Maya Dunietz and Ghédalia Tazartès join forces on a new sound installation and performance project for voices, speakers and recorded materials.
A French musician of Turkish parentage, Ghédalia Tazartès is an uncompromising artist who defies categorization. His public appearances remain exceptional events as he rarely performs in concerts or releases albums, but his recorded catalogue, starting with 1979′s Diasporas, is cult material.
As part of the Fondation Cartier Patti Smith exhibition in 2008, he revisited his last two albums. 5 Rimbaud 1 Verlaine (Jardin au Fou, 2006) is a musical and poetic experiment influenced by the world of Léo Ferré and the atmosphere of a noise festival. Hystérie off Music (Jardin au Fou, 2007) is an infernal musical montage that combines concrete music, imported laments and unidentified sound elements.
Maya Dunietz , born in 1981, is a composer, pianist and sound installation artist. Her work ranges between solo performances, composing for ensembles around the world, writing for theatre, creating sound installations, building electronic instruments, playing and singing. Dunietz founded the experimental vocal ensemble “Givol Choir” and is a member of the Israeli band “Habiluim”.
Among her recent works: Sound installations for the LunaPark and for Ausland in Berlin and for Tectonics festival in Iceland, a solo performance for the 2011 Venice arts Biennale (Swiss Pavilion), musical director of the concerts and notation project of composer Emahoy Tsegue-Mariam Guebrou (with JSOC) including arrangements for string-orchestra.
