So, here's the story... In the middle of making a studio album that involves many musicians, song arrangements, studio time, availability, budgets and everything else that goes into producing an album, I called my good friend, music colleague and awesome producer Avishai Barnatan Music to come over with his microphones because "I'm feelin' it", he said sure right away and came over to my home studio. We recorded 6 songs in one day and 3 more the next day. Just me with Guitar, Oud, my voice and the occasional stomp box, together we've captured the sound of playing music in one organic take. This album was inspired by the true nature of simplicity. Like playing music around the fire, at home, busking and my solo performances with all the beauty and imperfections. The vision was to capture the authentic sound of the instruments and voice in their natural sound without the accompaniment of many musical elements or sound effects. It was a burst of inspiration to record and play in the raw form I play music most of the time. Ten musical pieces of Hebrew songs, Spanish guitar, Oud melodies, instrumentals and improvisational music.
