Biography

(2000 – present)

Blackfield is a collaboratorive music project led by Israeli rock singer Aviv Geffen. Together with the English musician Steven Wilson, they have released three albums under the moniker: Blackfield and Blackfield II as equal partners, and Welcome to My DNA with Geffen taking a more dominant role. With the release of Blackfield IV in 2013, Wilson is taking an even more passive role, acting only as a contributor and mixer, and played his last live show with Blackfield in April 2014.

Current band members are drummer Tomer Z, bassist Seffy Efrati, and keyboardist Eran Mitelman. Former band members include Chris Maitland (replaced by Tomer Z, 2004) and Daniel Salomon (replaced by Eran Mitelman, 2007).

Collaborative era:
Formed after a meeting in 2000, the partnership blossomed into a cross-cultural collaboration called Blackfield.

Aviv had discovered Porcupine Tree in the mid ‘90s and followed their career development. In 2000 he invited the band to perform some concerts in Israel and met with Steven in London to discuss working together. Before long they had collaborated on the first Blackfield song. In 2001 the two met in a studio in Tel Aviv with the intention of recording a one-off EP.

The results of the session were so impressive however, that the EP was cancelled and the decision was made to continue writing and recording a full length album. Over the next 18 months the pair fitted in Blackfield writing and recording sessions whenever they could between their other commitments and finally in October 2003 the debut album was complete.

    http://www.laboratoriummuzycznychfuzji.com/2014/07/felietorium-artyzm-egoizmu.html FELIETON - Steven Wilson wypowiedział kiedyś niebywale dobitne słowa. Idei przyświeca jednak kanwa egoizmu, toteż nie każdy się z tym zgodzi, ale analizując jej sedno, pojęcie artysty zmienia swoje oblicze, a może trafniej byłoby tu napisać – odkrywa w istocie absolut owej terminologii.

    всё, что делает Уилсон - интересно априори. А тут ещё и Авив Геффен - тоже не последняя сошка в рок-музыке. Известный в своих (израильских до появления в Blackfield) кругах. Слушал толком первые два альбома - очень красивая и меланхоличная музыка - то, что надо.

    I think IV is pretty good, but this is only my opinion.

    DNA better than Blackfield II? HOW?

    I like actually the first two albums... the DNA is a bit lame album, IV too. At least I can say that there is no worse Blackfield album.

    I still need to give IV more listens, but my general impression after re-listening all Blackfield is that the odd (I/DNA) albums are better. I absolutely adore the debut and like DNA very much except for On The Plane. II feels a bit monotonous to me and IV is quite inconsistent. Let's hope this pattern holds and V will be great. :)
