Title: The Opera is Closed (or Opera Lost)
Description:
The crisis in Israel had weird appearance: many lost their jobs, firms bankrupted but the prices continue to raise up, flats get more expansive.
There is a huge economical differences between groups in the society and that gap is getting bigger. There is a big disconnection between the ones that holds the power and the common people.
This track tries to catch that image of the reach part that oppressed the common people with economical tools. Some musical battle which confront Opera elements with modern sounds. It is sure: we lost the opera at the end.
The sounds are all original and computer-generated (also the orchestra sounds).

Title: Something happens in the city
Description:
This part emphasize the sensation of fear while wondering in the hectic streets of a city in bad times.

Sound of Ebb: Heart-Lung Machine

Name: Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen
Location: Montreal, Canada and Tel Aviv, Israel

Description:

The Sound of Recession

The sound of recession is collaborative. It is the result of music and art making that is based on sharing and working together. It focuses on shared intellectual, emotional, and body knowledge and creativity rather than ownership and ego. It is about opening up, experimenting with new ideas, listening to others, and letting go of personal fixations and old patterns. It requires disposing of self importance and experiencing the moment.

Heart-Lung Machine by Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen (2009)
Duration: 5:51

Heart-Lung Machine is a collaborative composition between Canadian composer Eldad Tsabary and Israeli performer/improviser Yifat Cohen, in which Tsabary processed and reorganized improvised material provided by Cohen. The specific reorganizational technique used in the piece was the creation of rhythmic strata through multi-layered gating of individual sound sources, in which each gate was configured to open at different amplitude and in response to different parts of the spectrum of another (inaudible) sound source. Auditory streaming occurs as a result of developing rhythmic patterns in each gate, individual envelope settings, spatial positioning, and sometimes signal processing. This gating setup was created in Pro Tools.
