Guest Lecture: Lior Pinsky

“Lior Pinsky is a musician and sound artist whose work is focused on cassette tape manipulation and analog synthesis. Bringing together textures, field recordings, found sounds and obscured melodies, Pinsky leads his listeners into a journey through imaginary realms of existence and void. His music is a call for the unknown to reveal itself. Pinsky’s prolific output includes seven albums and EPs, he regularly writes scores for the stage and his music is played in performances, experimental theater and contemporary dance performing worldwide.”

Born in the provincial yet holy city of Jerusalem (1981), Pinsky saw rock bottom when, aged 14, two stolen slices of (not very fresh) bread were taken from him for not eating in the designated place and time at the boarding school he was sent to. 

A decade later, ​on the way to class at the history department of the Hebrew university, he went impulsively into the mythological piano shop Goren Piano’s and bought the cheapest piano they had. A week later he took his first music lesson, and after just two months he participated in a recital in front of all the other 10 year old pupils parents. At 2011, he graduated with excellence (Mayor award) from the New Music department at Musrara Interdisciplinary School of Arts, Jerusalem. Ever since, Pinsky is on the search for new aesthetics in sound, stage, ways for contemplation and other interesting things to do.
