ORI LICHTIK

Since their first collaboration on Bertolina, Lichtik has created alongside Gai and Sharon throughout the choreographic process, reflecting off of the dancers’ movements, and as often inspiring and prompting them with the tone and pace of his percussive sounds and rhythms. The compositions result in precise sets that structure the works. Each live show is then improvised with fresh layers of digitally manipulated effects, creating a unique sound experience for every event.
One of the founding fathers of the techno scene in Israel, he has created, produced and spinned musical productions, techno raves and various other music and performance events since 1996. During the last decade Lichtik has taught and coordinated the DJ Department of Muzik, college for musical productions.
