New Place Always is a collection of melodies that have resonated through time, long enough to evoke a sense of folkloric familiarity
After collaborating for his debut album, Nitai Hershkovits and Rejoicer take the art of Piano Solo to a new level; Eight of the tunes were written together in the studio
“I had all kinds of ideas but I wanted the music to fit the piano and the room in the studio so I wrote most of them there. The process was simple - we kept switching sides, left and right hands, each one brings his color to a new tune”, says Nitai.
Like in classical music, the rest of the tunes are through-composed, leaving space for interpretation and real-time composition as well as gathering musical ideas from Nitai’s African roots, using Western harmonies to create a new, fresh palette of sounds.
