Woke up to something super cool this morning. This is a dream come true for me! I collaborated with #Ableton Live Certified Trainer, AfroDJMac and he created a sound sample pack of my flute sounds for Ableton Live. There are lots of really cool sounds in this but you need Ableton 10 to use it. Check out the video and share the link with your Ableton friends. So neat! https://youtu.be/mjRBZo2t_1w
We’re excited to share LOVE AND LET BE. This labour of love will be available for free download on Bandcamp for the entire month of March. Download it here:
The exciting news it out! Read the press release:
ECMA NOMINEE, ROZALIND MACPHAIL ANNOUNCES NEW PARTNERSHIP WITH GEMEINHARDT MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, LLC
It’s an exciting day for this flute looper, a moment I’ve been working towards for many months now. I begin the first of three new recording projects which will have me digging into completely new territory and collaborating with people I greatly admire. We’re combining: two of my favourite instruments (a gorgeous Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments effected alto flute and omnichord), my favourite poem (“The Invitation” by Canadian author, Oriah Mountain Dreamer), one seriously inspiring yoga instructor (Jenn King of Moksha Yoga Halifax) and one of our favourite practices, Yin Yoga.
A taste of our audio-visual project, HOMELESS. It was an honour to perform effected/looped flute/backup vocals on this. We look forward to performing this lots more and recording/releasing a soundtrack for it in 2018! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z71Dx8GNTH8
Home sweet home in St. John’s after driving 6400 km. From St. John’s to Fredericton to Saint John to Evandale to Sussex to Bathurst to Lameque Island to Cheticamp Island to Stephenville to Burgeo and the long drive home. 2 awesome mechanics for the flat tire and cranky muffler, so many beautiful sunsets, inspiring music, my lovely Acadian family, delicious food and so much more. To top it all off? Arriving at home to discover a MusicNL nomination for Instrumental Recording of the Year for SUNSET SUNRISE! It feels good to be home with this warm heart and so many wonderful memories. To all of you who I was so fortunate to spend time with on the road, THANK YOU. Sending a special thanks to Floodstock and Third Shift – Art Works After Dark in Saint John for such amazing performing experiences. I can’t wait to tour through New Brunswick again.
“SUNSET SUNRISE is for connecting to our higher selves, for rising above daily concerns, to open into the space of Love…a beautifully serene way to invoke meditation. Rozalind MacPhail is a fountain of creativity, a plethora of surprises and colors.” – Viviana Guzman (The Flute View)
I used my Super 8 camera in Wilmington, North Carolina during my Cucalorus Festival Artist Residency and hand-processed three rolls of film with the help of Andre Silva and Mariah Kramer at UNCW Film Studies. Thanks to Dan Brawley in 2014 for giving me his precious rolls of film! “Now Accepting Food Stamps” was my reaction to feeling heartbroken about the poverty and racism I was witnessing down South. With all that’s been going on in our current world climate, it feels right to share this film. https://theovercast.ca/a-sneak-peak-of-rozalind-macphails-ecma-winning-audio-visual-project
