The newly-established Order Disturbed performance series is importing Oren Ambarchi, the Australian electronic guitarist, to give a string of performances in both Tel Aviv and Jerusalem. Coordinated by Eran Sachs, a local experimental event planner and electronic musician who has gained notoriety abroad, and Ilan Volkov, chief conductor of the BBC's orchestra in Glasgow, Order Disturbed is devoted to new music, linking genres such as rock, contemporary classical, electronic, jazz and metal through their common sounds, explains Sachs. The desire, he continues, is to foster new opportunities to network Israelis with international musicians.
Ambarchi explores the guitar to produce electronic music without the aid of computers, and is coming to Israel after the release of his solo album Insulation. During the series he will perform many times with Stephen O'Mally, one half of the sludge metal group Sunno))), currently the biggest name on the Southern Lord Recordings label. Sunno))), pronounced "sun" and named for a rare brand of vintage amplifier, is also responsible for the revitalization of the Seattle grunge band Earth - the group that Kurt Cobain played with before reaching stardom with Nirvana.
Ambarchi will be giving a solo performance in Tel Aviv at Levontin 7 on July 13 for NIS 50. On Monday, July 17, he will be at the Daila at 4 Shlomzion Hamalka Street in Jerusalem for NIS 20 along with Eran Sachs. He will appear with Uri Frost and local Israeli musicians on July 19 for NIS 40, also at Levontin 7. On July 21 Ambarchi will give a free show at Jerusalem's Uganda, along with O'Mally at 1 p.m. Giving two more shows at Levontin 7 on July 20 and 22, Ambarchi will perform with O'Malley and Attila Csihar for NIS 70.
The trio will give their final performance at Jerusalem's Yellow Submarine on July 24 at 10 p.m., with tickets priced at NIS 50 and NIS 60. All shows are scheduled for 9 p.m. unless otherwise noted.
Tickets may be purchased by calling (054) 428-8983 or by contacting the Third Ear in Tel Aviv, (03) 621-5226, or Uganda, (02) 623-6087.
