Un-drum Series by Tarek Atoui //

Tarek Atoui’s Un-drum performances are a series of complex interactions between music composition, movement, performance, and computer and electronic engineering. Un-drum 1: Strategies of Surviving Noise, an intense and physical electronic sound performance produced in 2009, draws upon the three days of arrest and torture the artist experienced during the July 2006 war on Lebanon. Un-drum 2: The Chinese Connection considers how traditional and modern art forms were radically affected and altered by the ideology of the Cultural Revolution. For Un-drum 3: Semantic Scanning Electron Microscope, Atoui developed an audio library of tens of thousands of microsamples to explore semantics through a system analogous to a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Like the SEM, which magnifies things on a fine scale, the tools of Un-drum 3 allow live exploration of long audio tracks on a very small scale. Systems of infrared modules respond to Atoui’s movements to select microsamples according to mathematical serial algorithms that create elaborate rhythmical structures of hundreds of microsamples played simultaneously.
