descriptions, reviews, &c.

"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

"Ayelet Lerman is a performance, installation and sound artist living in Jerusalem. She researches the non-verbal emotional field that stretches through the use of sound, music, sculpture, and movement. Ayelet was a young classical violist when she decided to look for new directions in life. She finished a BA in philosophy and biology and travelled in India. Her return to the art world was through her studies at the School of Visual Theater in Jerusalem where she finished the four years course at 2010. Her final work, "Stringed", an installation-performance, granted her an award from the Jerusalem Mayor. Since November 2010 she is the curator of "Wire Tapping", the experimental music series at Barbur Gallery, Jerusalem. In June 2012, she concluded a year and a half residency program at mamuta at the Daniela Passal's arts and media center in Jerusalem with a solo exhibition of performance-installations. She finds a place for her experimental art and music in numerous art events, festivals and exhibitions."
