Album Notes
Butterfly Effect Ensemble is a cutting-edge ensemble creating dreamlike episodes with live performance, sound and visual imaging. This rare meeting of three veteran Israel musical creators, along with guest visual artists, results in an experience touching the subliminal, unexpected and surreal. The group’s hallmark is an inner communication built from years of collaborative composition.

The ensemble’s sound is built from extremes: from spacious meditative spaces, to dense primal screams. Real-time composition creates an on-stage “drama” of discovery-three musicians taking a chance in real time, building miniature “worlds”, one by one, like islands in an archipelago, or pictures in a gallery. Each piece has its own unique feeling, tone and message. The overall effect is a sublime acoustic and visual experience, a blend of the ancient and modern.

The large array of instruments include: percussion (water gongs, vibraphone, amplified cymbals, roto toms, heat sink, Thailand nipple gongs, Indian chinta, roto toms, wood saws, bass drum, etc.); woodwinds (bass flute, alto flute, bass clarinet, soprano and baritone saxophones, Chinese flutes, bamboo saxophones, Tibetan double reed instruments, Irish flute, various ethnic double reed instruments); and keyboards (grand piano with array of sticks and beaters, prepared piano).

Current creations include the Cine-Concert Project, live musical scores to classic Silent Films, "breathing new life into the classics". Website: www.butterflyeffectensemble.com Musicians' websites: www.stephenhorenstein.com , www.liornavok.com
