|Zahra Mani (UK / PK)
lives and works in Austria. She is a composer and multi-instrumentalist who creates pulsing, shifting soundscapes derived from her burgeoning archive of instrumental and found sound that she has been recording and developing for years. Her work focuses on spaces between.
Crossing boundaries, challenging aesthetic and cultural preconceptions in an ongoing flux of sound, word and motion, Zahra Mani creates shifting, pulsing, explosive, whispering, murmuring, screaming, cajoling and caressing sonic worlds.
She harvests sounds from the field and transforms fragments of natural and mechanical audio material into dynamic acoustic monuments where voices, instruments, machines, sea, wind and landscapes sound instrumental and her electric bass guitar is transformed into raindrops, engines and throbbing monsoon winds.
Zahra Mani performs live and creates installations and radio art.
