Elyakim, Dganit : Failing Better (Aural Terrains)

Label: Aural Terrains    
Released in: Greece/UK    


"Dganit Elyakim (born in Tel-Aviv, 1977) is a composer and sound-artist. Her music depicts various aspects of the human and the digital paradigm. Through MIDI protocols and algorithmically based behaviours of the computer-performer she confronts the human musician with a digital based reality. She is a co-founder of the new media ensemble 'Turing Dames' and the curator of the concert series 'The Unbearable Lightness of Coherency'. Her works include various collaborations with dance, art-film, video-art, new-media and theatre.

Elyakim was awarded the Israeli Prime Minister's Prize in composition (2011) and the American-Israel-Cultural-Foundation grant among others. Her music has been featured at events and venues such as Ars Electronica (Linz), Gaudeamus Festival (Amsterdam), KOMA Festival, (Belgrade), Kölner Musiknacht (Cologne), Steim (Amsterdam), Het Nuthuis (The Hague), Israel Festival (Jerusalem), and HaTeiva (Tel Aviv).

Dganit graduated in Music and Philosophy at the Haifa University under the supervision of Prof. Arik Shapira. She has completed postgraduate studies in composition and electronic music at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague under the supervision of Matrijn Padding, Gilius van Bergeijk and Clarence Barlow."-Aural Terrains

"I don’t regard [Failing Better] as a commercial product but as a cultural one, a subjective point-of-view of a specific time-space reality that wants to dialogue with as many people as possible."-Dganit Elyakim
