Sound Requires a Medium is supported by Outset Contemporary Art Fund, the Ministry of Culture, and the Israeli Lottery Arts Council

The CCA is pleased to present Sound Requires a Medium, Maya Dunietz’s first solo, large-scale, site-specific, sound art exhibition. Dunietz is a composer, musician, and sound artist based in Israel whose work ranges from composing for ensembles and choirs, performing as a pianist and singer, and creating sound installations. She founded the Givol Choir, an experimental vocal ensemble and is a member of the band “Habiluim.” Her work has been presented at venues including the Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2014), Arnolfini, UK (2013), and the Swiss Pavilion at the Venice Biennale (2011). Dunietz has recently been awarded the Prime Minister’s Prize for Composers.

Dunietz works at the intersection of visual art, music, sound, and performance. In all of these mediums, her practice is abstract and experimental, intent on shifting viewers’ and listeners’ attention to the essence of perception. Dunietz is inspired by sound theorists, scientists and philosophers, such as Lord Kelvin and his exploration of sound, matter and space, and Pauline Oliveros who coined the term and practice of “Deep Listening” that aims to connect individuals to their environments and open us up to one another.

We’ll Take It From Here:
6 Pop-Performative Études and a Talk
with Ariel Efraim Ashbel and Friends
Thursday, January 7, 2016 | 7 pm
With: Efrat Aviv, Jessica Gadani, Osnat Kelner
and Jan-Sebastian Šuba, Ariel Cohen
Musical Director: Maya Dunietz
Technology: Yair Reshef
 
The CCA presents an assembly of scenes from works created collaboratively by Ariel Efraim Ashbel and Maya Dunietz over the past decade. The event is the first survey of this dynamic collaboration and contextualizes the merging of two practices based on a set of strategies for building realities and constructing narratives. Ashbel and Dunietz’s collaborations address core questions around the complex relationships between image, sound, object, and body. Their works are composed from the clashes and tensions between different disciplines and a suspicious stance towards hierarchies, while not distinguishing between references to pop culture and experimental or “refined” traditions.
 
The collection of works is performed by Tel Aviv and Berlin based performers and features scenes from: 1982 (2005), JAWZ (2006), Chikos (2009), Friday (2010), All White People Look the Same to Me (2013) and Untitled (Trio A) (2015).

Michal Oppenheim: Eres
Monday, 18. January 18 | 7pm
 
The CCA is pleased to present an evening of lullabies for adults. The performance weaves together poems by Yonatan Levy and Zelda, set to music by Michal Oppenheim. With lullabies as a historical starting point, “Eres” also considers them as a way of closing the day, or marking the end of a life. The work encapsulates the ceremonious as well as daily life and offers a space for hypnotic musical dream-states.
 
Michal Oppenheim is a singer and composer who has been involved in various projects, from the experimental Givol choir, to creating sound installations. In 2014, she released her debut album, “Playlist.”

Boom2: Performance by
Maya Dunietz and Daniel Meir
Wednesday, 17. February 2016 | 7 pm
Artist Talk:
Maya Dunietz in Conversation with
Daniel Meir and Gilad Ratman
 
“Boom” is a new solo performance by Maya Dunietz and Daniel Meir with video and sound by Daniel Meir that recently premiered at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. Using voice, piano, and a unique projection technique, the work was developed with technologies including a tiny wireless mouth-speaker, acoustic feedback, a multi-dimensional electro acoustic sound layer, as well as the hypnotic layering of projections. These come together as layers of sound, image, and consciousness that explore the materialization of sound.
