Egyptian singer, actor, musician and writer Abdullah Miniawy’s sound work is a vertiginous, spellbinding sonic journey though Giza. In what the artist describes as an experimental departure from his previous work, listeners are invited to immerse themselves in 77k Vertical Hectares Deep Where an Archaeological Pillar Was Buried in Giza. The heavily synthesized electronic rhythms that populate this theoretic space beneath the sands are open to possibilities.
77k Vertical Hectares Deep Where an Archaeological Pillar Was Buried in Giza is presented in collaboration with Haus der Kunst, Munich, alongside its program of Tune, a monthly series of short sound residencies, and of Echoes, a new live exhibition program with 10 days of performances, conversations and screenings.
Abdullah Miniawy will feature within both programmes on March 3rd and March 4th, with a multifaceted presentation of his work including I Am in the Sea Now, a film work based on a poem by Miniawy and developed with Munich-based media artist Justin Urbach, and performances with Peter Corser and with Carl Gari.
