Tiffany Smith Interviews Tina Guo

Tina Guo is a cellist and erhuist known for her characteristic style of performance. She performed the electric cello solos written by Hans Zimmer for Wonder Woman's theme in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

I love how Wonder Woman carries thousands of years of ancient mythological wisdom and combat training as well as awesome high-tech weaponry. I’ve always strived to be like the ultimate warrior princess demigoddess she is, as demonstrated in my old MySpace username being ‘WarriorCellist,’ haha! I don’t have indestructible bracelets or a Lasso of Truth, but I do have an Electric Cello with a very sharp endpin.

Being asked by Hans to perform the new Wonder Woman theme was surreal! When I play my Electric Cello, my warrior alter ego kicks in. I love my classical cello too, of course, and am really a big dork in real life—but screaming on the electric cello puts me in touch with the aggressive, brazen and animalistic parts within myself.[1]

Guo trained at the USC Thornton School of Music and toured with Cirque du Soleil from 2011 to 2013. She has performed as a soloist with the San Diego Symphony, the State of Mexico National Symphony, the Thessaloniki State Symphony in Greece, the Petrobras Symphony in Brazil, and the Vancouver Island Symphony in Canada. Her albums include recordings of video game music from Skyrim, The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, and film/TV music from Game of Thrones, Gladiator, Forrest Gump, Schindler's List, and The X Files, among others.
