(5 minute excerpt)

New Jerusalem is a research based project which culminated in a bureaucratic musical performance at Jerusalem City Council’s monthly assembly. The work brings together religious rituals and political performance. In the presence of the mayor of Jerusalem and city council members, an Orthodox cantor sang clause of Jerusalem’s urban plan: “Master Plan 2000.”  The concert was broadcast live to the Bezalel school of Architechture where panelists  analyzed the plan’s historical, legal and political components.
