Avishai Cohen is one of my favourite composers due to his artistic sensibility and versatility. Jazz, Classical, Pop... who cares...? I believe his music transcends genres and hits directly where it should.
I came across his music by accident in this old house located in Icho Cruz (a lovely little village in Cordoba, Argentina), where I used to spend the summertime with friends. Many people frequented the place... and it was common to leave books and cd's there for the next visitor to enjoy something new. I'm still not sure who left the album Lyla there but I always wanted to thank that person, because it changed my perception of music for good.
"Remembering" is a gentle tour into our brains photo albums. The ostinato played by the piano invites the listener to enter a long windowed path... If you decide to take this ride , just let the double bass improvisation lead the journey... it will take you to some places you probably had forgotten about... some unhappy images perhaps... but most of all joyful memories.

About the Curator: Christian Silvosa
Argentinian pianist, composer and producer. From Classical and Tango to House and Ambient, Christian is always looking forward to incorporating new sounds to his music.
After many years collaborating with different artists in Buenos Aires, Christian released his first soloist ep: Blood Moon Eclipse. The album presents "his own interpretation of classical, jazz and film-music composition, on which beautifully crafted piano melodies and dreamy, cinematic arrangements create a perfect soundtrack for cosy winter evenings by the fire" (Annie Rew Shaw - Lost in the Transmission Magazine).
His classical music background also blends perfectly with electronic music elements, converging in a unique sound that can be heard in "Las Olas" (Ambient music project, co-produced with Sidirum). Also, film scoring, advertising music, and Non-linear compositions (video games) are some places where this versatile composer finds inspiration.
