kalimatkalimat:

Drawing from a wide range of source material, this recorded performance combines a palette of edits of classic Arabic pop, found sounds from radio, television, conversation, and the streets of Cairo, Doha, and Toronto, within a framework of original electronic composition that responds and envelops these sounds.

The intended listening experience evokes radio listening while in transit, moving from room to room in a venue for dance music, or musical daydreaming while watching the news—moving from space to space into another in which the sounds themselves are the main elements.

Composed by Karim Sultan for Kalimat Magazine

This audio piece was developed for the V&A Friday Late: Record, Reframe, Resist on 30 Nov, 2012.
