Taiko Saito´s Berlin Mallet Group is the only improvising mallet ensemble of it’s kind. The members are former students of David Friedman who have since become consummate vibraphonists and marimbists and artistsin their own right. They all perform, compose and teach. The ensemble plays compositions by David Friedman, Taiko Saito, as well as performing spontaneous compositions created in the moment.
Each player brings his and her own artistic personality, as well as an advanced team spirit to the group. The combined cultural identity also plays an important role in the eclectic sound of the compositions and improvisations. The players represent Japan, USA, Germany and Austria.
Berlin Mallet Group has just finished it’s first recording, which will soon be released on Malletmuse Records.
