On the verge between acoustic and electronic, improvised and composed, Hatzatz (“gravel” in Hebrew) was an experimental trio, active between 2010-2013. The music was created through a collaborative working process and featured improvisation as much as pre-composed structures. Hatzatz often collaborated with visual artists (live video, graphic design, web design).

The group members:

  • Maya Felixbrodt (viola, electronics),
  • Tomer Harari (electronics, harmonium, objects)
  • Ilya Ziblat Shay (contrabass, electronics)

Hatzatz played in venues and festivals such as: Studio Loos, StateXnewForms, Korzo theater (the Hague), OCW (Rotterdam), SCHELD’APEN festival (Antwerp), Audioscoop (Maastricht). In November 2012 the group has released its first CD, recorded live at the LOOS studio (with the kind support of KUNSTENISRA√čL, Amsterdam).
