Eco | Silvia Rivka Bandera
"Eco" is a journey of sounds that began in Italy and ended in Santiago de Chile. From "Eco" the other pieces of music unfold and bring with them the resonance of the mother song. Just to reflect the nature of the echo, which is always concise and ephemeral, all the songs are characterized by an intrinsic brevity, the guiding thread of the entire musical journey. The music is interpreted only by female musicians.
"Amarillo and the mirrors" and "Iris" were recorded in Santiago de Chile in two extreme situations: the first during the violent demonstrations of the "estadido social" and the second during the "Covid-19" quarantine period.
Gray resounds the sky of my lip while it shadows the memory. Eco is a subtle toll in the valley of every sense when the empty broken light abandons itself.
NO ONE CARES
Step by step the gaze rides the silent white. Drops of emptiness In a dance of motionless wind they fall, Nothing.
MY LIFE IS-IN TEL AVIV
In the center of (my) world, the piano plays with the sea
the miniatures project aims to enhance poetic verses through images and melodies that are realized in short visual emotions set to music. Each miniature evokes a verse of the chosen poet, through the music illustration. It is therefore not a question of description, but of impression. The close relationship between literature, illustration and music is enshrined in a color that identifies each individual miniature and makes it the common thread.
