    I enjoyed working with Ori! He’s very professional and was a delight to work for. I recorded vocals for one of his songs. The song was a lot of fun to work on. He clearly knows what he wants and gives thorough directions with how he wants his music recorded. I hope you will get a chance to work with Ori!

  9. Q: Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?

  10. A: I've lately finished an album for an artist, this was a great experience cause the album has just 'happened'. No song was written when he first came to me. After 6 month's, eventually 13 new songs were produced one by one, great songs.. created like on the good old days.. as part of the experience, each has it's own color, holds a musical image of the experience. It was lot's of fun.

  20. A: Actually my strongest skill is the actual combination of me playing lots of instruments and understanding sound design. People many times ask me what's my strongest instrument, thinking that perhaps playing lots of instruments makes me average on each.. but it's actually to the contrary, cause each instruments actually makes be better on the rest of them, it adds a piece of the puzzle, a 'musical feature' not defaultly comes when playing one instrument.

  21. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  22. A: As a multi-instrumentalist and a producer i can better take into account not just the take i'm recording but the whole production and how everything relates to one another.

  23. Q: What's your typical work process?

  24. A: Broadly speaking, I Usually produce a song with about 2-4 sessions, where it starts with the building blocks, which is setting the basic feel, harmony and structure with piano, Recording a vocal guide, and then proceeding to color it with midi based instruments, which later are being replaced with live one's. Programmable Drums & Bass first, Then the rest. some midi instruments stay's until the end if they sound good enough, such as certain strings and pads. Later We're recording all the instrument, hiring the right session musicians for the job. Eventually focusing strongly on the vocals & vocals harmony. And then it's the mix.

  25. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
