Concerts in Tel Aviv, Haifa, NYC and Boston

Carrying on the tradition of ACF's Sonic Circuits International Festival of Electronic Music and Art, ACF New England was proud to present an exciting new collaboration between American and Israeli composers in November and December of 2006.

The SONIC CIRCUITS 2006 festival featured concerts and related events in four Israeli and American cities: Tel Aviv, Haifa, Boston, and New York. It commenced on November 3 with a concert produced in conjunction with the Tel Aviv Biennale of New Music, with subsequent events in Jerusalem and Haifa in the days following. The American events took place between November 29 and December 9 in Boston and New York. The festival featured works by composers Neil Leonard, Kiki Keren-Huss, Amnon Wolman, Arie Shapira, Dennis Miller, Jonathan Chen, Yosi Mar-Chaim, Ido Govrin, and Keren Rosenbaum, including live performances with electronics, video art, sound installation, and compositions for electroacoustic tape.

Sonic Circuits was made possible by funding from the Argosy Foundation, the Boston-Haifa Connection of the Combined Jewish Philanthropies, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and in-kind support from Berklee College of Music, Northeastern University, Gallery Artists Studio Projects (GASP), the Music Department of the University of Haifa, and the Tel Aviv New Music Biennale. ACFNE is also grateful to Beth Denisch, our founding Director, for her inspiration and initiative as the original architect of Sonic Circuits 2006, and to Neil Leonard and Kiki Keren-Huss for curating and producing the events.
