othing prepared us to the fact that Jungle Funk party in Alik farm in Michmoret, would be be such a blast great party.
We actually had hard time on the way out of Tel-Aviv, me and Micha AKA DJ Shimi sonic was picked up by my good mate Itay Kermer. it didnt took long before we got pulled aside by the traffic police just to get an uber-high fine over a sit-belt, a ticket which took the man in blue a whole 43 minutes to write [!!!]
with 3 long faces we moved on to try and make it through Thursday traffic jams – to make it on time for set up.
Arriving at the beauty sand dunes nature reserve that surrounds Alik farm, walking via high eucalyptus trees with screaming huge peacocks on them !! as set up of sound and screen was still going on. we entred the party spot.
Its took a while to end set up and a longer while for the crowd to get in.
Even my good friend Eva showd up to shake her pregnant belly, and to my great surprise, Iv’e met Tamar and others TelAvivians that came in there as well !
Only than the where that special magic happened.
A blend of amazing good vibe crowd and music style swings that slides via multi genres by Uriel – DJ Prince of Persia opend our apetite, But when Shimi Sonic took the reins for a tight funky spin, the party really took of .
Fire artist, Juggling and acrobats , cool funky crowd and smiles all around while DJ Bushbeatz was next in line,
i had amazing time, see the pics of visuals screen and crowd below
Thanks Adar and Omri BushBeatz, thank Jimmy, Itay and Eva

2009 srarted with a lot of fun at Asaph [Tailor.vj] and Keren’s place, together with Noam and yours truly,
Drinking wine and munching goodies at our weekly “Wacom Forum” experiment where we draw and sketch with our wacoms [pen tablets] live to music – with Asaph’s new application Snowflake – an application he writes in processing and Java for this very purpose, and still is in the make, tailored to our wishes and needs.
in the meantime, we use also other open source other apps , hooking few laptops via the v4 video mixer and net, enjoying the ability to draw live together on the same output – projected on the wall live to music.
Noam took the lead “sketcher” role, while Asaph and i add the 2nd layers of colors, and “beat feel” textures, than erasing and making new room for a fresh sketch.
part of the fun is the ability to render the sketches to a mov video file pretty fast, while keeping its wight very light.
i hope to be able to upload soon some pictures we took and maybe also video animation bits we rendered.
- you are mostly welcome to try and use Snowflake with your Wacom:
so far – for pc users only.
anyone who’s interested in adding ideas or cooperate with us – are welcome to get in touch
Happy new 2009
