Mario Caroli Drum Kit
Yesterday, I had the opportunity to record Mario Caroli, the great flutist.
My project has been to create a library of samples for a "Mario Caroli" drum kit, for the Ultrabeat rhythm synthesizer & step sequencer (or actually for any drum machine). During a 20-minute recording session, Mario listened to sounds from a "classic hip-hop remix drum kit", and imitated them with his flute and his talent. I recorded the session in ProTools, the main system in Huseac studios.
I still have to edit the samples. I will make the whole final set available on the internet, Mario agreed with that. I will let you know as soon as everything is ready!
A few Mario Caroli recordings available in the USA:
Mario Caroli is the Fromm guest of the Harvard Group for New Music in 2007/2008. He will come back for a concert on May 24th, 2008.
