New Yorker brings innovative violin to gooimusic

mygooi names Yut Chia to music channel’s advisory board

DES MOINES, Iowa (July 19, 2015)

Yut Chia, who gooimusic’s creative director Jared Freiburg says does things with a violin that have never been done before, has been named to the YouTube channel’s advisory board, Freiburg said. Samples of Chia’s work are available on gooimusic (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R_W0Jyz3in0).

gooimusic (https://www.youtube.com/c/gooimusic) is mygooi’s disruptive and creative YouTube channel presenting innovative music from around the world.

“Yut is one of the most talented and professional musicians I have ever worked with,” said Freiburg. “His sense of musicality is unparalleled. He is a great addition to our advisory board because of his unique style of contemporary playing that goes beyond his considerable classical capabilities. He is becoming a notable source of entertainment and really encapsulates what gooimusic is trying to spread across the globe.”

Freiburg said he was introduced to Yut by mygooi’s Viral Development Officer, Johnny Krohn, who heard the New Yorker playing in a subway. “His talent was obviously gooi, so I was convinced I needed to play with him,” Freiburg said. “We got together early one morning and jammed.”

Chia, 22, plays as “Yut and the Hot Four.” “The Hot Four are the violin strings,” he says, “When I do a performance it’s different people, different set up, etc. We work hard to create amazing music, shows, etc. We love performing, and we plan on being one of the biggest instrumental groups in the world!” His Facebook page is www.facebook.com/YutandTheHotFour.

Chia says he seeks to make people interact with the music he plays. “When you go to a classical concert you have to sit down, be quiet. When I play, I want people to dance, feel free in clap in the middle of a piece, scream, basically feel the music and interact with it.
“The role of gooimusic is to spread amazing music like mine to all the people in the world and show them something amazing.”

While Chia’s music is strictly instrumental, he uses electronic back tracks and beats he creates. “I infuse Electronic Dance Music with the violin.”
Chia began playing violin by taking private lessons. After his first year, he self-taught for a few years before attending Queens College (City University of New York) to perfect his technique.

mygooi adds Indo-Jazz fusion to gooimusic playlist

Professor Mohan Narayanan named chair of channel’s advisory board

DES MOINES, Iowa June 19, 2015

gooimusic, mygooi’s disruptive and creative YouTube music channel (https://www.youtube.com/c/gooimusic) has added tracks by Indian composer and music scholar Mohan Narayanan to its playlist, said gooimusic creative director Jared Freiburg.

The works, played by Narayanan, violinist Athira Krishna and pianist Amba Punjabi, combine traditional south Indian classical music with western Jazz and classical rhythms.

Narayanan, 79, will chair gooimusic’s advisory board, noted mygooi CEO Paul N. Greenwood. gooimusic is a subsidiary of gooi LLC.

“Mohan is well known in India for his fusion compositions, and movie and theater scores,” said Freiburg. “The scores draw on Indian tradition and Western themes – from Bach and Mozart to Jazz. And while he and his students have brought cross-over music to Germany, Austria, the U.S. and Canada, he has not received the international recognition his talent and accomplishments deserve. We’re looking to bring broader attention to his works through gooimusic.”

Narayanan’s works on gooimusic includes links to several short movies he has scored.

“The reach of your site…beyond imagination,” wrote Narayanan after his first video was posted on gooimusic. “It is not even four hours and the video has already 300 likes, means about x2 = 600 viewers. This is simply fantastic!”

In addition to being a composer and teacher, Narayahannis a technologist, writer of plays and novels, management consultant and professor for management studies. He founded Chennai, India – based Bhagyanjali Global Media (http://www.bhagyanjaliglobal.com/), which produces Tamil films.

Narayanan connected with world music during 10 years in Germany as a project manager and engineer with Siemens, working on the technology of music-harmonics, frequencies and chords. He has traveled widely (he’s currently on passport number 20) for Siemens Germany and the TVS Group India. When seeing films in countries including Poland and Bulgaria, while he didn’t know the language, he saw how music was being used. “I also collected music wherever I went,” he said.

Music has become a hobby that produced a sound lab that includes an archive of music, equipment and books, which he readily shares with interested students. It includes stacks of Andean folk music, Hebrew melodies, Irish chants, American Indian spiritual songs, Gregorian chants, music of Iran, Peru, China, Jazz, Classical, Indian; the list goes on. “You take any world music, any sound, I have it,” he says.

Composing “just for the hell of it,” he wonders how a raaga (a mode in classical Indian music) sounds with a piano? What Western chords support Carnatic (the classical style of Southern India) music? Where does harmony fit in Indian music? His answers to these questions are there to be heard.

Narayanan says he resents music being “over commercialized” or “monetized”. “Of course, money is important.,” he adds, “but there are some important things in life like religion, sharing knowledge, music, helping others etc. which should not be used just for the sake of making money.”

Names dynamic teenage musician Jared Freiburg as creative director

DES MOINES, Iowa (PRWEB) June 04, 2015

“We’ve named Jared Freiburg creative director of the channel,” Greenwood said. “Though young, he’s incredibly talented and creative as a composer, singer and instrumentalist. He’s already accomplished much, and has ideas and the skill to fuse diverse threads into new sounds. We’re looking to reinvigorate world music.”

One area which Freiburg is working on is fusing traditional Indian music with jazz. “We’re looking to give well known Hindu themes a more modern twist,” he says.

“I’m thrilled to be part of gooimusic,” adds Freiburg. “I have a passion for jazz, but we will pay more attention to creative talents from all over the world who haven’t received the recognition they deserve. There are vast pools of talent, new talent that will bring all types of music to our followers. We will respect them all and share a broad spectrum of visions.”

Freiburg, 18, was selected as a vocal soloist at the Grammy awards in February, one of 32 students the GRAMMY gI_89952_Jared and Hunter HayesFoundation® chose from across the United States for its prestigious 2015 GRAMMY Camp® — Jazz Session. A recent graduate of Valley High School in West Des Moines, he will be studying in the fall at California State University, Long Beach, with a double major in music education and performance.
