Jerusalem In My Heart

TSM represents Jerusalem In My Heart licensing/sync rights for: World

Artist Description: With performances occurring 1-3 times per year, no two Jerusalem In My Heart events have ever been the same: configurations have ranged from 2 to 24 participants, with varying degrees of theatrical stage action alongside a film/video component. Moumneh's vocals and purposefully blown-out sonic sensibility have been the consistent thread, but the music of JIMH has never repeated itself either – one of the reasons Moumneh has resisted any official documentation or definitive recording of the project over the past eight years. At long last, in 2012 Moumneh cleared time and mental space to record a song cycle that cements the foundations of JIMH as an intensely vocal-driven musical project.

JIMH has always been an immersive sonic and visual live experience; on the musical side, an evolving effort to forge a modern experimental Arabic music that weds melismatic singing in classical Arabic modes to electronic compositions with a punk-rock production sensibility. Mo7it Al-Mo7it captures and conveys all of this, while emphasising the intimacy and narrative pace that focused, intentional studio recording allows. The result is a unique and profoundly emotive album of contemporary Arabic music, a stunningly subtle first record for a musical project that resisted documentation or any sort of fixity for so many years. Moumneh's voice has become a powerfully authentic instrument and his production techniques – applying distortion, space echo and delay to varying degrees – lend a timeless intensity to the recording. Saturated synths and the overdriven signals of Moumneh's acoustic playing on buzuk and zurna reinforce the reigning sensibility, providing bracing counterpoint to the vocals and lovely, searching instrumental narratives in their own right.

Jerusalem In My Heart currently exists around the core of Radwan Ghazi Moumneh carrying musical duties and Montreal filmmaker Charles-André Coderre projecting hand-made visuals using analog 16mm film & 35mm slides on multiple site-specific screen installations.
