About the event

As a part of May amnesia never kiss us on the mouth, Basel  Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme invited Hiro Kone, and Muqata'a to create  new performances in response to the exhibition. For this evening  presentation, the artists come together for a collaborative evening of  music and multimedia performance within the installation in the Kravis  Studio.

Hiro Kone is the project of New York–based musician  and producer Nicky Mao. She uses a combination of hardware, synths, and  modular to cultivate her sound—a visceral meditation on rhythm, noise,  and melody that characterizes her releases on leading experimental  labels including DAIS Records and BANK Records. Responding to the  precariousness of humanity, Kone’s cascades of twisted field recordings  find a partner in the effervescent current of synthesis and, in the  process, forge new sonic terrains.

Muqata’a is an electronic musician based in  Ramallah, Palestine. Produced using sampled material, field recordings,  and electronic devices, the results range between harsh beats, abstract  tones, and glitch. He cofounded the Ramallah Underground Collective  (2002–09), and is part of the sound and image performance group  Tashweesh alongside artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme.
