DRUMMER/INSTRUMENTALIST, COMPOSER, LYRICIST
My name is Mick Carazo and I’m a professional drummer based in the beautiful Caribbean Coast of Colombia. I am currently available for collaborations and private classes.
I come from a family of artists; painters, photographers, designers, singers, and writers. I have fed all my life from all artforms, ultimately channeling them into my music. I appreciate the lyricism of classical literature and poetry, the vibrance of psychedelia, the otherworldliness of the surrealists.
I have worked as a professional musician for over 10 years. I have experience performing, composing, and writing Colombian folk music, rock, jazz, and others.
I started my solo project Solitude in 2019 as a way to find a free, creative, and compositional path to experiment and manifest different musical ideas.
My inspiration for this project spawns from Neo Folk, experimental music and sounds, avant-garde, the alternative among others, plus my own real, hyperreal and unrealized experiences.
My vision is artistic, critical — both self-conscious and not.
PRIVATE CLASSES AVAILABLE
DRUMMING & MUSIC THEORY
Music is my full-time job and passion. It is my priority to be the best drummer I can be, but also a reliable professional.
As a drummer, I have enjoyed working with large folkloric ensembles, progressive rock bands, and solo projects. I respect tradition and folklore, and at the same time feel intrigued by projects enriched with an alchemy of experimentation and fusion.
I have studied music theory and the fundamentals of music since my teenage years in conservatories, and later during college. I can write, read and compose music for various instruments and genres. I have also written lyrics in English and Spanish in collaboration with my bandmates.
Please contact me via form to inquire about hours and rates. My rates vary depending on distance and availability of instruments.
