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. 

The musicians

mostly at their late twenties, trying to challenge and connect between an up to date fresh poppy sound and the institution called "orchestra". Its repertory is a multimedia that combines music, movement and video. There is a tight bond between the instrumentalists and the composers of the orchestra. The composition of 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 a live communication sign language.
