Covid-19 made us all change in ways we could hardly imagine before. For me, these circumstances only enveloped other life-changing events, as my long-time partnership with my wife Aya grew larger with the birth of our first son Tom; a few months later, we moved from Israel to Germany, so for the first time since I was 19 years old, I was no longer teaching music for a living, became “full-time musician and the end of 2022 marked the end of this transition with the birth of our second son Uri.
During these years, I promoted different projects, some strongly tied to prior activities such as the CPA project or the “Didactic pieces” project, directly emerging from my teaching career. But at the same time, and as the life transition became more apparent, I managed to invest much time and energy in building the infrastructure, bettering my recording and mastering technique, learning to work with Ableton fluently and later writing in max, and establishing a solid foundation for projects I plan completing during 2023- and finally launching during 2024.
