  • Jeffrey Young is known for his experimental violin work.
It's violins, violins and more violins at Exploded View on Thursday, April 9. Leading the pack of violinists will be Jeffrey Young, an experimental violinist, composer, and laptop musician from Brooklyn, who will perform original works and a homage to fellow N.Y.-area violinist Paul Pinto.

"I'll perform a quirky selection of my own music for solo violin and live electronics ... including in-your-face theatrics, unabashed shredding and oceanic soundscapes," Young said in an e-mail.

"I'll also play a short piece for speaking violinist and retuned violin by Paul Pinto, a fellow member of New York’s thingNY composer-performer collective."

In addition to Young's "Violins and Noise in the Magical Kingdom of Dust," Tucson's Robert Anthony Villa will perform the 2nd and 3rd movements from Ysaÿe’s "Violin Sonata No. 2," followed by improvisation using a range of themes and inspiration.

Algae and Tentacles will also be throwing some violin action into the mix with frontman John Melillo being backed up by three violinists: Samantha Bounkeua, Becky Pattowiz, and Villa.

You can catch Jeffrey Young's "unabashed shredding," along with Algae and Tentacles and Villa's solo work, this Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be sold at the door at Exploded View, located at 197 E. Toole Ave., for $5 the day of the show.
