God is Good to Daddy Eldad Tsabary

In “God is Good to Daddy” I represent my own blurry childhood memories of my father Haim Sabari. Recollections of my dad’s daily activities, his favorite music, shreds of his poems, and emotionally-memorable moments are all put together in a flowing, fluid mixture of sound and color. The blending of these diverse elements results in a dream-like sequence that follows a subconscious, free-association-type logic; elements of different nature are melted together through the use of acoustic mirrors, fading, the shifting of effects from one element to another, and, inescapably, a generous amount of reverb. The dream-like sequence culminates in the most dominant of all reminiscences: my father’s untimely death at the age of 44.
