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..
Full Sun's second album is out on the 17th of June 2022. Very happy to collaborate on this release with Clean Feed Records.
The CD includes 5 compositions for improvisers (some of which are dedications to underrated giants of jazz and improvised music). The sound you hear is the ensemble playing these compositions on that particular autumn evening in October 2020.
Ziv Taubenfeld- bass clarinet, percussion
Michael Moore- alto saxophone, clarinet
Joost Buis- trombone
Nico Chientaroli- piano, objects
Omer Govreen- double bass
Onno Govaert- drums, percussion
Fragments is an audio-visual album I made with my brother, Ariel Taubenfeld. A kind of experiment on the balance and relation between video and sound. Shay Hazan is heard on the double bass.
