Futureman - back in the studio with Pearl / Adams

Hot off his 2009 Grammy win, Futureman take his ear and passion for sound to the classical genre and only Pearl and Adams instruments can do the job: 

“ Here are a few photos taken from my I phone during the set up of the College Youth Orchestra session (Making of a New World Symphony.) It was so much fun!!  Everything sounded and looked great!! I felt like rolling in the percussion … was like rolling in an art show.   Really gorgeous instruments.  It is quite exciting to expand in sound, vision, and community involvement as an artist and to have the visionary support of the Pearl Drums [that] I love. Stay tuned as I keep you updated on my symphonic  progress!
Sincerely   - Futureman “  
About Futureman's Classical Works:
"Futureman Presents: The Black Mozart" is the 18th century story of a great musician's epic rise from slavery to chivalry.

"Futureman Presents: The Black Mozart" is a original American classical work that brings to life the lost history of classical music's 18th century American Hero, Le Chevalier de St. Georges. The legacy of a musician, who was often called "the American" or "the Black Mozart,"  unfolds in this eight movement symphony concertante which resurrects the drama of the Age of Enlightenment at the height of the World Slave Trade when the worst of times conspired with the best. The symphonic performance incorporates diverse musical and artistic talent to embody harmony through diversity. The Black Mozart Ensemble embraces the enduring message that the power of music can transcend all social and human barriers.
