"...a unique blend of classical music, hip-hop, electronic programming and soulful vocals reminiscent of neo-R&B stars like Erykah Badu." - Tad Hendrickson , The Wall Street Journal
Flutronix is Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull, two blazing young flutists who share their combined influences and aspirations to create a new kind of music greater than the sum of its creators.
"If you're ever in need of an energy boost, take a shot of Brooklyn-based cutting-edge doublet Flutronix. Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull, formally trained musicians, are redefining the flute and modernizing its sound by hauling it squarely into the world of popular music." - Richardine Bartee, MTVIggy.com
Their multiple roles as composers, performers and producers have moved them to collaborate with artists and ensembles from different realms and disciplines, including electronic music sensation Dan Deacon, hip-hop producer Ski Beatz and conductor/composer Pierre Boulez's International Contemporary Ensemble.
"Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull are both accomplished players of the instrument in their own right, but together as Flutronix the duo conjures something special." - Alexander Abnos, WNYC Gig Alert
Nathalie and Allison knew they had to master and manage every aspect of their work -- from music, publishing and business interests to sharing their hard-earned knowledge and experience - in order to achieve success on their terms. Flutronix publishes its own work and hosts an online web series, Real Flutists, which presents iconic flutists from all walks of music in an informal interview format where they share their insights directly with viewers. Much sought after as clinicians and educators, Flutronix has presented and lectured for the Juilliard School, the University of Wisconsin, the New York Flute Club, the Atlanta Flute Club and other institutions across the country. Flutronix also presents on-site workshops for university students to develop their confidence, know-how and awareness in developing and sustaining a music career in the 21st century. They teach musical workshops for grades K - 12 using guided discussion and live examples to demonstrate non-traditional performance techniques, including improvisation, sampling, extended range polyphonics and integration of electronics and surroundings.
