The dream and the reality
Ori Vidislavski has been composing music for the theatre, films and dance for over 20 years. Born and raised in Israel. His father came from a well-knowen religious family and his mother- from a Kibutz. Through-out his childhood Ori Vidislavski had absorbed the influences of Jewish prayers, pioneer songs and clasical music.As he grew-up, he became awer of oriental music and was drawn to it.
Ori vidislavski graduated the music academy in tel-aviv and hasen't stoped composing since. Over the years, he had composed and prodused music for over 120 plays (classical, contemporary, and original), 20 dance choreographies- some of which are full-length preformanses based entirely on his music, six features, Themes for t.v. showes, commerchials and special events. The song “Winter of '73”, composed by Vidislavski, was recently chosen as one of the five most influencing songs on Israeli colture.
His experience with composing music for films and the theatre, has made him one of Israel's most dramatic composers as well as an artist who can “handle a scene”. Between 1990 and 1995, he founded a musical band called “Deiwan”, composed of five Arab musicians and five Jewish ones. The band was a pioneer in developing the ethnic music genre in Israel. His musical style strives to merge all of the aspects making up contemporary life in Israel
- Jewish and oriental motifs, European and American influences and the impossible tension between “”, which is very hard to abide by.
