It’s time for me to make my first exception here on my blog, as I said I would write primarily about electronic music, but this time I’ve got some great news from a different musical genre I would like to share with you.
Folkstone is a rock band from Italy I have worked many years with. Our collaboration started in the recording studio, I worked with them as a sound engineer and we became close friends and collaborators. We started writing music together and our songs rapidly gained major success in Italy.
Folkstone has one special trademark: the use of medieval instruments such as bagpipes, harp, bombard, cittern and particular flutes. These instruments have all special and unusual sounds, and are great for experimenting unique arrangements.
I have produced their last album, “Oltre l’Abisso”, right before returning to Tel Aviv. I have many great memories with the band, including travelling through Europe when I was their PA engineer.
So why am I writing this? This Christmas, Folkstone has released a new video of a song we wrote together on their new album, a beautiful animation video directed by Marco Pavone. This song also features Chris Dennis on the violin as a special guest, he has played with some of Italy’s greatest bands such as Nomadi and Modena City Ramblers.
I hope you enjoy this song! Best,
