Caryn Lin: Electronic Violinist
Caryn Lin, 'Other worldly electric violinist,' plays her electric violins and uses sound effects and looping to create short, on-the-spot recordings or her violin, voice, and percussion. Layers of sound over deceptively simple melodies result in music that is both otherworldly and totally catchy, mesmerizing and unique! It is eclectic, combing New Age, World, and Classical.
Foreign Film: Caesar Must Die
As part of a rehabilitative prison program, inmates at a high-security prison in Rome prepare for a public performance of Shakespeare's ''Julius Caesar''. As they rehearse, the prisoners, many of whom are long termers and lifers for serious crimes, find that the classic play has both a striking resonance and contrast to their confined lives.
