“Half colors, Half voices” was released in Fall 2008, as a collaboration between pianist and composer Uriel Herman and double bass player, Ehud Ettun. The album is composed of poems by the legendary Israeli poet, Rachel Blubshtein, set to original music. The album immediately received rave reviews from leading Israeli music critics. Producer Adi Rennert, highlights a rare collaboration between leading musicians and vocalists in Israel, with these emotionally-charged lyrics and compositions. Contributing artists include; Eli Degibri, Zohar Fresco, Avi Singolda, Eli Magen, Peter Roth, Avi Belleli and Rea Mochiach.
Following the success of “Half Colors, Half Voices”, Uriel and Ehud were commissioned by the Jerusalem Film Festival to collaborate with some of Israel’s leading video artists, to create an audio-visual performance that combines Uriel and Ehud’s original music with visuals depicting Rachel Blubshtein’s life.
Premiered at the Jerusalem Film Festival, this project continues to run with great success in festivals and concerts in Israel.
