Maayan Tsadka

Israel

Maayan Tzdaka - Composer, Sound Artist, Improviser, Sound Explorer, and Teacher. At the root of all her works is an attempt to extract an understanding of the nature of sound, its behavior, acoustic ways of organization, and its environmental and social roles. Maayan is interested in uncovering and amplifying layers and musical patterns—hidden, inherent structures— which occur acoustically, as well as in an exploration of the ways in which the sonic phenomena meet the physiology of the ear and the psychology of listening. Often, Maayan’s work incorporates a dimension of imaginary and speculative sonic worlds, on the line between crypto-zoology, crypto-botany, and futuristic folklore. Current fields of research and creative work include prehistoric harmony, sonic taxonomy, sound as a museal exhibit, tuning systems, sonic botany, underwater sounds, field recordings, and echo/resonance in musical, natural, political, and social contexts. Maayan completed a DMA in music composition from UC Santa Cruz. She currently teaches at the School of the Arts in Haifa University and in Sapir College. Research fellow at the Morris Kahn Marine Research Station, Charney School of Marine Sciences, Haifa University.
