Aussie DJ Alison Wonderland is one talented musician. Aside from being one of the fastest growing names in EDM and the colorfully lit world of electronic music festivals, she’s also an accomplished cellist. Alison (real name Alex Sholler) took to her SoundCloud on Sunday morning to showcase her classical music abilities, performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Cello Suite #2 Prelude" on her wooden stringed instrument.
As heard in the SoundCloud stream below, which was recorded in Sholler’s bedroom, the young multi-instrumentalist proves that she hasn’t lost a bit of her cello abilities since trading her bow in for a DJ booth. The nearly four-minute piece is played with both precision and melodic warmth as she makes Bach’s Suite her own.
The famous DJ has become one of the more popular names in EDM since coming onto the scene in the early 2010s. She recently launched her own radio show via SiriusXM Radio titled “Radio Wonderland.” She also announced the lineup for her upcoming Wonderland Scarehouse Project event on Sunday, which is set to take place this fall back in her native country of Australia.
Wonderland returned to Diplo’s Mad Decent Block Party at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sunday evening as part of her 2017 North American headlining tour schedule. Other notable stops on her fall run include two nights at Seattle’s Showbox, New York City’s Terminal 5 and even Tyler The Creator’s Camp Flog Gnaw festival in late October. Tickets to all the mentioned shows and other select concerts on her fall tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
