Flutronix is excited to announce that on August 13th, they will be releasing a new EP, City of Breath, a collection of four tracks that highlight the duo’s classical flute playing, while staying true to their unique urban art-pop style. City of Breath features several original Flutronix pieces, as well as minimalist composer Steve Reich’s iconic Vermont Counterpoint. The album captures sounds that are cinematic, hypnotic, rhythmic and ethereal. Primarily instrumental, City of Breath is the duo’s way of nodding to the flute community at large and paying tribute to their teachers and the musical innovators who came before them. Joachim was recruited by the Grammy winning Classical ensemble, eighth blackbird, earlier this year and relocated to Chicago while remaining committed to Flutronix.
Their previous long player was 2.0, which was co-produced by Joachim and Loggins-Hull with Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu) of Studio G Brooklyn. One featured track was produced by legendary hip hop producer Ski Beatz. Guest artists include drummer Joe Blaxx and the Melodia Women’s Choir of NYC.
