Adi Snir

Born in 1987, Adi Snir is an Israeli composer and improviser.  His music looks into the different relationships and inner characteristics of disassembly and rearrangement of the ensembles as a whole and of each individual quality of music as well as the different time frames and context brought on by meta phenomenological connotations and textualization while attempting to include and disrupt simultaneously those present and those who happen to be at a hearing radius, usually in the audience but not necessarily, depending on the situation and reason of being which may turn out to be completely unimportant considering life and society as a whole with its inner most characteristics thought to be revealed yet never quite truthfully so, given the way in which we grasp our own thought process and realize it is completely useless to try and make a point due to our inability to actually go outside of our own mind and thought which can be easily broken and willfully deceived by another who tries to claim it as art but is really only trying his best to say something which is not always clear even to himself, yet something hopefully manages to get through and when that happens.

He is a graduate of the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music in Tel Aviv University and currently enrolled as a doctoral student at Harvard University in music composition. Among others, his works were performed by ensembles: Diotima, Xasax, Meitar and the International Ensemble Modern Academy.
