Lobsters

August 31st, 2011

This is a great EP guys. I have been following VLEK for awhile now, and just visited their site and ever since been listening to this combination of ragged and hi fi by Squeaky Lobster, of fat synth sounds alongside dirty hip hop kicks and snares, the Arabic scales. The fourth track on this EP titles Aarnivalkea is my favorite. The photo shows Sqeaky LobstersWill-O’-The-Wisp’ EP covers drying. The EP has been released Aug 1st, and you could purchase it here.

East meets West

November 22nd, 2010

We have shot a 30 minutes film of the New Andalusian orchestra during sound check before a concert in one of the most important auditoriums in Israel. It is fascinating to see these great musicians, so different in mentality and approach to music and life. Most of the musicians play from sheet music on classical western instruments- Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass and Oboe. These are accompanied by a traditional ensemble of classic eastern instruments- Oud, Kamanja (knee violin), Kanoun, Ney, Darbuka and Tar all of whom play without sheet music, through the knowledge that has been passed on to them from hundreds of generations. TO watch all three parts.


The new Andalusian orchestra

November 20th, 2010

The New Andalusian Orchestra is the successor of the previous Israeli Andalusian Orchestra which had been terminated in February 2009 due to the dismissal of all musicians and workers, most of whom refused to be dissuaded and therefore continued to hold rehearsals and concerts in a steadfast struggle for government recognition and public funding.

This struggle was met with success when the Israeli Ministry of Culture granted the orchestra recognition on February 28, 2010. This was accompanied by the decision to retroactively fund the orchestra for their activities in 2009 and to veto the Ashdod Municipality’s petition to transfer these funds to their service.

Most of the musicians play from sheet music on classical western instruments- Violin, Viola, Cello, Contrabass and Oboe. These are accompanied by a traditional ensemble of classic eastern instruments- oud, Kamanja (knee violin), Kanoun, Ney, Darbuka and tar all of whom play without sheet music, through the knowledge that has been passed on to them from hundreds of generations.

In a week or so we`ll bring to you a filmed general rehersal that took place before a special event in the memory of Joe Amar. This rehearsal was filmed with a consumer videocam using the camera`s mic only.
