I am in the final stages of recording my new album "Being". This project will be released on vinyl, high resolution Wav download, Thumb drives and also CD.
The music features several instruments along with the Stick such as Hand Pan, Didgeridoo, Shruti Box, Singing bowls orchestra and some vocal chanting. There are a couple Stick solos and several layered musical passages.
The style is wide open with influences from many cultures. The main concept of this project is to play music that comes through inspiration of the moment with less conscious thinking. A good portion of the music is improvised. The sounds conveying the idea of just "Being" along with the vast possibilities of other beings in our universe. Ultimatly, we are one.
"Bob Culbertson is a virtuoso of his craft. His concert was absolutely beautiful and entertaining. The Carnegie attendees were telling me weeks later how amazed they wereby his performance and instrument. He will be back."
-Mary Leb, Music Director Carnegie Hall WV
"Bob Culbertson is the Segovia Of The Stick"
"Four Stars"…."Culbertson displays ferocious technique, handling the contrapuntal demands and rhythmic intricaciesof each piece with the command of a virtuoso. The rich warm sound of the Acoustick is captured beautifully. " -Downbeat Jazz Magazine
"Culbertson's performance, which includes various expression techniques and a generous amount of improvisation, is mesmerizing, to say the least."
