Join us for a fascinating behind-the-scenes look into the thrilling process of creating a soundtrack with Tomer Katz, the musical producer behind the soundtrack of the latest Israeli mega-hit TV series “Dismissed” (“Ha’Mefakedet”). Sit in on this special session of Dr. Shayna Weiss’s class, “Israeli Popular Culture: Language, Gender, and Politics.”
The class will provide an overview of the popular music industry in Israel, including all of the major trends and influences that make it so unique, as well as Katz’s business strategy as an independent musical artist. We will take a deep dive into the artistic process and creative challenges in writing music, lyrics and themes inspired by Israel’s social dilemmas and diverse identities that are expressed in the series, by the characters and their experiences in the Israel Defense Forces. The session will conclude with a special interactive live show!
Tomer Katz is a Tel Aviv-based producer/writer who has acquired recent buzz under the moniker D Fine Us. Graduated with excellence from Rimon School of Music, Katz has worked with some of Israel’s top contemporary musicians, such as Noga Erez, Rona Kenan, Netta Barzilai and many more. Pulling references from jazz, soul and R&B, Katz mixes old with new, infusing contemporary, electronic textures to create a compelling pastiche of “culture-clashed” music.
