The Dagu road trip
Back in December 2018, we embarked on a road trip with composer and multi-instrumentalist Richard Harvey, to visit some very special drums. We decided not only to film the experience but later to record these drums, sparking the beginning of our Creative Soundpack: Dagu—Chinese theater drums.
Meet David Newman
Composer legend David Newman will give you a closer look at the instruments of a symphonic orchestra in Orchestral Tools' new Instrumentation Series. We will talk about the components of the instrument, its role in the orchestra and the common playing techniques. New episodes every Thursday 8pm PST!
David Newman talks about the Violin to which David has a personal connection. In his twenties he played the violin as a studio musician for 20th century fox and countless movies.
