"I don't know where I'm going from here,
but I promise it won't be boring." (David Bowie)
Face to Face is my second solo album.
This album centres around the act and influence of a meeting with
another, a confluence which changes you.
Every single interaction you experience with someone else adds color to your inner world - A different perspective of reality, another vantage
point from which to view the world around and within, which is why a
confluence with another causes you to change, to develop and to grow. This album emerged from my many interactions with others in my life.The ones that truly changed me to my core. Like my meeting with Yael my dear partner, my first meetings with the compositions of David Bowie and Mordechai Zeira that moved me so, and most notably for this album, my meeting and merging with the members of the quartet. I have been very lucky to know the Quartet members personally for many years (as early as six years old) but the first time we all met musically was on the first day of recording White Night, the centerpiece of my previous album. and just like that, without planning it, the quartet was formed.
Since the time of our group’s formation, 4 years have passed, we’ve
since traveled the world together performing in front of incredibly
diverse and truly amazing ranges of audiences. Through our touring
and traveling together, we’ve learned how to know one another on
deeply personal and professional levels as friends and musicians.
Through our bond the sound of our quartet emerged. The first piece we recorded together eventually evolved into a rhapsody for jazz quartet & orchestra, and now, the time has come for something completely new. Furthermore, a major source of inspiration for this album, is the teacher who had the greatest influence on me as a composer and improviser, the Hungarian-Israeli composer Professor Andre Hijdu, may he rest in peace. My interactions with him changed me forever. During the years I studied with him, I learned to use improvisation as a composition tool, it is through this improvisation we find new directions and new ideas for our creations. Moreover, in recent years I have also used composing as a tool for improvisation, Im trying to challenge my improvised (speech) abilities by writing music that will be a truly challenging ground for improvisation.
However, more than anything else, he taught me to never be afraid of
change to embrace it, on the contrary, he taught me how to embrace and welcome change. This album is dedicated to him, the composer Prof. Andre Hijdu.
