Hello, I'm Eldar Baruch, a Musician, Composer, Keyboardist & a Music Editor - mainly for Dance choreography, Theatre performances, Dance film and Video art. I mostly work from Tel Aviv & Berlin, however, mutual inspiration is not bound to geographical limits and I believe in collaboration beyond borders.
Furthermore, I also play for improvised dance projects, site-specific performances, professional dance workshops & Contact Improvisation (CI) Jams/classes (Israel, Berlin, NYC, Paris, etc.).
My musical palette is comprised of piano solos, electronic soundscapes, rhythms & grooves, abstract-organic soundscapes, acoustic instruments & toys sounds. In my musical creations, I stir my inner sounds with keyboards (Piano, synthesizers, melodica and other keyboard-toys), ukulele, Merlin, computer based programs, my own sampling, kalimba, metallophone & other musical toys.
I dance myself, and am therefore also aware of the powerful influence that a sound, a rhythm and/or a melody have on the way of motion and dance.
I am fascinated by the connection of music and dance.. Two abstract forms of creation-art-communication - and their relations. Their mutual nourishment. And from a musician point of view; The way a sound (and silence) empowers a motion. The way delicacy and breeze of music can create a space. Music as illumination of a physical phrase.
In my musical creation for dance, I am attentive to the nuances motion & bodies.
As well, in the past decade, I've been playing an improvised live music score for Improvised Theater plays (AKA "Playback Theater")..
