Yonatan Gat is ready to follow up his debut EP, Iberian Passage, released last year. A full-length album, entitled Director, arrives on March 3rd via Joyful Noise Recordings.
The New York-by-way-of-Tel-Aviv composer and guitar virtuoso doesn’t really rely on overdubbing and Director is again an intense and improvisational affair drawing from many genres and roots from across the world. “Inspired by soundtrack virtuosos like Ennio Morricone and Nino Rota”, as the press release describes, “Director is a cinematic circular journey around the music of the world, East to West and North to South. This journey is interconnected by field recordings that Gat has taken during his travels, lending it a feeling of space and time, with a certain directionality.”
‘Goldrush’ is the first taste being offered from the upcoming album. Take a listen below.
