Artist Spotlight: Caryn Lin (Touring from Easter Pennsylvania/New Jersey Young Audiences Affiliate)

Electric violinist Caryn Lin jokingly described a musical piece as "Native American, West African, techno-tribal, Australian, cosmic, Celtic, dance, rock, Egyptian." There is no previously defined category for Caryn's unique genre. A classicaly trained violinist who became an elebric violiist and education innovator, Caryn finds influence in everything from baroque to rock. Caryn started violin lessons at age 9 and earned a bachelor's degree in violin performance from Northwestern University. Playing her 4, 5, and 6 string electric violins, Caryn uses looping techniques to create short, on-the-spot recordings of her voice, percussion instruments, and other sounds. As she plays the violin, the recorded snippets play back in a continous loop adding fascinating layers of sound over deceptively simple melodies. The resutling music is otherworldly and totally catchy, mesmerizing and unique.
