Darien Library’s concert series Music in the Stacks continues with violist Nick Revel on Sunday, June 30 at 5 p.m. in the Louise Parker Berry Community Room. Refreshments will be served.
Nick Revel, a violist, improviser, composer, and educator grew up in Wilton Conn. and is now based in Sunnyside, Queens. His debut album of all original compositions and improvisations will take you on a musical journey through the inside of his mind and break preconceived notions of what a viola can do in a constantly-morphing sound-scape of genres. With the help of a microphone and speakers, a powerful audio program, and intricately programmed auto-triggering loops and live-processing, Nick has transformed his album into a solo show filled with wild textures and layers you've never heard before.
