Flowers / Ghost & Echoes
Audio-visual project that explores the physical and digital, controllable and out of control, something contemplative and yet overbearing, simple but complicated, fascinated with things beautiful but also hidden in unexpected places.
An improvising electric guitar duo with Gonçalo Oliveira and James Alexandropoulos Mc-Ewan, explore the unrepeatable and difficult to control aspects of the electric guitar, in sounds that arise unexpectedly from the complexity of the guitar’s electronic circuitry, to big layerings of sounds, to subtle microtonal clashing chords.
Interacting with the performative visuals of Felix Bodin, using his self-designed visual instrument, consists of projections reverberated through the performance space with the use of a malleable mirrored surface which spreads, distorts or focuses digitally generated patterns into unique and dazzling light and projection shows. Sometimes delicate and beautifully serene, other times erratic, unpredictable and exciting.
Radio Concrete by Hagai Izenberg is a monthly experimental radio show, broadcasted at Resonance Extra (UK), Halas AM (ISR) and Radio Papesse (ITA).
It is an exaggerated interpretation of sounds that we are exposed to every day in the public and domestic spheres, often in passing or involuntarily.
Fresh raw materials including field recordings of our everyday routine, samples and loops from tv & radio, news editions and advertisements are all gathered on a regular basis and then mixed together on live radio broadcasting. The radio show attempts to capture the busy modern lifestyle together with the daily news & events, tragedies and political discourse next to advertisements and entertainment.
Radio Concrete is produced and hosted by Hagai Izenberg, an Israeli sound artist, composer and musician and a founder member of the electronic band Rendezvous.
