In psychoanalysis, one of the questions that is being asked frequently is “what’s crossing your mind?” That type of mental movement is a phenomenon which I’ve been exploring recently by creating a multi-disciplinary body of work, consists of music, dance, video and documentary. Mind Crossing is based on a collection of letters which my grandfather wrote after war world 2, telling a story of a couple who lost their children during the holocaust, and struggle to immigrate through a journey in Europe, the mediterranean and Israel.
Here is the 1st dance duet from the project:
super excited to release a single from my forth and upcoming album.
Hot from the oven! check this video from our show in TLV. Hosting the dancer Noa Ezrachi for an interpretation of “Under Contractions”
“Under Contractions”, released August 2014, is Tal Gur’s critically acclaimed 3rd album which received many warm reviews and have recently reached #4 on CMJ’s Jazz Chart.
“The starting point of the composition is a birth of an idea which is a consequence of non inspirational vacuum. It develops musically throughout the next pieces as the band uses contemporary improvisational models to build the primary motif, alongside reconstructing meaningful events in life such as birth of a child, migration and perspectives over ongoing war situation.” – Tal Gur
