We’ve been big fans of Yut and the Hot Four since we first met in New York last year. That’s why we couldn’t help but post their fabulous cover of Lana Del Ray’s Young and Beautiful. It only takes 5 seconds of listening to Yut Chia on the violin to see why he has our gooi stamp of approval.
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.
