Urban Shamanism - The works of Ma Tan & InSpirala

Mar 11, 3:00pm

Idea Fab Labs Chico

Somewhere between the openly sprawling magic of the natural world and the intricate precision of technology lies the human experience. For our next incubator artist exhibit, Idea Fab Labs Chico is proud to present URBAN SHAMANISM, a daring exploration of this inescapable duality by award-winning inventor and Forbes under-30 entrepreneur Matan Berkowitz and artisan craftress InSpirala. Utilizing the contradictory yet symbiotic connection between organic and inorganic mediums including wood, resin, living plants and interactive electronics, these works are an open dialog between our origins and our future. With pieces that range from minute sculptures to immersive installations, this collection blurs the line between the tactile and the sensory. Come feel the tension and the harmony that exists along the line where yin meets yang. This event is free and family friendly. Please, no pets. Service animals only. View Matan's work: matanb.com/ View InSpirala's work: inspirala.co/

3½ years ago my friend Dov Rosen invited me and 2 other (incredible) musicians to perform blindfolded - improvising music while he places different instruments in our hands and touches our heads to let us know when to play, when to sing and when to pause.
Since that show, his concept grew into the Blind Orchestra - which has toured both Israel and India with changing groups of musicians surrendering their sight and getting lost in the sound of the moment.

Tonight were coming full circle as I join an absolutely killer line up onstage in Tel Aviv - following blindly to wherever the music leads. 
הערב! עיוורים באוזן -ערב חד-פעמי עם Blind Orchestra

We won! In more ways than one.
Last night I was part of a team that picked up a  prize at the awesome MTFBerlin hackathon.
The idea? MuzeBox, a wireless mixer that allows people to connect, jam and stream music easily.

But the real prize here is that our small team was comprised of an Iranian developer-designer couple (the amazingly talented Rojan and Marzie) and an Israeli inventor (yours truly) - proving once again that music, technology and creativity are stronger than politics, borders and prejudice.
