CAIRO – 29 December 2017: The fourth edition of Mapping Possibilities, an ongoing audio-visual collective of experimental performances will be held at Zawya Cinema on January 4, 2018.
The purpose of the collective is to give a platform for independent experimental artists of all kinds to express themselves and gain further exposure. Each performance focuses on a fresh new lineup of artists. Audio artists team up with visual artists to work together and explore new avenues of digital production, real-time visual interaction that utilizes coding and open-source programming, alongside video and 3D animation. Genres of music include abstract, drone, noise, glitch, ambient, etc.
For the first performance, musician Nur, aka Nour Emam Refai will team-up with visual artist Nurah Farahat, with the second set to feature the audio work of Zuli and visuals by سبعة ٦٢.
The project is independently funded, allowing a space for artists to express themselves free of the constraints of traditional Egyptian art institutions.
