While visiting his family in Morocco this spring, ofd traveled to 3 remote parts of Morocco to learn from their traditional musicians, record their music, and photograph the experience. Â Although it wasn’t his initial intention, ofd now plans on doing this every time he returns to Morocco – each time exploring different parts of Morocco’s rich and diverse musical traditions. Â He calls the overall ongoing project remix â†â†’ culture : morocco. Â What ofd does with the audio-visual material he has captured / will capture will vary. Â He is currently working on Installation #1, an interactive piece which will be featured at Priceless this summer. Â You can read the artist statementÂ here.
For those of you who won’t be able to attend Priceless this summer, ofd is also working on audio-visual remixes he will post online in the near future. Â In the meantime, here are a few photos of the protagonists of this adventure:
