Tarek Atoui is an artist and electroacoustic composer, working within the realm of sound performance and composition. He engineers complex and inventive instruments as well as arranges and curates interventions, concerts, performances, and workshops. His work often revolves around large-scale, collaborative performances that develop from extensive research into music history and instrumentation, while exploring new methods of production. At the core of his work is an ongoing reflection on the instrument and the act of performance as a complex, open, and dynamic process. The performances he orchestrates are for the most part improvised, but are always grounded in meticulous research into sound archives and collections.

Education and social connection are integral aspects of Atoui's practice.Read More
