Hadas Pe’ery is a composer, sound artist, educator and activist. Her artistic work focuses on experimental electronics and unconventional interfaces for interaction between performers and machines. Seeking to challenge the hackneyed relationships between performers, composers and audience, she creates digital tools that reposition these agents and force them to reinvent their role.

An interdisciplinary artist, she collaborates with choreographers, directors and visual artists throughout the world. Her works are regularly commissioned and performed throughout America, Europe and Asia by institutes and ensembles such as IRCAM (Fr), Court-Circuit (Fr), MusikFabrik (De), Akademie der Künste Berlin (De), Meitar Ensemble (Isr), the Chelsea Symphony (NY) among others.

Hadas teaches composition and electro-acoustics at the Tel Aviv University. She is curator of “This is What Happens When You Play with Electricity”, a concert series for experimental electro-acoustic music that aims to introduce new audiences to the genre and promote women and non-binary composers.

A social and political activist, Hadas is involved in numerous initiatives that advocate for Palestinian, refugee, women and worker rights.
