Shay (1977) began to study the art of sound engineering at Jordan Valley College in the north of Israel, where he gained a degree in Practical Sound Engineering. 
The skills obtained there are clearly visible in the quality and acoustic depth of his production and sound design. 
Mise_en_scene's sound is characterized with a style owing as much to the delicate material treatments of minimalism and the lower case movement as it does to the more pensive side of noise, which is marked by a great sense of spatial control, instrumental delicacy and arrangement-related sensibility.
