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]
… equimpent. love it. going to work with it again by preparing tracks for an upcoming show…
out now! EndTitles proudly presents the new release by AROVANE: salomé. 👌🏻enjoy🔊
Back in 2015 I was asked by the founder of EndTitles @dominikgrenzler to compose a soundtrack for a silent film. The festival took place in Zurich. I had to choose from a couple of silent films and I liked Salomé – a film adaption of the Oscar Wilde play of the same name (1923), directed by Charles Bryant. The play itself is a loose retelling of the biblical story of King Herod and his execution of John the baptist (here, as in Wilde’s play, called Jokaanan) at the request of Herod’s stepdaughter, Salomé, whom he lusts after.” – AROVANE.
The album “Salomé” will be released next week, 7th of March🙌🏻
… a brilliant soundtrack by AROVANE. stay tuned for more information🔊
Hèsperos is a new solo release from Sardinian double bassist Adriano Orrù. The six pieces collected here are diverse in sound but unified at the conceptual level. What Orrù has done is form each one around the idea of a winnowing down to fundamentals, quite literally: All six are constructed around the fundamental tone or tones of one of more open strings.
Hèsperos is lyrical at the same time that it is experimental. The idea of focusing each piece on an open string is a natural one for the bass, and here it is developed in ways that elicit a kind of singing—the results are not at all dry or abstract, as one might expect from an experiment rooted in such an a priori concept. This is a variety of idea art that doesn’t sacrifice the art for the idea.
