Toy piano and humming: Shira Langman

Fragments of melody and sounds are scattered in silence. Sometimes they are played, at other times hummed. Hints for an entire world one can only guess.

Kiki Keren Hoss, a composer and sound artist, frequently collaborates with artists in the plastic arts and dance fields. She investigates the combination of acoustic and electro-acoustic music, as well as opera and Music Theater, frequently by using materials from her immediate surroundings and everyday reality, from which she is trying to create images of inner worlds.

Shira played under Ilan Volkov, Zsolt Nagy and Omer Meir Wellber. She works with artists in the performance arts, plastic arts and design.
