Asaf Avidan is no newcomer to the songwriting scene, but with his new album "The Study On Falling" he dares to make a new start. This not only applies to his voice, which was once confusingly similar to Janis Joplin's, but has now become an androgynous trademark, which is associated solely with the name Asaf Avidan. Never before has the Israeli bard with his still unusually high timbre sounded so haunting as on this CD. The topic of failure is only one of several aspects. With "Falling" he takes up a very topical problem, because globally as well as in many biographies the topic of stumbling and failure seems to play an increasingly central role. "There are many facets to falling," says Avidan.
The Israeli Asaf Avidan is an exceptional talent. Not only is his high falsetto voice unique, his music always wants to be art instead of just pop. His concept work "Poor Boy/Lucky Man" is hard to beat and after the fickle remix of "One Day" he made some concessions to the zeitgeist that had brought him so many young listeners.
