Gaby Castro Clarinet

When you hear someone mention the clarinet, what is the first thing you think of?

Do you think of the last time you played it in 5th grade band class?
Or maybe you think of high school marching band?
Perhaps you've thought, "I think someone plays that in an orchestra."
Or you might have asked, "Is that the one that's metal and you play sideways?"
(If it's this one, then no. You're thinking of the flute. 😉)

These are typically the types of responses I get when I've told people I play the clarinet. And I get it. It's hard to assume much else about that kind of an instrument like that when those have been your learned experiences.
But it’s that very thing that drives me to feature it in my music.
Even though I'm trained in classical music -- the genre of music you mostly hear clarinet played in --- I'm highly influenced by electronic, hip hop, experimental, modern, and popular genres of music. By fusing my musical training and genre influences together while trusting my ear along the way, I've shown people that good music goes beyond the instruments that play it.

I’m a huge nerd for anime and manga! In another life, I would have loved to be a manga artist. My current top 3 favorite animes are Attack on Titan, Hunter X Hunter, and Full Metal Alchemist.

I love to play video games in my spare time. I love a good fantasy solo adventure game like The Legend of Zelda or Final Fantasy, but I also really love multiplayer games like Mario Kart, Super Smash Brothers, and Overwatch.

I LOVE to travel. I have traveled to 11 countries outside the United States, and in 2021, I did a cross country road trip by myself from Los Angeles to Maine. My bucket list country to visit is Japan!

So… you down to work with me?
