Back in September 2018 I have been invited to play a show at the Mapping Possibilities VI festival in Cairo. This show took place at the Cinema Zawya and it was an anniversary show for Pro Helvetia Cairo. The idea of the Mapping Possibilities festivals is to play a live show supported by strong visuals. My Visual Artist was Mostafa El Baroody. So arm yourself with good headphones and while you are listening to this album just imagine crazy visuals. Some of the original works by Mostafa can be seen on my webpage.
My special thanks go to Rami Abadir, Slam Shabana, Peter Fares (Pro Helvetia Cairo), Weldroid, Mostafa El Baroody, Arne Luttropp, Joel Gilardini, Helge Kaul, Niculin Barandun, Ismael, Aly Nabil, Adriano Orrù and Sara Hochuli.
45min auf 6:30 – Ein Zusammenschnitt des AN MOKU Konzerts in Cairo mit dem Visual Artisten Mostafa El Baroody. Danke :-)
My idea behind the EndTitles.Kitchen.Lab concert was to place the artist in my café behind the bar, right there where I used to stand with my team and to let him play his set. Well, this worked out pretty well. Thank you Joel and Chihei for this outstanding set yesterday and huge thanks to all the helpers and the audience.
See you next time :-)
Live in Cairo

What do we do? Mapping Possibilities is an ongoing collective project of audio/visual performances. The collective gives DIY/self-taught/experimental artists a chance to present their work, expanding its public exposure. To keep a dynamic spirit we try to present new line-ups in each performance. How do we do it? Each performance is the product of collaboration between audio artists and visual artists, who work together to explore different possibilities on the conceptual and technical levels. The performance relies on cutting edge production technologies and offers new ways of digital production. What to expect in Mapping Possibilities? In this collective, visual artists focus on generative and interactive real-time visual experimentation using coding, open source programming platforms, and alongside more traditional media such as video and 3D animation. While sound artists take a more sound-oriented approach, featuring non-dance electronic music (i.e. abstract, noise, drone, ambient, glitch, IDM, experimental, . . . etc.). Mapping Possibilities VI is presented in collaboration with Pro Helvetia Cairo, the liaison office of the Swiss Arts Council. Swiss artists Dominik Grenzler & Niculin Barandun are arriving to Cairo, especially for that night, to take part in the second event in Pro Helvetia Cairo’s Jubilee music program, commemorating 30 years of the office’s operations in the Arab world. The program started last month with a concert for Swiss duo OY. First performance: Ismael. [Audio] + Niculin Barandun [Visuals] Second performance: AN MOKU [Audio] + Mostafa El Baroody [Visuals]
