We had an unusual performance by SAMI in collaboration with Leon van Bokhorst at Modulab Fake Noise. As a source of fake noise, she explored audio snippets of drama from social media and YouTube in her work. The daily stream of soundbites that can withhold us from acting clearly on the things that matter.
She kicks off at our first event of the year – Modulab Fake Noise.
Her set starts with disturbing layers of unrecognizable drama babble. Every voice you hear is counteracted by another one. Everyone and no one is in the right at the same time.
When SAMI’s moves to calmer waters, there’s only room for scattered pieces of thought. It’s quiet, but still quite unsettling.
In the last act, she pushes the set forward into the sheltered realm of refreshing contemporary beats. We hope to hear from her again.
Eindhoven based conceptual performance artist Sami explores the emotional consequences surrounding fake news and social media, with a fascination for the intriguing world of human technology interaction.
