Unplugged Sundays @ the Michener 
Caryn Lin, Electric Violinist
The Science of Sound

Sunday, October 22nd

1:00 - 3:00 pm 

Advanced registration is required. 


"Unlike the music defined by pure genre, Lin's only limits are those of her electric violin." New York Post
Caryn Lin is a classically trained violinist who became an electric violinist and music innovator. At a recent performance, she jokingly described her piece as "Native American, West African, techno-tribal, Australian, cosmic, Celtic, dance, rock, Egyptian." Years of concentrated experimentation with sound results in a live show that is the musical equivalent of light traveling through a prism – it is spectacular! Caryn plays four, five, and six string electric violins, using looping techniques to create short, on-the-spot recordings of her voice, percussion instruments, and other sounds. The sound is transformed through her violins and modern technology; 3-D sound waves become visible, and her music literally comes to life before your eyes and ears!

Caryn has played everywhere from Lincoln Center to Six Flags; the Kimmel Center to the Crayola Factory; an 800th anniversary of a monastery in the French Alps to thousands of kids in school auditoriums. Her music has been featured on MTV's "The Real World," and on 150 international radio stations including Sirius/XM satellite. She appeared performing in the movie Philadelphia. Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to see Caryn perform at the Michener!

Following the performance, feel free to explore all of the Museum activities as part of our Art in the Schools Family Day.
