about

octoberXart Records, 2012, octoberXart mem02, professionally made CD/R


Ofir was born as a result of adding the singer Josefina Gómez to the Mundo Flotante project, with the idea of developing new arrangements for a centenarian legacy, the Sephardic songs. I started to work with this repertoire around 2005 for a trio project that was thwarted before its debut. The songs has been going round and round my head for years but I begun to think seriously about to create this band when I found Josefina's voice.


We started to rehearsal around September 2011, slowly but surely, meeting once a week and sculpting little by little the arrangements for a bunch of songs. In some of them I used rough ideas composed in 2005, but in others, new arrangements emerged very quickly with the participation of the whole band, much in the world-jazz-rock Mundo Flotante's style. In November we recorded a five songs demo showing the characteristic style of the band, already well-defined and mature.


The first live performance by Ofir was in Espacio Ronda in Madrid, February 10, 2012. In this CD we have the entire concert, from a direct recording from the mix console of the venue and the audio track of a video camera, as well as the 5 songs of the demo, remixed.
