Winter Family is a duet of spoken text and music, and this is their debut album, which Sub Rosa has audaciously released as a full-length double CD, packaged in a deluxe fold-out digipack. Born on January 2004 in Jaffa from the meeting of the Israeli artist Ruth Rosenthal and the French musician Xavier Klaine, they recorded their first album in three apartments, a parking lot, a club in Tel-Aviv and a church in Lorraine. Rosenthal writes and performs her texts in English and Hebrew while he composes and plays the piano, harmoniums and pipe organ. They have been playing live since June 2005 in concert rooms, galleries, clubs, churches and theaters in Paris, New York, Milan, Gent, Tel-Aviv, Jerusalem and more. They have played live on several radios in France and Israel, on the TV channel France5 (in a show together with Arthur H. and Brigitte Fontaine), on HotTv in Israel and composed the theme song for the movie A Corps Defendant by Raphael Etienne. Winter Family have scored dance pieces, and have collaborated with various artists such as Norsola Johnson (Godspeed You! Black Emperor). These songs are singular meditations in sound and text: rich, contemplative, and thrillingly abstract.
