On Saturday, July 26, 2008, at 7 PM, the Museum of Making Music, located at 5790 Armada Drive in Carlsbad, welcomes Mark Wood — a highly acclaimed international recording artist, rock violinist, composer and instrument innovator — as he presents a look at the modern electric violin and a concert featuring his own creations that have become a symbol of the rock and electric violin revolution. Tickets are $15 for general admission, $12 for museum members and $7 for students. For tickets and information, contact (760) 438-5996, ext. 212 or visit the Museum Of Making Music website.
Wood's musical retrospective of the modern electric violin features nearly 50 creations from his early experiments building electric violins. Mark recounts crafting violins as early as age 10. A progressive development of prototypes would eventually become the model for the 7-string Viper violin, a symbol of the modern rock violin revolution.
Mark will also make a special artifact donation to the Museum's permanent collection.
In conjunction with this event, the Museum of Making Music will be giving away five pairs of tickets to a special bonus performance on August 2nd featuring Mark Wood at San Diego's Brick By Brick concert venue.
