about

"Yifeat Ziv’s voice has intensity and precision but what I really love about it is a searching quality, the feeling that it questions itself as it moves around in space, so the strength of it is not dogmatism or force but a genuine curiosity about where it goes, how it absorbs and is absorbed by other sounds, objects, materials and emptiness."
-- David Toop

Experimental vocalist and sound artist Yifeat Ziv debuts on FP for our 100th release with her glorious exploration of sounding in the Brazilian Amazon. Some words from her text accompanying the release are below:
"The forest reverberates my voice. The density of the trees and the thick canopy reflects sound waves and creates an echo as if I was singing in a closed space, maybe a chapel. I didn’t expect it. This echo feels like a mirror, it feedbacks my vocal intervention, reflecting traces of my own sound pollution in the Amazon’s dense soundscape."
--- Yifeat Ziv
