UNCOLLECTABLE: A Sound Art Popup Experience
Published on May 9th, 2013 | by Caesar (ENGAGE)
+ Aziz is a Kuwaiti musician living in New York and has been evolving “UNCOLLECTABLE: A Pop-Up Sound Art Experience”. He was led to us by Ali Sleeq and we found his project very interesting and would like to bring awareness about the event which scheduled to take place in New York.
What he believes:
By looking at trends outside the entertainment industry, musicians can breathe new life into the Middle East’s passive music and arts industry. By collaborating with sound artists or chefs (for example) we can introduce innovation and ideation into the music industry.
So what is “UNCOLLECTABLE: A Sound Art Popup Experience” ?
Situated at the intersection of conceptual art and music, UNCOLLECTABLE is a two-night performance that will combine elements of an art gallery reception and a musical experience. By highlighting the rising importance of sound art, UNCOLLECTABLE is a show that seeks to expand the vocabulary of songwriting. This multicultural performance will be kicking off a month-long art exhibit hosted at Soho’s Hotel Particulier and is being co-curated by Murtaza Vali, an independent Art Critic, Historian and Curator.
Help him raise $14,000. Pledge now to bring this idea to life. Your donation will bring the performance to life; the art exhibit and eMagazine are already taken care of.
By bringing sound art and music together, we can deepen the conversation about the future of indie music, particularly in the Middle East.
The principles driving UNCOLLECTABLE are supported by a robust PR program and content strategy that will ensure this work has impact. For example, arrangements are being made to convey findings to Mideast Tunes and Knooz Room. Moreover, these principles are brought to light in an eMagazine already published on ArteEast.
