Mombasa mix (2020)

This piece was conceived taking as a starting point field recordings carried out in 2012 during the month of Ramadan in the city of Mombasa on the East coast of Kenya. By means of combining interviews, radio samples, environmental recordings and subtle rhythmic sequences generated using different types of synthesis techniques, the work aims to explores various aspects of contemporary African culture. This work is also a small tribute to the 1981 record ‘My life in the bush of ghost’ by Brian Eno and David Byrne which opened a door to a new world of African sounds to my generation.

Awards: 2020 Computer Space PULSAR 2020 (finalist).
