Thanks Russell, it’s a great interview!
Thanks for all the replies here, I find it really interesting and inspiring that there are so many people interested in these more unusual instruments. Of course synths/samples and technology are amazing, and we all enjoy using them, but what I love about folk instruments is that playing them is often more about the simple enjoyment of making music, for no other purpose (although of course we can use them in commercial productions too).
I have A LOT of ethnic instruments, purchased all around the world. take a look at this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RKrE4MerPCI
I have sitar, erhu, dizi, guzheng, saz, balalaika, chinese liquin, vietnamese dan bau, duduk, frame drum, hulusi… and i hpe to get more!even if i’m not a master in any of them, I really like enjoy learning how to play them and to record them in my productions
Thanks for sharing the video, it was brilliant! I have the same attitude towards buying unusual instruments, I may not be a master of some of them, but I can quickly get a tune out of them, and usually my goal is just to be able to play something enough to be able to use it in some productions.
By the way, you are lucky to have so many talented twin brothers who helped you to make your film!
Congrats, George, you deserve it!
Hi Andy Besides my main instruments which are violins and keyboards, I play Oud, Greek Bouzouki, sometimes an indian Esraj. I also play percussion, so you can hear in my tracks darbuka, udu, djembe,finger cymbals, kalimba and so on. Sometimes also flutes (indian and irish).
Hi Marco, I listened to many tracks in your portfolio, they sound great! Keep the good work coming!
Thanks for the input so far, guys, it is very interesting!
