Duration: 3 minutes
Text: Rachel by Bat-Sheva Shapira.
World Premiere: July 19, 2007, Guy Barash (live electronics), Bamat Meitzag, Tel Aviv, Israel
In this early electroacoustic work I juxtaposed the poem Rachel by Bat-Sheva Shapira with two lists: the first is a list of the Palestinian villages that have been evacuated and ruined in 1948, and the second, a list of Israeli towns and settlements that were built upon those lands. The title of this composition is a paraphrase on the title of a famous Zionist song.
