the country, to the delight of millions. He runs Solponticello Records, looks good in black (the new salmon), and is obsessed with old-school arcade games. He's the fellow who put out a solo acoustic H'arpeggione version of Slayer's Reign In Blood.
