Daniel Davidovsky’s work, ExHighTech, is part of his ongoing process of creating sound devices from inexpensive sources.
ExHighTech utilizes disposed technical devices, such as old computer parts and peripherals, obsolete digital cameras, cell phones and a diverse range of powered toys and gadgets, amplifying their electro-magnetic field and improvising and interacting between them in real time.
The piece "Old Chant" is played by violin player Yael Barolsky and Daniel Davidovsky on a 4-track cassete tape device and amplified electro-magnetic fields. At the beginning of the piece an old Hebrew song is played on the tape which in time is deconstructed and rebuilt in a nostalgic but conflictive mood -reflecting somehow the conflictive cultural and political reality in Israel.
"Lo Kalit" is an electro-acoustic composition for recorded voices (refugees testimonials) and four saxophones.
Reflecting its social content, the piece is comprised of a small circle of saxophone players surrounded by a larger circle of audience, who are in turn, surrounded by a sound system.
Daniel Davidovsky plays on a system based on unstable elements. The common denominator of these elements is the use of audio feedback and the disruption of conventions.
