Possessing an incredibly unique instrument that is at once both flexible and fragile, Fruiterman's expressiveness truly knows no boundary. A brilliant composer in his own right, his voice provides a focal point of rare caliber, single-handedly altering the ensemble's texture at will. We've not encountered anything like it anywhere else, and we'd be crushed if we did. Observe him in action below on his own co-arrangement of the obscure hi lili.
