Welcome to Red Room Audio’s Traveler Series, an ongoing collection of boutique sample libraries featuring traditional world instruments faithfully recorded on location from destinations around the globe.
Traveler Series libraries focus on delivering a genuine purity that can only be captured where the instrument and musical style originated, preserving its true character and history. We seek out a region’s most skilled and renowned performers; amazing folks with stories and bloodlines who live and breathe traditional provincial music. We leave with an education and appreciation for their culture and the role these beautiful instruments serve (as well as a tale or two of our own). We hope our Traveler Series adds an authentic native spirit to your music.
Gypsy fiddle playing is known the world over for its passion, romance and virtuosity and the music is synonymous with the campfire and the open road. Gypsy fiddlers tend to be highly skilled. Their playing swoops dramatically from the highest to the lowest positions, using cascades of arpeggios, chromatic runs, harmonics, pizzicato, exaggerated vibrato and extreme ornamentation.
For our Gypsy Fiddle we traveled to Sofia, Bulgaria where we had the pleasure of working with renowned violinist Stoimen Peev. Stoimen is a member of the elite Sofia Soloists and Sofia Quartet ensembles as well as the Sofia Session Orchestra & Choir and has performed classical and traditional Bulgarian music all over the world. Our lively sessions were superbly directed by co-producer George Strezov and engineer Ivan Boshev at “The Bakery” studios in Sofia.
