Castle in time orchestra members

Castle in time is an independent orchestra that was formed by the need to hear and create a large ensemble that contains classical and electronic instruments that perform original music. 


Mostly in their late twenties, trying to challenge and connect between an up-to-date fresh poppy sound and the institution called "orchestra". Its repertory is multimedia that combines music, movement, and video. There is a tight bond between the instrumentalists and the composers of the orchestra. The composition of the material is always a dialogue and a collaborative creation process among these two. During the rehearsals the action of conducting was developed to be an unusual act of performance, combining improvisation and live communication sign language.
