Those walks in the wadi of my childhood, the river and caves of the Natufians, are present in my life and art just as Bill Dixon and Sunny Murray and the many paths they showed me into the world of sound. Music for me is everything that is unexplainable and yet undoubtedly beautiful in this life. Its ways and manifestations in the sound world are infinetly diverse. Whether desgined carefully, fast or slow, or being played in the NOW. The feeling is of that same primary creativity. The paths, or those walks, are still being explored as the story unfolds..

Recent months were challenging on many levels but as the social isolation period grew longer different long distance collaborations started emerging. In the next few weeks I will add several videos from this period to the website . Here is a new piece of mine called Balbalus. The music was recorded by each musician separately (Joost Buis, Maya Felixbrodt, Shay Hazan, Onno Govaert and myself)and was later edited and mixed by Shay Hazan. The words you hear is a poem I wrote (in hebrew), wondering about the ignorance/ selfishness we discover in ourselves, feeling fear and pity only once the trouble is knocking on our own door. The video was made by my brother, Ariel Taubenfeld. Documenting the surreal but daily reality of south Tel-Aviv in times of corona.
