Safa

Mhamad Safa is a musician, architect and researcher, based between London and Beirut. Safa’s work focuses on multi-scalar spatial conditions and their sonic make-ups. He explores their intersections with aural legacies of traditional and subcultural practices as well as environments of conflict and violence. He conveys these auditory inquiries by assembling sound design, micro-sampling, algorithmic sound technology, psychoacoustics, field recordings, and their graphic interpretations. Culminating with heavily percussive and rhythmically odd interventions, these sonic irregularities are often repurposed as speculative experimentations on the futures of dance culture. In addition to his research in sound, film scoring and installations, he has released music both solo and collectively. Most recently, his album Ibtihalat was released on UIQ with compositions that contemplate sonorous futures of traditional musical practices from the Arabian Peninsula and North Africa.
