SPECIAL EVENT AT 9PM—A STONE BENEFIT!
Tarek Atoui & Jad Atoui—Conjured Geographies
Produced for the Marrakech Biennial 6 in February 2016, Conjured Geographies uses sounds collected by Tarek and Jad Atoui on previous projects, and combines them in heterophonic, Tarab inducing associations.
In classical Arabic music, heterophony plays a fundamental role in creating the enchantment and mellow trance known as Tarab. The 5 or 6 musicians of the classical orchestra (Takht) develop the capacity of playing the same tune, while independently ornamenting the original melody. This takes place in relation to complex rhythmic grids inside which the musicians follow independent trajectories. By offering a free navigation between instruments, these multiple voices allow the listener to experience Tarab.

5/16 Monday (MJC)
9 pm
Tarek Atoui & Jad Atoui—Conjured Geographies
Tarek Atoui (electronics) Jad Atoui (electronics)
A rare presntation of cutting edge electronics by these masters of the bizarre! NOTE LATER START TIME—NINE PM!! ALL PROCEEDS GO TO THE STONE TO HELP US STAY AFLOAT.
