Harel Gal - the beginning the end
For this, our sixth label release, the dream is taken up by Israeli songwriter and soundsmith Harel Gal. When Harel contacted the PlagueDream Institute, we were immediately struck by the intimacy and tenderness of his musical vision. His sonic palette is often melancholic, occasionally foreboding, but never bleak. In addition to playing guitar, flute, electronics, and many other instruments and non-musical objects, Harel also has the distinction of being the first singer on the label. His gentle voice graces two songs, away and sounds of sorrow.
