As an artist, he creates installations, flms, performances and radio pieces which explore sonic materiality and listening processes in relation to affect, coloniality and power. As a researcher, he recently completed a PhD on “sonic pluralism, embodiment and ecological voices in Morocco”, engaging with aural histories and practices through artistic collaboration. Recent projects include “The Gramophone Effect”, a sound piece created with Robert Millis and the Indian collective “Traveling Archive”, commissioned by Documenta14 (2017, Kassel and Athens); “Black Anthenna”, a performance with Nathalie Mba Bikoro created for the Tuned Cities festival in 2018; and “Salam Godzilla”, a flm essay shot in Agadir on the 1960 earthquake, premiered at Marseille International Film festival (FID) in 2019, and presented later in the exhibiton “Love and Ethnology - The Colonial Dialectic of Sensitivity” at the Berlin House of World Cultures (HKW). www.earpolitics.net
