“Nathalie Joachim and Allison Loggins-Hull are Flutronix, a critically acclaimed pair of fresh and eclectic flutists who are paving the way from their classical roots to the future of music. Performing the works of notable pioneers of new music alongside their own creations, Flutronix displays an innovative combination of flute and mixed media elements. Their original compositions, described by NewMusicBox as 'equally indebted to and comfortable in several musical lineages,' navigate daring forms of popular, experimental, and contemporary classical music while implementing electronics and digital effects. The duo pays tribute to groundbreaking work by exposing audiences to composers who have contributed to new bodies of literature that expand the language of the flute.

“Flutronix has performed at leading new music venues including Galapagos Art Space, The Tank and WNYC’s Greenespace. Hailed for their innovative programming, the duo produces Flutronix and Friends, a collaborative new music series hosted most recently at The Cell Theater. Their self-titled debut album, 'a masterful collage of electronic and acoustic music, woven into multi-faceted textures,' (Black Grooves, 2011) was released in October 2010 on the duo’s label. Flutronix recordings have been broadcast on WQXR’s Q2, WKCR and other stations nationally. Additionally, the duo has undertaken several entrepreneurial endeavors including the publishing of their original works and the launch and hosting of Real Flutists, an online web series sponsored by The Flute Center of New York.
