Mr Houck has studied for many years ritual magick as well as many other ways to use and control energy.These procedures and techniques in the craft of violin making bring something new to the table.Everything which is now science was at one time considered magic.Professional musicians are always looking for ways to improve their playing and also their instrument which is the most important tool in their life.Many people who have played a Houck instrument and even a freshly completed violin have said there was a maturity to the newly made instruments.It was even said by Mr Razvan Stoica that there was a magic to them.
