This is the state of things I’m Frank Stasio. So what happens when you take the classic a classical instrument like the flute and you add electronic sounds with a dash of hip hop and neo-soul vocals , you get flu try next . The duo composed of flu test Natalie Schwab sham and Alison logins Hull they’re in town for a concert tomorrow night on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill and a 2-year residency at UNC Natalee’s Wasim and Alison logins how our flu trying and they’re here with me now . Welcome to both of you . Good to have you here . Perhaps , but haven’t you . Thanks for having us tell us about this because you’re both classically trained clue lists Natalie talking about studying at Juilliard . What we , what was , what were your intentions . What do you expect to be .
I , it’s funny you know a lot of people say it’s basically born in the Juilliard lobby because I started going to their proper grams and as 10 years old so almost all of my musical training happen. Been there , and I love that , you know give me such an excellent foundation and in terms of my technique my school my understanding of the practice and the complexity of classical music , but I will also say that back wave act when Juilliard right across the street . There used to be a Tower Records and I as a really young child used to spend a lot of time and that Tower Records at listening sessions listening to our other kinds of music as well and so I sort of credit . Both of those as my , as my musical education and a big reason why food products is a big part of my life .
Also what about you.
Yeah , well I went to see purges which the fall and Westchester County and New York and there was really where I saw the most growth I guess you could say , as a young trained musician then I really all that art and my teacher there Tara Helen O’Connor and prior to that I had been really , really self-taught for the most part , when I became 15 years old I it really occurred to me that this is the thing that I really loved to do and I was like , you know what I’m really I’m I’m going to try to go over this thing and like figure out what this is all about , say , at that point I started taking private lessons and then I really got serious and was exposed to this whole world of you know , classical music in there and and what that means to be trained in that , in that , in that way , so I then went on to purchase a study retire who really took my plane to a whole nother level and then I did graduate school at NYU and composition composition , actually.
And so , what do you , what are you imagining especially at the tender age of 15 you love the music you want to participate in it and perform it. How are you imagining yourself or you on stage . Are you part of an orchestra you’re doing solo what hope , what’s your vision of yourself in that moment .
That’s a great question. I actually never saw myself in an orchestra per se , though . I’ve always loved orchestral music I’ve always loved the use of the flu and in many symphonic pieces , but for me I I didn’t really know how this would unfold you know but I I knew that it would be doing something creative and maybe a little bit different and that really didn’t come together until Natalie and I you know that period in our lives . Until we came into one another’s lives , but I just knew that I wanted to play and I knew that I wanted a life in music , not exclusively classical but just music in general . I’ve always been a lover of so many genres of music and I don’t know that when when I realized like okay , I can maybe do this loop thing and just play music that was it . Yeah .
Well , it’s a great story about how you U2 came together and then formed the sound that is flu Tron and we could talk about that , or alternatively , we could actually play some of it and hear it. Why don’t we do that , let’s listen to Lil for trying right now .
Okay. You know .
That is just a clip from the song she is by flu trial next from their album 2.0 Natalee’s Russian is on vocals and flute Alison logins Hull on flute flute performs Friday at 8 o’clock on the campus of UNC-Chapel Hill. Now we talk about how you U2 came together you are both in the New York City area , but apparently didn’t know each other , is that right .
Yeah , it’s funny because we really were just a year apart school and as anybody who plays an instrument growing up and and is that active in their region. It’s pretty usual that you know you know the kids around your age who are doing the same thing . And so it was funny that Alison I had grown up all these years and never really ran into each other at any food events and so I may be dating myself a little bit but about it .
Tower Records story David that that the still never survive , so I was on a social media platform called Myspace and at the time , you know you could have.
