Chance's End (Ryan Avery) puts the violin at the center of electronic music. Influenced by artists such as Hybrid, Groove Armada, and Vanessa-Mae, Chance's End is fusing electronica with solo violin, bringing it into the 21st century.
A new remix EP containing remixes of Down The Doors is now available on Bandcamp, iTunes, and Amazon.com. We're offering the entire album for full streaming, so you can listen to all of the tracks. Each one is a little different than standard Chance's End fare, though we hope you'll like these songs just as much!
This album is digital-only. However, for those of you who really want to own a physical album, it is being offered up as an on-demand CD through Amazon. We barely make any money on the album, so we much prefer you download the tracks instead!
Back in December 2012, we played a concert at Cellspace in San Francisco for an audience of very enthusiastic tango dancers. We were lucky enough to have Cianna Stewart on hand to shoot and edit video from the evening!
Take a look at some of the footage:
Thank you to all the amazing dancers who were there that night in the crowd, and especially to Cianna for taking the time to share the footage!
The Deli SF is running their year-end readers poll for the best SF Bay Area emerging artist for 2012, and Chance's End has been nominated! We tied for 4th place in the editors poll a few weeks ago, which was absolutely amazing, but we need your help with the readers poll. Please listen to some of the nominees and then vote for your favorite:

Last month, we held a remix competition for our track "Peculiar" off of the new album Down The Doors. With dozens of great entries coming in from around the globe, it took us several days to sift through the wonderful interpretations. After careful deliberation between Ryan and Emily, and with the helping ear of other musical colleagues, the winner of the remix competition has been chosen.
This remix was jumping! Between the synth riffs, the funk bass line, the simple-yet-effective drum lines, and the buildup at the chorus, we're excited to hear this on the dancefloor very soon. Check it out.
We really enjoyed the slower tempo of this remix. The idea of weaving the organic/relaxing elements with the vocals worked well, and he definitely used the violins in unique ways. This dub remix was very reminiscent of Beats Antique, and something we hope to share at lounges and chill-spaces. Take a listen.
Congratulations to both Ryan and Duke for their wonderful remixes! Ryan will be receiving a copy of Pro Tools 10, and both Ryan and Duke will be receiving the entire Chance's End catalog including our limited-edition vinyl single.
We would like to thank each of the entrants for putting in time and energy into creating all of your wonderful remixes. As a small token of our thanks, we will be sending you all download prize packs. Thanks again!
