Radio Concrete

 
Radio Concrete is a monthly radio show and an ongoing experimental project which deals with 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.
 
It has been played live in all kinds of venues and also got a regular spot on Halas.am (ISR), Radio Papesse (ITA) and Resonance Extra (UK).
 

Chronicles

 
Chronicles is a project created specifically for the radio program Radio-Art by Meira Asher in Kol-Hacampus 106fm.
 
It is a weekly format of works that attempt to trace the sounds and happenings on a weekly basis and compress them to 4-5 minutes of sonic experience.
 
Fresh raw materials were collected every week including field recordings, sampled radio, toys, synthesizers and recordings sent by the listeners of this program.
 

Rendezvous

 
Hagai's major musical release to date is with his band Rendezvous. Their album Another Round Please received excellent reviews from the press and numerous plays on the radio, especially in the UK, as well as the rest of Europe.

24 Hours

 
24 Hours is a piece that encapsulates the radio news editions that are broadcasted here in Israel every hour all day long.
It takes 24 consecutive news editions of one specific day where an extreme event called the "Hebron shooting incident" occurred and attempts to show how the story evolves during that day on the news and to explore the contradiction between the violence and other daily events that were reported during that day.
