Alon Eder’s Audio Visual Projectby David Pearl | 13.11.15
After 3 solo albums (two of them under the name Alon Eder & Band) the Indie singer-songwriter Alon Eder is releasing “Casio2” (or “Casio Rage”), the follow-up to his side project that began in 2012 as “Filthy Casio” – an album entirely made with Casio keyboards from the 80’s and Alon’s vocals. You might think “it has to be a weird album,” but you must give it a try to discover the beauty and the heart in it.
In the new album, Alon is taking a step forward and pulling a “Beyonce” – with 16 songs accompanied with a video for each song. Each video was made by various artists that listened the album prior to release, picked a track, and created a special video for it. The songs hop between hip-hop flavours, to noise and rock – and even pop. The re-imagination of the songs in the videos make this album, not only an album to listen to – but also an album to “listen” to visually.
Alon is best known for his old school approach to music – his album sounds like the incredible old vinyls from the 70’s – but with the casio project, he tries to challenge himself (and the listener) with a different approach that completely relies on the casio, his guitar, and his vocals. It is fantastic to listen to the songs, and be able to hear how much he has succeeded with this album.
This month, after touring all over the country Alon will arrive in Tel Aviv and perform live at “OzenBar” on the 28th of November – so you must be sure to catch him!
