Igor Iofe on SoundBetter

I am a classically trained composer working in film, theatre and experimental music. Also I play trumpet and I sing in various styles. My strong points are flexibility in genre and style, strong academic education and modern approach to creating music. Currently my focus in music is Armenian traditional duduk repertoire which I play on trumpet.

  • 'Cold Wind' release on the 31st of JulyJul 15, 2020

    Igor focuses on Armenian traditional duduk repertoire which he plays on trumpet.

    Igor brings the warmth of the duduk's sound and its ornamentation into his trumpet playing. This version of the Armenian folk tune 'Hovern Elan' which can be translated as 'cold wind' is the result of collaboration with Pim van den Heuvel. You can already pre-save it: http://gate.fm/oGHW2h
