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. 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. He calls the overall ongoing project remix ←→ culture : morocco. What ofd does with the audio-visual material he has captured / will capture will vary. He is currently working on Installation #1, an interactive piece which will be featured at Priceless this summer. You can read the artist statement 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. In the meantime, here are a few photos of the protagonists of this adventure:
