Yuval Ron and Residents Of The Future (Israel)
Band Description: Yuval Ron and Residents Of The Future perform original tunes written and arranged mostly by guitarist and band former Yuval Ron. The music reveals influences of modern jazz greatests, and a mixture of many other contemporary artists of the progressive rock, fusion and metal veins. The music holds a constant emphasis on harmonic richness, rhythmical sophistication, dialogues between players and extensive use of synthesizers and other electric instruments.
The material played blends between fascinating compositions and spectacular solo improvisations and leads to a musically electrifying experience.
The band has performed on a variety of venues worldwide, and gained extremely supportive feedbacks and recognition from audiences, the media and fellow musicians. It has also released a first EP on May 2004 named “Futuristic Worlds Under Construction”, and the latest release Live at Klaipeda International Jazz Festival, a FreeVD (Free Video For Distribution) which can be entirely viewed at the Music page. At 2007 and 2008 Yuval Ron and Residents Of The Future will also perform at some of the most renowned Jazz venues in the world. Stay tuned on the website's Events page for more information.
Yuval Ron bio: Born in Haifa, 1980, Yuval started to play the guitar at age 11. Soon he became active as a player, songwriter, leader and sideman in local bands which played a variety of styles in Metal music and Hardcore.
After being exposed to bands such as Cynic, Mr. Bungle and Meshuggah alongside Chick Corea, Allan Holdsworth, Dave Liebman, John Zorn, John Coltrane, ECM artists and many other contemporary Jazz and progressive music greats, he decided to take jazz and improvisation lessons and since have studied with some of the top music teachers in Israel. Yuval is also invloved in the field of software engineering.
Take refined artistic prowess, add modern electronic technology, Middle Eastern musical modes, the pulse of North American fusion Jazz .... then add plenty of chutzpah...., and you end up with the exciting works of Yuval Ron and his quartette from Israel. Focusing primarily on their own compositions, this collection of well-crafted contemporary material is further testimony to the universal appeal of Jazz for the creative residents of all cultures. Broad sweeps of musical texture, intriguing harmonic progressions, cutting edge melodic ideas and sophisticated syncopations mirror the works of late Twentieth Century fusion ensembles. Yuval Ron and Residents Of The Future seem to be reminding us that, as in their part of the world, the past and the future will meet in the present. - Robin H.S Munro, Vortex Magazine
