Lonny Ziblat: Refuses to bow to any one genre…..

Lonny Ziblat – Hashever

Lonny (Lionel) Ziblat is a composer / arranger / guitarist & performer.

Hashever is the second production in Hebrew of Lonny Ziblat as a solo artist, after is album Khalom(Dream) , 2 other solo albums in English, and 2 albums with his ex-band Modest Midget. All the songs but one (Seret Met) on this album were all written in the 90’s. The track Secret Met – סרט מת,

Ziblat states, «The spirit behind the other songs is quite dark and reflects a less pleasant part of life as I experience it. Because they express parts of my moods that are not the friendliest, or most easy going, I let these songs slide and stay in the background». The track Palilt Berlinai,

«However, after much thought I decided to complete their production and publish them, for the simple reason that I believe it’s an artist role to expose himself and share all sides of his feelings. I believe that it’s the role of music and musical lyrics to help us see all of us in order to experience true empathy and learn more about ourselves».

Lonny Ziblat was born in Buenos Aires, brought up in Israel and currently residing in The Netherlands where he composes and arranges music for different ensembles, orchestras and choirs. In recent years Zibklat has also been writing and producing music for different films and T.V. productions worldwide, alongside having produced two albums with his band – Modest Midget – where he explored the connection between different musical styles. The track Reiakh Hasof (feat. Emiel De Jong),

His mother was a classically trained pianist and his father was a member of Los Jets, an Argentinean Rock’n’Roll band. He grew up loving both hooks, alongside many other musical genres ranging from Dixieland to modern Fusion, South American, North American, Mediterranean & European folklore. As a result he grew to have an affinity within different musical contexts.

As a composer he refuses to bow to any one genre or to discriminate between styles, striving for excellence in every project he is involved with. His music challenges the boundaries amongst genres and he is happy to defy music lovers’ taste by bringing intensity and rhythm to a classically oriented concert or by bringing opera to a rock concert. His music can be delicate, rough, complex or straightforward simple. As an arranger and orchestrator he can smoothly fit into almost any style and answer the needs of the production at hand.

He has composed, arranged and produced music for some of the most exclusive ensembles and orchestra’s in the Netherlands (see below) and with established artists, among which singer Eva Maria Westbroek, conductor Otto Tausk, singer Wouter Hamel, Mavi Díaz (Arg), Omar Mollo (winner of the Latin Grammy’s & the Carlos Gardel prize), The Leo Smit Foundation & the Argentinean duo Lerner & Moguilevsky. He orchestrated music for Poznansky’s score of Joseph Cedar’s feature film Footnote (nominated for an Oscar in 2012). Modest Midget is defined as crossover prog at prog archieve, and here are the very good Modest Midget song Troubles In Heaven,

Ziblat has won the 3rd prize in the Ricciotti arrangers’ competition and has earned a finalist certificate for his participation in the Oticons Faculty competition. He completed his 2nd phase (MA) study of classical composition with Henk Alkema, and has studied Jazz guitar with Eef Albers as well as orchestral conducting. He followed workshops with a.o. Krzysztof Penderecki, Jurjen Hempel & Hein Van De Geyn.

Om Ulf Backstrøm (3919 Artikler)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
