DIRAR KALASH (Palestine)
Multi-instrumentalist and composer
Dirar Kalash (b. 1982, Palestine) is a sound artist whose work spans a wide range of sonic practices within a variety of compositional and improvisational contexts. His performative and compositional approaches to instruments, techniques, and aesthetics are highly political as they challenge dichotomies, hierarchies, and binary logics of new/old and west/east as tools of cultural imperialism and hegemony. The methods he uses are based upon his research into the intersections and relationships with other contexts such as language, architecture, mathematics, visual arts and further social and human sciences. His regular solo and collaborative performances include but are not limited to audio-visual performances, free jazz groups, string ensembles, solo piano, and live electronics. Dirar is also active as a visual artist, and has participated in many group exhibitions and art festivals in Palestine, Egypt and Europe.
