The Complex Songs
Saturday, Nov 9 / 3 pm – 3.30 pm
Sara Hamdy & Choir
The performance project The Complex Songs by visual and sound artist Sara Hamdy is based on recordings of birdsongs the artist collected in Halle, Leipzig, Cairo and Alexandria, and transformed into scores for vocal interpretation. For the Radiolab edition of the performance a temporary choir of local singers and voice performers developed its own interpretation of the scores.
Sara Hamdy is a visual and sound artist based in Cairo. Currently, Hamdy is a scholar of the Radio Art Residency, an international artist-in-residence program for artistic practice in the radio, hosted by Radio CORAX in Halle/Saale in cooperation with the Goethe-Institut.
