Balinade - alternative rock, Israel (E95)

About: Balinade,very cool band from Tel Aviv.

"I have recored the "Horseless saddle" album early this year in purpose of placing some of the songs as soundtracks in movies after a music producer listend to my demos and requested me to prepare him a CD with high quality tracks for a Miramax production that will be released early 2012. So, during the recording, seeing the songs come alive with real musicians, I have decided to create Balinade in order to play these songs live, and currently we are working on the "Horseless saddle" tour which will be ready at the begining of 2012, and will also be accompanied by a video art which I am currently working on. So it's going to be a very intresting show..."

1). If you had a chance to be in a movie, what movie and what part would you choose?
My favorite director is Akira Korasawa, and if I had to choose one part, I would choose to be in "Throne of blood" where the hero encounter the forest witch (Makbet style). It's a very emotinal piece putting together all the best things in Korasawa work.

2).Would you like to have your own radio station? If yes - What would you name it and what music would you play on it?
I would not open a radio station of my own. It will play along not more then 10 bands... I value the bands I like so much, so at any given moment I would prefer listen to them rather then to other (as great as they can be) bands... I would not be left with a lot of auidaces after a while I guess...

3).Name the three characteristics that you think are most important for a musician to have?
a - lots of patiance
b - an un explainable drive to be heard
c - a unique musical style

4). Does your family like your music? Do they support you?
My family like the msuic very much. I am not a musician for a leaving (I'm an Engineer working on technical developments in the semiconductor buisness) , so I get their support to playaround with what I'm doing in the music biz...

5). Please share with us your first experience on stage. Where was it and how did it go?
I had a band when I was a kid, so it's pretty while back... I promise to share with you my feeling from the first show we will perform in the "horselss saddle" tour...
