Omer Senesh: A Video artist\editor, Sound designer, Radio DJ and teacher. Occasional drummer. Cuts, mashes and plays around with digital media (and really misses analogue. is also having a hard time giving up on the magic of RF in favor of the all-pluralist communism of TCP streams). Spends most of his time surrounded by pixels altering 24 (and sometimes 29.97, or 30) times a second, air-waves flowing from his old EVENT monitors. Finished his studies at the Bezalel Art academy in Jerusalem in 2011, and started working at Waves Audio Ltd. which supplies the sound industry with some of the finest sound processing algorithms ever created . Lives mostly in Tel-Aviv, sometimes with a casual hiatus at other, cheaper, cities between the rented Tel-Avivian apartments. Drives an old but amazingly reliable Ford Fiesta, Uses a T2i (550D) Canon to shoot video and Adobe After Effects and Sony Vegas to play around with it. Sometimes DJs (is defiantly in Team NI Traktor!) but mostly VJs (Resolume Arena is the weapon of choice). Is Hopelessly addicted to “Fishermen’s Friend” (and generally to all things mint and Taurine and monosodium glutamate). Sometimes dresses up well, (really only when needed). Doesn’t own a pet, though he thinks it could be nice idea. Preferably a dog. Yes.
Today I am the technical manager of KZradio - an alternative online radio station featuring some of Israel’s best radio talents. We’re striving to set new standards for music radio experience. I used to work as a technician, DJ and editor for many FM radio stations all over Israel – national and local (To name a few: 102FM Radio Tel Aviv, ECO99FM, Radio Haifa 107.5FM, Radio90FM, Galatz 96.6FM), but right now I’ve completely migrated to Webradio. During the summer I work at the chaotic and always-surprising “Teder” Radio-Bar, a semi-pirate radio station+pub+concert hall in Tel Aviv, that produces a drunk, loose, avant-garde sort of radio, Live from right next to the beer taps.
My radio career started some 9 years ago at “Galey Zahal” – Israeli military radio, this was actually my obligatory army service. This might sound strange for non-Israelis, I know, but it was actually a pretty good experience. Since then I also had some gigs in Journalism, just like many other ex-”Galey Zahal” soldiers - I wrote and edited Economy, tech and entertainment content in Nana10 news site, and also worked as a news editor at the Ynet and mako desks. On some rare occasions I got a chance to fully express myself on mass media: Between 2006-2007 I had my own personal radio show on FM, And at about that same time i got a chance to write about music on weekly basis. So, yes, I was also a music critic. But I usually tried to keep it fair.
I teach radio and communications at the BPM sound college. I started and administrated the first year of an intense and professional radio course. Some of my students get involved in KZradio as part of their practicum.
I also have some experience with tech jobs – I did Quality Assurance for mobile applications and for Google Android distributions on various devices. This gave me a chance to dive deep into the guts of cellular streaming technologies and learn as much as possible. this knowledge comes in handy in my current projects. But finally I find myself always attracted back to audio-visuals, to creation. I love sketching, photography and motion graphics, and constantly trying to balance between all the ideas and reality.
I write even more about myself Here, on Twitter, and sometime Facebook. And just like everybody else, I take Instagrams (and just like everybody else, I hope mine are somewhat better than the average). come over, follow, say Hi.
I’ve been around for quite a while now, it’s been almost 29 years, and It may be just about the right time for me to start my own website, and display some of the stuff I do. when I eventually get to put my mind into it, i’m pretty much enjoying it. Check out the Blog section.
I’m now accepting suggestions of a clever way to finish this text.
