BRATTLEBORO — A violinist whose notes soar in and out of bass music to make a distinguishing sound of his own is performing locally again.

Josh Teed will play at Third Eye Collective at 80 Flat St. on Saturday as part of a tour supporting his new album, “The Journey East,” which came out Friday. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the music starts at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased for $30 at thirdeyecollectivebrattleboro.com or $35 at the door.

Shastin Joynt, one of the three founders of Third Eye Collective, said Teed is traveling around the United States for the tour.

“He’s amazing,” Joynt said. “He’s a very talented artist.”

Teed, who is from New Hampshire, is relocating to Tennessee. He’s hitting all these places in New England before he moves, Joynt said.

His new seven-track extended play album features collaborations with lyricists and producers. Conscious Electronic, a website dedicated to the genre of music, described it as “a full-on sonic journey into eastern terrains, ethereal textures and vibrant tones, and undulating bass.”

“Josh Teed is a versatile, classically trained, and technical musician,” the website states. “He picked up the violin at the tender age of three years old, going on to win the Florida Fiddle Championship at age 9.

“Upon discovering electronic music, Teed began exploring his talents further and intertwining them with his newfound interest. His productions pay tribute to some of his electronic influences such as Charlesthefirst, CloZee, and Govinda while still remaining unique and properly showcasing his vast expertise in instrumentalism.”

The Brattleboro show will use a speaker system from Hennessy Sound Design, the same used for Third Eye Collective’s Deja Vu festival in June. Opening acts include Shacksies, Kreesay, Spacegangsta and XY Goat.

The Pit Mistress food truck and art vendors also will be on site. Joynt said anyone who wants to vend can email her at thirdeyecollectivecontact@gmail.com or message her through social media.

Before starting Third Eye Collective, members of the group formed Soundlandings, which organized bass music events about two years ago at The Stone Church in downtown Brattleboro. Joynt said Soundlandings is now used for promotional work.

Teed performed at one of Soundlandings’ Church of Bass shows at The Stone Church. He also was a special guest at one of Third Eye Collective’s more recent shows.

The plan is to continue organizing concerts in the future even though Third Eye Collective will be leaving Flat Street in September. Joynt previously said her team has networked with many people who want to share their space for events.
