Four months later, on 26 June 2003, at Krowoderska 52 club in Krakow, Sebastian Meissner, Ran Slavin and Eran Sachs offered the final effects of their research in the form of a series of pieces. They carefully crafted crunchy steps, freezing wind, cracking ice and conversations into a mesmerising film for the ears. The imaginative power of the music was reinforced by Slavin's video impressions, equally apt in conjuring up a desolate though meaningful digital environment referring to Nowa Huta, the empty large defunct metal industry zone.

Works as filmmaker and audio-visual artist in Tel Aviv. His last video opus is one of the most brilliant films to come out of Israel in the last few years: INSOMNIAC CITY. Premiering with the first part at the Venice Biennial of Architecture in 2004 and continuing with part 3 at the Tel Aviv Cinematheque and international venues. Working with experimental cinema, digital and acoustic music, video art and live video/sound performances. Operating between contemporary art and new music, his visual work has been described as intense urban surrealism. It is a culmination of balanced relations between sound and video, their interconnections. His work has been shown at the Pompidou, Jeu de Paume, Transmediale, Istanbul Biennial, Cinemathèques in Israël and Paris, festivals in Berlin, Slovenia, Amsterdam, Austria, New York, China, Israel, London, Ukraine. His music and videos are released on the music-media labels Mille Plateaux, Cronica, and Sub Rosa.
Works as a composer, improviser, sound artist and curator in Jerusalem. He plays this machine regularily in the Doom-Dub-Noise outfit Lietterschpich and John Zorn's "Cobra" improvising ensemble in Israel. His works have been released on Mille Plateaux and various labels in Israel. As a sound artist his works tend to fuse the sonic with the political, as in the case of "Yannun Yannun", which portrays the harrasment of Palestinian villagers by fanatic settlers. He founded and managed the Yad-Vashem bookstore - the only Holocaust dedicated bookstore in Israel.
