Un-drum 1: strategies of surviving noise

This work is an intense and physical electronic sound performance. It draws upon the 3 days of arrest and torture I experienced during the July 2006 war on Lebanon, during which I permanently lost partial hearing in my left ear after receiving a beating to the head.

‘Un-drum / strategies of surviving noise’ draws parallels between attempts to break states of physical and psychological detention and siege and the collapsing of musical performance boundries, laptop art and electronic music.


Produced by the Sharjah Biennial 9 – 2009
