Jerusalem In My Heart
Daqa’iq Tudaiq

Montréal audiovisual duo Jerusalem in my Heart (Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre) return after three years with Daqa’iq Tudaiq. Set to excite such blogs ‘n’ mags as The Wire, A Closer Listen and The Quietus as much as did its predecessor If He Dies, If If If If If If, the album offers fascinating and unusual textures in two separate parts: a new orchestral reinterpretation of an Egyptian classic on side A and some full-on avant garde skewing of traditional Arabic styles on side B. Something highly modern, unique, diasporic and well-made.

Jerusalem In My Heart
If He Dies, If If If If If If

Radwan Ghazi Moumneh has had a long relationship with Constellation, Montreal's banner-label for post-rock and any experimental music that grows from its roots. He's produced records for post-punkers Ought and avant-jazz artist Matana Roberts, made albums with folk-warper Eric Chenaux, and he also makes records under the moniker Jerusalem In My Heart. Mo7it Al-Mo7it, his debut record, collated stuttering electronics with improvised buzuk playing. His new record, the gorgeous If He Dies, If If If If If If, sees the two aspects of his sound interact more formally, while also incorporating field recordings of the Lebanese ocean and steadfast flute drone.

Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart
Suuns and Jerusalem In My Heart

Available on 12” vinyl LP or CD from Secretly Canadian. Sunns and Jerusalem in my Heart is the result of a seven day collaboration session from 2012 between Sunns and Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in my Heart). After a couple of years they revisit the material, edit, re-work, and mix it for a full joint release. Analogue synths, arpeggiator filled, with an arabic mentality, would go nicely with Oneohtrix Point Never and Blanck Mass.

Jerusalem In My Heart
Mo7it Al-Mo7it

This 2013 record may have been Jerusalem In My Heart’s debut LP, but the project had been running for almost a decade prior to the release of Mo7it Al-Mo7it. An ongoing audio-visual series centred around the efforts of Lebanese producer/musician Radwan Ghazi, the sonic output of the project weds experimental electronica with classical Arabic modes. The potent, smoky productions here nod to Carla Bozulich and Suuns.
