Tal Isaac Hadad, French artist, Live and work in Paris

Tal Isaac Hadad develops performances as a celebration of connection and encounter where one learns to listen. He creates listening experiences and collective research leading to new forms of public exchange and musical narratives. His previous works have been presented at the museum of herault (bps22), the Paris Philharmonie, at Verbo festival in Sao Paulo, at international Istanbul and Fiac Paris performance programme.

His last collection of pieces involved opera singers and orchestra choir bringing a large public together with continuous performances and art installation. Using physiological acoustics and collective psychology, “singing” become a tool addressing the attention to new types of sensory responses. Setting new parameters for the audience. Whether it engages the brain, the body of the performers or the public in meditative, primal, intimate expériences.
