Nick Revel, a violinist and composer, plays in an hour-long concert Sunday June 30 for Darien Library’s latest “Music in the Stacks” concert. — an announcement from Darien Library

The concert starts at 5 p.m. Refreshments will be served. Revel is also an improviser and educator, grew up in Wilton 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.
