A touch of inspiration
Igudesman sees the new library as something of an instrumental spice rack – a set of unique musical flavors designed to inspire creativity. Although the flavors may seem extreme at first, he says, sometimes that’s what may be required to take a composition in a bold new direction. “Sometimes you just need a touch of inspiration to get messy and creative with music,” he said. “It can be that small detail that adds grit and realism to a more standard instrumental track, or it can be the basis of something totally wild and new. That’s what’s so exciting to me about it.”
“These sounds allow you to explore some impossible possibilities on the instrument,” he concluded. “You can hear that lineage of inspiration in all of this and I can’t wait to hear what it inspires in others.”
