Eldad Zitrin on Tour: A 360 Degree Headphone Show
Every once in a while, I share an Israeli show for those of my readers who are interested in hearing contemporary Israeli music (hopefully not only Israelis). This time the show includes several instrumental pieces as well as vocals.
After his first national tour that SOLD OUT magnificently, musician Eldad Zitrin is starting a second round of 'A 360-Degree Headphone Show' that will take place in Nov-Dec 2019 throughout Israel.
It's a special show, in which the audience is seated in full circle around Eldad and his musical instruments and everyone has headphones.
There is no sound from external speakers.
You hear exactly what Eldad hears.
You hear exactly what Eldad wants you to hear.
You feel the sound and music as close as possible.
The upcoming tour will also unveil new materials from the next album Zitrin is currently working on, that will be out soon.

Eldad Zitrin is a one man show and a one man orchestra. In his unique and astonishing way, Eldad Zitrin sings, creates and plays his music, surrounded by a set of unique musical instruments built for the show.
Like an acrobat floating in the air surrounded by a 360-degree set of electric piano, keyboards, wind instruments, percussion, acoustic and electronic drums. During the show, he challenges himself to use the variety of instruments at his disposal and examines the limits of his ability as a multi-player to create and record in real time and turn the separate roles of the surrounding instruments into a complete creation.
Zitrin collaborates with senior Israeli artists, including Dudu Tassa, Eviatar Banai, Amir Dadon, Nathan Goshen, Shlomi Shabat, Micha Sheetrit, Idan Raichel and others.
In parallel to the headphones show, the joint and successful show of Eldad Zitrin and Ishay Ribo is continuing to run throughout the country.
In addition, he is the musical director and producer of Rita's "Yemei HaTom" (i.e. Days of Innocence) tour, of which has been musical director for many years.
To date, Zitrin has released 3 albums and EPs featuring a variety of styles that combine together, electronic alongside acoustic, alternative alongside folk, classic alongside crossover, rock alongside New Age.
The first album, "Last of Songs" was a joint project with Irit Dekel, the second, "A Train View" was a solo piano album and the third, "Air for More Years" included 11 songs. The EP "Three Old Words" (from which came the single that bears the EP's name as well as a special renewal for Beyonce's "HALO" performed with Liora Isaac). The EP was launched in a show at the Abraham Hostel, Tel Aviv.
