Composer and sound artist Amit Gilutz (b.1983) studied composition in Jerusalem, Ithaca and New-York. His music is influenced by working in electroacoustic mediums and improvisation. His pieces tend to be interdisciplinary and conceptual, combining political ideas, theatrical effects and movement, as well as textual sources ranging from the work of Walter Benjamin to anonymous online personal ads. His commitment to collaborative and interdisciplinary work aims at achieving disciplinary cross-fertilization and also reflects a desire for more democratic forms of music making and audience engagement. Amit is particularly fascinated with the question of music’s ability to engage topical events and participate in the practice of social justice. His work was acknowledged by many prizes and is regularly performed across the USA, Europe and Asia.
