Yoav Gal

Brooklyn, NY, USA

Composer and multi-disciplinary artist Yoav Gal specializes in the marriage of music an image. He has devoted his artistic life to the creation of “indie opera” (The New York Times, “Never Say Die in Indie Opera”), a genre that evolved in small spaces, often with limited means, and is designed to provide the audience with an “operatic” experience in a concert hall, a black box theater or a gallery, just as well as in a large opera house. Gal works with a range of new media, such as video projections, computer graphics, web and performance art, while also drawing on traditional practices, especially those of Baroque Opera – vocal virtuosity, highly stylized dramatization and polyphonic settings cast in a clear harmonic language.
