Oded Keren is a composer, electronic musician and performer, B.A. graduate at the academy of music and dance in Jerusalem. He creates music with an approach of absolute eclecticism, open to influences from all musical styles, without differentiation between "high" and "popular" music, mainstream and fringe, and even between music and other artistic mediums. It is music of the internet age, which uses all available resources without or in spite of prejudice.
This preoccupation manifests in two different attitudes in the music – deconstruction and reconstruction of existing sound and music, molding new music out of it, using a "cut-and-paste" method inspired by concrete and industrial music, hip-hop, Stravinsky and Mahler; and using mixed technique in free writing, aspiring to create a dramatic, sensual and passionate music which also bridges between separate musical cultures.
