Notes & Reviews:

Yael Acher, a native of Tel Aviv, graduated from the Rubin Academy for Music and Dance and has lived and worked in Copenhagen since 1992. Acher has a wide background as a soloist. She performs classical and modern works, contemporary, progressive electro-acoustic jazz and Latin, as well as free improvising. Since the early 1990s Acher has been the leader of Junk "Kat," which can be described as electro-instrumental progressive groove Jazz. The works on this CD, which are based on free improvisations, give expression to a brilliant and unique style, deriving primarily from Acher 's deep passion for eclecticism. Among elements typical of 20th century music, such as poly rhythm, polytonality and atonality, one can also find ritualistic elements inspired by Arabic and Far Eastern cultures. The French classical flute school has an important influence on Acher 's performing as well. This unique blend of improvisation, electro-acoustic sounds and traditional composition provides an experience that is very personal and allows different kinds of responses from the audience.
