(St. John’s, NL) – ECMA Nominee, Rozalind MacPhail is pleased to announce a new artist partnership with Gemeinhardt Musical Instruments, LLC.
It’s turning out to be a big year for NL’s flute looper, Rozalind MacPhail. She is the first-ever Canadian artist sponsored by the Gemeinhardt family, one of the music industry’s largest exclusive manufacturer of flutes and piccolos. MacPhail will be hitting the road with her Gemeinhardt flutes across Eastern Canada as she performs and teaches music clinics at Long & McQuade stores this Spring. Tour and clinic dates will be announced soon.
Gemeinhardt President & CEO, David Pirtle says, ”Gemeinhardt is thrilled to sponsor the creative artistry of Canada’s looping flutist, Rozalind MacPhail. She is a dynamic and gifted performer who inspires through her lively audio-visual performances and interactive music workshops.”
Innovative NL multi-instrumentalist, Rozalind MacPhail recently took home an East Coast Music Award for Electronic Recording of the Year and MusicNL’s Female Artist of the Year. One of the world’s leaders in flute looping, this creative mastermind blends effected flute, electronics, voice, omnichord and silent film through Ableton Live. MacPhail has created music for film and live performance as well as releasing several albums of original work. She explores new ways to combine image and sound, in works that speak honestly of place, person and the human experience.
“I began learning on a Gemeinhardt flute and I’m delighted that I’ll be performing with these beautiful instruments. To be sponsored by a progressive company like Gemeinhardt is a dream come true. It takes my live show to a whole new level. Not only does Gemeinhardt make great flutes but they support unconventional flutists like myself. That’s a company I am proud to stand behind.” – Rozalind MacPhail
