Trust. It’s all about trust here. To be invited into an artist’s creative process is a tremendous privilege. No matter where you are in your project, Rootstock can offer advice, input and insight. We invite you to trust us to add that bit of #rootmagik to further realize or amplify your vision.
With assigning musicians to projects comes a delicate balance of considering technical chops, personality, and those uniquely individual, and oftentimes inexplicable, contributions that will best pair with the client’s vision. Rootstock’s experience and large roster of musicians ensures that you receive the perfect pairing every time.
Music preparation is a journey, a deeply personal exploration that is traveled during the process of creating. Whether the path is transcription, composition, orchestration or arrangement-based, Rootstock is excited to support. While our demographic of musicians has a distinctive string presence, our depth of experience extends beyond the reach of working with string players; and is inclusive of music preparation for both traditional and non-traditional instrumentation, from solo to full symphonic orchestra, acoustic, electric and other avenues waiting to be uncovered. Be it on stage, in the studio or on the screen, we look forward to accentuating your creative genius with our #rootmagik.
We consider the stage as holy ground: a sanctuary of creativity, a safe space for creative expression, an oasis of juxtaposed intention and possibility. In a live show, the element of collaboration is especially potent because the performance extends well beyond the stage–the audience, too, becomes a crucial part of the circle. At Rootstock we live for live performance.
When recording, the gift is in having the time and spaciousness to curate a nuanced and intentional experience for the listener. Our cohort of musicians is well-versed and wonderfully experienced in the recording environment, and maintain a work ethic that is efficient, professional and feels like family all at the same time. When paired with our music preparation, we can offer an even more distinctive sound, which allows a greater opportunity to uplift the integrity of your creative voice and vision.
