Jerusalem In My Heart, the Montreal-based experimental film and music performance project helmed by Radwan Moumneh, will soon head out for a string of performances in several cities in Quebec and Canada during May and June.
JIMH’s last live performances followed the release of their critically-acclaimed debut album, Mo7it Al-Mo7it, in March 2013. The album was called “compelling, confounding, and at times, deeply moving” by All Music Guide, and “a daring kick-start for an act brimming with promise” by Tiny Mix Tapes. Those performances featured Moumneh and French musician Jérémie Regnier on various instruments, alongside multiple film projections created by JIMH collaborator Malena Szlam, whose work also formed the album’s artwork.
This time around, JIMH will perform as a duo of Moumneh and Quebec filmmaker Charles-André Coderre. The pair have spent the past several months working up a new body of music and film, which will be presented under the title “if he dies if if if if if if…”. Starting with the work’s first public performance at Toronto’s Music Gallery on May 9, JIMH will then hit the Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville, Edmonton, Saskatoon and Sled Island in Calgary, before returning home to play Montreal’s Usine C as part of the Suoni Per Il Popolo.
Jerusalem In My Heart are responsible for some of the most challenging, elegant and emotionally profound interdisciplinary art we’ve had the pleasure to experience; do not miss these opportunities to witness firsthand.
