The Drum & Flute OsmosisGasper Bertoncelj – drums Avichai Ornoy – flute, soprano saxGasper Bertoncelj and Avichay Ornoy join forces and inspirations to explore the modern and sophisticated sounds of the oldest known musical instruments: drum and flute. Ornoy and Bertoncelj met in The City College of City University of New York about 15 years ago and they collaborate frequently ever since. Ornoy's rich classical background infused with deep jazz and world music roots expands flutes known horizons to new levels. As if this isn't enough, Avichai adds different sounds with alto flute and soprano saxophone to better present the variable of music genres showcased on the concerts. Bertoncelj on the other hand, experienced and acknowledged jazz drummer with expertise in other genres as well, specializes on the minimalistic number of drums – mainly snare drum to which he adds bass drum and cymbals. Mainly through dynamics and his amazing brush work he brings a giant palette of sounds and grooves to the music. The concert features original compositions by Bertoncelj and Ornoy themselves as well as classical compositions, world music grooves and good old jazz standards. All arranged to feature drum and flute. As a special treat the duo added American composer Doug Hammod's beautiful contemporary pieces for flute-drums duo recently recorded by Ornoy and Hammond's disciple Bertoncelj. The Drum and Flute Osmosis doesn't run out of fresh sounds, musical ideas and beautiful melodies. Depending on the occasion the Drum and Flute Osmosis stretches to trio with bass and even to quartet format, adding harmony to create magical moments throughout the concert.YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL2Fvhg7Yh87L_gUw_QVHzIc2Z84EMpcJj...After the video was seen by the composer, the great Doug Hammond, he wrote to us: "That was the most beautifully played I could imagine. This is for my mother. I thank both of you and I could not have imagined such a profound drum part for this..That is simply immaculate. Can I send you another solo flute piece? No one has played it so perfectly clear with the feeling. Thanks a million, Doug Hammond"
