One of the most enjoyable and innovative cultural events of the summer so far has to be the SonicVision experience currently on at the planetarium of Eretz Israel Museum in Tel Aviv.

SonicVision at Eretz Israel Museum

Based on a show that has garnered rave reviews in the U.S., this is the Israeli version of a massive sensory experience - an eclectic mix of pop, dub, rock, dance and trance music (everything from the Chemical Brothers and Portishead to to R.E.M. and Berry Sakharov) fills the darkened auditorium, while your chair bumps, jumps and spins in time to an immersive 360-degree digital show of faces, ribbons of light, spirals and dancing robots.

Sounds good? It's even better in reality. The only downside is that it lasts just 40 minutes, and you immediately want to sit through it again.

So if you're looking for something a little different from the usual summer fare of beaches, parks and museums, and good music and amazing visual displays are your thing (or if you've ever been hypnotized by the Windows Media Player visualizations), then you do not want to miss this.

When:
Friday nights, at 21:30, 22:30, 23:30

Price:
48 NIS per person

Where:
Eretz Israel Museum planetarium
2 Levanon Street, Ramat Aviv
