STRING THE­ORY

EDGE - - KNOWLEDGE FAVOURITES -

Tina Guo was born in Shang­hai, but moved to the United States in 1990 when she was five. Since then, she has per­formed as a soloist in a host of or­ches­tras: the San Diego Sym­phony, Greece’s Thes­sa­loniki State Sym­phony and Brazil’s Petro­bras Sym­phony, among oth­ers. But she also played with the Foo Fight­ers at the 2008 Grammy Awards, and toured Aus­tralia as part of all-girl in­stru­men­tal band Metaphor the year prior. Guo has amassed an ex­ten­sive discog­ra­phy, in­clud­ing sev­eral solo al­bums, and con­trib­uted to the sound­tracks of films and TV shows such as Iron Man 2, In­cep­tion, and Fam­ily Guy. She is cur­rently part way through a world tour; de­tails can be found at tinaguo.com/tour.
