Amir Eldor is a Guitarist, Composer/Musician, Sound Engineer and self-taught Programmer from Israel. Amir plays the guitar for the Heavy/Glam Metal band LOUD n' CLEAR and has his own personal musical project called "Closet Hand".
Born in 30th of August in Haifa, Israel, to Simon and Hani. Amir was raised in Qiryat Motzkin with his older brother Alon.
At the age of 9, Amir started taking guitar lessons with encouragement from his mother. After 6 years of studying guitar, Amir met Shay Lelinger, and as musician friends they played and Amir gained a lot of experience and technique in guitar playing.
At the age of 15, his brother Alon told him of a local Glam Metal band looking for a Lead Guitar player. Hesitant at first, Amir was convinced by Alon to go to an audition for the band as it would be like Steve Vai joining David Lee Roth, and they both found that funny. The band, LOUD n' CLEAR, accepted Amir as their new Lead Guitar player without second thought, despite his young age comparing the band members and other promising guitarists already being auditioned for the same position.
As for the programming part of Amir's life, it began at the age of 11 with Alon starting his own studies of software development at high school. Alon showed Amir a few lines of code and Amir got fascinated by the subject. Mainly being interested in video game development, Amir learned new programming languages, technologies and techniques and produced his first video game titled "Lousy Man". Lousy Man became a hit among Amir's friends as its README file tipped the player to "think you are mister commando".
A few years later, Amir developed the video games "Poo Madness" (later known as "Insect Of Terror") and "Manowar3". Around 2012, Amir started to produce 'remakes' of his classic games along with Lousy Man being renamed "Berserkore".
