Goldmine Magazine Review of Noa Fort’s New Album
As Israeli musician Noa Fort gears up for the release concert of her new album, “Everyday Actions,” in NYC on December 3rd 2021, Goldmine Magazine published a review of the album:
“Everyday Actions (ears&eyes Records), the second album as a leader by Noa Fort, has the pianist/composer/vocalist/music therapist singing soothing melodies as she plays mellifluous piano, oftentimes by herself, or with trumpet, bass, drums. There are no words to her vocals. They fly, light as the breeze, atop the instrument(s), like a fluttering bird, but with clarity, precision and dedication to premise. It’s good for you. Like health food. This amazing woman left her original field of biology, researching bird migration in her native Tel Aviv, Israel. A New Yorker since 2013, her intent is to give “space to the listener to bring his or her own meaning and interpretation to each piece.” She also works with special-needs children. “Music can be used for more than self-expression. It can be used to create a connection where words fail, a path to healing, and a terrain to explore the self in relation to others.” This is haunting, mysterious, compelling music. But don’t believe me, see for yourself. https://noafort.bandcamp.com/album/everyday-actions“.
