 Ha'Pzura is an International event presented by the Israeli Center
for Digital Art focused on the production and presentation of
experimental music and sound projects. It includes an exhibition,
concert series, sound intervention series and radio station being
launched for sound art, experimental music, and art enthusiasts.

 Hapzura begins on 13.12.2007 with an exhibition opening of "Works in
Translation" curated by Eyal Danon & Galit Eilat, at the Israeli
Center for Digital Art at 19:00 and is followed by a performance by
Mouse on Mars at Holon's Sports Stadium on the same evening at 21:30.

 The exhibition "Works in Translation" deals with the space between
source text and translation where language falters -- in the silences
and intervals, the facial expressions and paces of breathing and in
the places where we are at a loss for words. Through this exhibition
we ask whether and how language expresses that which is impossible to
express and pass on. In these artworks language is stripped to its
foundations, it is broken down into notes, syllables, words- into the
raw form of sound where lies the form of language, which is in itself
also an avenue to communication. The exhibition presents works by Romy
Achituv, Marcus Coates, Adriana Garcia Galan, Eva Koch, Imogen
Stidworthy, Artur Zmijewski, and a special project by Yossi Marhaim
and Michal Naaman.

 A program of sound interventions will be occurring in the city center
of Holon. Interventions offer urban play, altered navigation, and the
familiar made unfamiliar in the streets, passageways, shops and
gymnasiums of the city. Artists include Cathy van Eck, Edwin van der
Heide, Jetzke de Boer, Lior Weinstein, Michal Rothchild, Michal
Rinott, Roee Ben Sira, Marcus Coates, Maya Dunietz,Ariel Efraim
Ashbel, Public Movement, Tikva Morowati & David Hindman & Spencer
Kiser, Uri Katzenstein, Yael Davids, Josef Sprintzak, Ori Drumer.

 The experimental music concert series features International and
Israeli musicians from the fields of free jazz, electronica, and
improvisation. Performances are concentrated over two weekends at Tel
Aviv's Levontin 7, Hazira in Jerusalem and The Israeli Center for
Digital Art in Holon and feature new collaborations between visiting
and local musicians. Participants include Mouse on Mars, Faust,
Bloodstereo, Peter Brotzmann Trio, Eddie Prevost & John Butcher, Eran
Sachs, Musica Genera, Keir Nueringer, Machinefabreik, Malox, Philip
Jeck, Quintet's Quartets, Seventeen Migs of Spring & O.B.E.Y, Igor
Krutogolov Trio, TV Buddhas, Taapet, Arik Shapira, Dora Doll & Alex
Drool, Panda Porn, Ariel Shibolet, Gal & Maurin.

 The Israeli Center for Digital Art is a dynamic platform for
thinking, researching, producing, and presenting contemporary art, as
well as providing a meeting point for exchange between contemporary
artists, curators, critics and the public. The center is a non-profit
organization established in 2001 which devotes a significant part of
its work on art projects that foster questions about identity,
ethnicity, nationalism and cultural exchange. It initiates
partnerships and collaborations with individuals and other
institutions in the Middle East and the Balkan region in an effort to
explore how creative communities from different peripheries of the
world can connect, learn from each other, and break down nationalistic
or regional barriers. The activities of the center are concentrated in
five main areas: The video archive & mobile archive, public
presentations, residency program, education program and publications.
