Hey Jennifer, we've toured Vancouver and Toronto before but would love to do more.
As for when we started playing…


Evan - 14 for double bass
Josh – 16 for mandolin, maybe 8 for guitar
Kieran - 7
Kirin - 8...but absolutely zero practice until 14ish
Serge - 13

Q

What are the chances of you guys recording the fantastic covers up on YouTube?

Most of the videos have links to download the MP3, though I see some of them are broken. Until I can fix them, all the tracks are here (with download links):

Thanks! We'll try to make it up there soon and will keep you posted.

Q

Hey guys! What type of pickups/amplification do you use on your instruments? I just recently bought the headway "band" pickup for my violin and it picks up everything and there is a lot of feedback. I caught your last show in Chicago and have been a huge fan ever since!!!

Yeah, we haven't had great experiences with the Band.

Evan/bass - Fishman Full Circle pickup + F Deck HPF Pre preamp
Kirin/cello - Schertler STAT-C pickup + LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI
Kieran/violin - StringAmp & piezo pickups blended with a Mackie mixer + LR Baggs Para Acoustic DI

The Baggs DI can notch out tricky frequencies to help with feedback.

Q

When are you coming to Germany!?

Q

Hi! I just found you guys yesterday and now I'm officially hooked! I really like the band's name and I was wondering what was the inspiration/origin of it?
Anyway, love your music!
-Best Regards

Our freshman year in college, the name and acronym came to Josh simultaneously in a flash of inspiration. He and I (Evan) were just a duo at the time, but we both loved the sound of it so much that we immediately started calling ourselves Miracles of Modern Science. When we ended up as a band of classical strings, the name took on a layer of irony.
