It has been ages since the last 0 A.D. music blog - three years and three days, in fact!
With the move to Los-Angeles and building a new life, it has taken me a very long time to create new content for 0 A.D.
The game's score was quite expansive, and it was self-sufficient for a while, but the time has definitely come to liven it up a bit!

Though I had a pretty busy career before coming to Los-Angeles, this city held many "firsts" for me.
One of those was scoring a western - something I've always wanted to do, especially as a guitarist and a die-hard Ennio Morricone fan!
I met director Stella Tinucci and star Josh Margulies at a wrap party for another project, and immediately felt we hit i...

It's been a little over a year since I last posted in this blog, for no other reason than I was unable to clear the time and mind-space to do so.
But as my life is slowly beginning to stabilize, I expect to be back more frequently!
So as some of you know, the reason for my absence was that I had moved my life and career from a small town in Israel to the big...

The album was beautifully mastered, and my sights were set on the upcoming move to Los-Angeles.
I had not yet decided if I wish to have a launch performance, but I believed I might regret leaving Israel without formally acknowledging the end of this long process.
I had reached out to my friends, Inbal-Rotem Sagiv, Yotam Ronen, Itay Haruvi and Inbal Kim Nahir...

May 18th, 2016, at Yuval Silberstein's mastering studio in Tel-Aviv.
On this stage of production, I have decided to do something I never do - absolutely nothing!
So I took the back seat and let Itay Haruvi (whom I trust deeply) sit through the process with Yuval.
The results were stellar, our beautiful mixes came through the analog chain sparkling and shining,...

On April 13th, 2016, I drove up north to meet a talented friend, Inbal Kim Nahir.
Kimmy has a keen eye and a great aesthetic sense, and I trusted her to shoot my album cover, as well as some "ambient" shots to be used for the rest of the design process.
The weather was blissfully winteresque, and I could not have planned it better myself!
We found a beautiful,...

Early in March, 2016
Before I started this process, I wanted to put together a team of talented people.
Ones who can balance out my own skills, and cover my blind spots.
Among the first in that list was Itay Haruvi - a very talented mixing and recording engineer, whos taste in music is similar to mine.
What more could I possibly ask for? :)
After we conclud...

A few years ago, my old friend and collaborator Hadas Noam contacted me to score an environmentally friendly puzzle game.
Needless to say, I was immediately on board - not only was it a great idea, but I always enjoyed working with Hadas :)
This would later become iPollute - a charming puzzle game, jam packed with humor and incredible stop-motion animations!

Early in December I was approached to score a trailer for a funny mobile game called "Angry Jew".
At first I didn't think I'll make it, with my album recording sessions, the upcoming London trip and ongoing work on Bolt Riley...
But somehow I managed to squeeze it in - and I'm really glad I did :)
This trailer required me to do something I've never really...

As the playbacks were nearing completion, it was time to start thinking about the vocals!
So I called up three friends - Itay Haruvi, Jonathan Linav and Yotam Ronen (whom I would later come to call "the high council"), and we met in Haruvi's studio to host a little "mic shootout"!
The winner proved to be a very manly Manley X10i,...
