Musical Temple 4: Her Majesty’s Ship

- WED 6.7
MoBY: Museums of Bat Yam
Her Majesty’s Ship started its journey at the beginning of a worldwide plague. In the home studio of the nightlife admiral Haim Vitali, when he’s bearing his electric guitar, various effects and a suitcase filled with pieces inspired by his classical-musical education. Since then, the soviet Capitan Max Gertzen and the pirate skipper Sharon Sometimes have joined the ship’s crew, and the voyage reaches many ports across the soundscape.
Influenced by soundtracks of westerns and sci-fi movies, classic guitar arrangements by composers like Bach and Francisco Tárrega, and contemporary influences of Ennio Morricone, Philip Glass and Michael Nyman – the group plays original instrumental music.
HMS is bringing an embracing gospel to our modern, rest-deprived world. Its goal is to invoke emotion with sweet melodies of guitar and string, romantic arpeggios, echos and feedback, which create the circumstances to sail deep in the sounds.
