We have been fortunate to work with many talented composers and musicians here at Shockwave-Sound.com over the years, and this month we have the pleasure of announcing the release of 103 tracks by Israeli master composer, Ori Vidislavski.
Like the other 8 or so composers who are "signed-on" to Shockwave-Sound, all of Ori's music is always exclusive to Shockwave-Sound.com for a minimum period of one year before it is made available anywhere else.
Ori is probably the most sought after drama composer in Israel. He has composed for more than 150 different film, theater and dance projects. Hailing from a religious family, he was influenced early on by religious and classical music, while inspiring him to compose music to heal and comfort the world around him throgh music.
Ori has composed for a huge number of theater productions, including "Richard III" and "The Merchant of Venice". In film, he has composed for "Angels in America", "A View from the Bridge", "The Cucible" and many, many others. His work also spans childrens plays , dance choreography, TV shows, commercials, installations and events.
Unknown to most, Ori is the composer of the song "Winter of 73", a number one hit in Israel and one of the most influential songs in Israeli culture. In 1980 he was awarded the "Israeli Oscar" for his compositions in the films "Sheure" and "Aretz Hadasha". In 1993 the Israeli Composer Association honored Ori with the "Composer of the Year" award and throughout the years 2003-2009 he continues to compose for a number of film and media projects, and now, for the Shockwave-Sound.com stock music catalogue.
Ori Vidislavski has always tried to tie people together through his music. In 1995 he founded the live band "Deiwan", an ensemble consisting of five Arab and four Jewish musicians. He likes to blend various aspects of life in Israel, Jewish and oriental motifs, eastern, american and European influences in his music. We're glad to have him. :-)
Look for more of Ori Vidislavski's music to show up in the Shockwave-Sound.com royalty free music catalogue over the next months and years.
