Experimental Israel by Ophir Ilzetzki
Halas Radio will host a new series from its studio at the Israeli Centre for Digital Art in Holon. The project, Experimental Israel, will include a weekly broadcast with musicians or artists related to the experimental scene in Israel. Through interviews and new commissions from the featured artists we will attempt to trace the outlines of the experimental scene at large, and ask whether there is a style that could be regarded as Israeli experimentalism.
Although the series will not necessarily attempt to answer the main questions, it will create an ongoing narrative leading us through the main focal points of the Israeli scene. In effect, the series will serve as a snapshot in time allowing a more knowing and aware conversation on a topic that until now has been almost completely neglected.
Weekly sessions with featured artists will take place in Halas Radio's studio at the Israeli Centre for Digital Art in Holon and will be broadcast live on www.halas.am. Occasionally the project will host a live broadcast featuring an unlikely pairing of artists on one stage. This laboratory-like concert will aid us in shedding even more light on a scene still discovering its borders.
