The Akai Electric Wind Instrument or EWI as it’s known can be thought of as a type of Electric Saxophone. It is played much like an acoustic Saxophone yet it can sound like anything. This rarely seen Instrument was invented by Nyle Steiner and has been around since the mid 80’s. The EWI and its Trumpet counterpart - the EVI ( Electric Valve Instrument ) has been used extensively in Studios and Movie / TV Soundtracks. Inventor Nyle Steiner has played the EVI in the Soundtracks of Apocalypse Now, Ghost, Close Encounters, The Color Purple, Fatal Attraction,Star Trek III, Knotts Landing, Columbo, Dallas & many others as well as many more EWI/EVI players such as Mike playing on hundreds of Album & Sound Tracks. Though you may have not seen the EWI & EVI Instruments , you’ve probably heard them numerous times. Mike has been playing the EWI for several years live on stage as well as in the studio session circit in the USA. Currently looking for ANY music work in the UK, Europe!
