My name is Uli Bösking, electric violinist, violaplayer and highschool teacher (spanish and music).

Since 1983 I have played in many bands, started some own bands and projects and worked frequently as studio- and stage musician for theatre plays and dance theatre.

Between 1983 and 1986 I wrote my first songs for two bands called "Debil Agil"and "The Amnesia Vivace".

In 1989 I recorded a LP/CD with my first own rock band "Virulent Violins" (CD/LP "Red and blue", Yellow/EFA).

1992/93 I played some gigs with Blaine L. Reininger of "Tuxedomoon". About this episode you can read in the recently published biography "Music For Vagabonds - The Tuxedomoon Chronicles" by Isabelle Corbisier (OpenMute; UK ISBN 987-1-906496-08-1).

In the end-90ies I dipped into some jazzy salsa calling it "Mozos Molones".

About 2001 I set to music german poetry of the fin de ciecle and contemporary spanish poetry for my duo-project "DosUlises".

The same year I asked audio technician Manfred Reckmeyer to develop the adjustable magnetic humbucking "REBO" pickup for bowed strings.

In 2007 I played the greek / eastern traditional "Misirlou" - best known from the "Pulp fiction" soundtrack - live in a "dick-daleian" surfrock version. On bass Andy and on drums Ray of "Velvetone".

This inspired me to start "Dodecats", a project for which I write instrumentals in surfrock style implying contemporary elements like dodecaphonic structures and balkan scales.
My favourite instrument is a semiacoustic baritone violin with electromagnetic "REBO" pickup, custom onboard preamp and geared "Pegheds" pegs strung with octave strings ("Thomastik Super Flexible" - set 2714).
I play tube amps only: a 1975 VOX AC 30 and a Fender Blues Junior. No effects but overdrive and spring reverb.

The same year I initiated a school project for electric string players (drums, cello, viola / violins) called "Surfin' Bela". Clicking the link above you'll find lots of infos (all in german!), links, soundfiles & scores.

In 2008 the "REBO" pickup went Myspace, we finished our 5-string violin model and hopefully "Dodecats" will play some shows.
