"A prophetable musical performance by the newly established spiritzcualic enhancement orchestra".
The Spiritczualic Enhancement Orchestra is a recently founded musical ensemble rooted in the ‘Spiritczualic’ idea of its members. Together with the Surprise Outernational Artists Association they create “prophetable”, unexpected and improvised concerts emphasizing the ceremonial ritual of collective-musical-transcendence.
Drummer Nicolas Sheikoleslami and Keyboardist Omri Shmulewitz had met 3 years earlier, at the “Karl Kutter” (Kolkata) stage of the Fusion Festival in Germany. After intending to merge their musical forces for quite some time, Nicolas had the strong intuition to do so in Jerusalem. From there, the founding duo embarked upon a psycho-magical exploration in dream-reality, as Omri and Nicolas felt a coming together of elusive fates and interwoven cues.
"Searching for a room to rehearse and record in, they come across a magical and abandoned building, where once upon a time the Talmud was translated. They meet ‘Aladdin’, a master-builder who helps them create a secret and impeccably acoustic, noise-proof room. He then joins the band on guitar. It is by such ‘intervention’ that the rest of the ensemble comes together - bassist Gilad Levin and custom-soundsource-maker Sasha Lee. Briefly after quitting
a professional orchestra, knowing it would lead ‘somewhere’, and with the ensemble searching for exactly this instrument, Yael Lavie joins on Qanun - the day before their premiere. As with all their escapades, everyone may witness the synchronicities the Spiritczualics find at play. Or rather, “how they play upon us”, they would say."
Due to government intervention with the deserted building they had established for the needs of the Spiritczualic Enhancement Center, the movement's leadership - together with the Surprise Outernational Artists Association - decided to embark on an international tour. Expect the unexpected as new venues and artists are drawn into the transmutative allure of this strange-as-life ensemble.
