Sonic Interventions
Open City Documentary Festival, 24-30 April 2024

I worked with Mo’min Swaitat, founder of the Palestinian Sound Archive and the Majazz Project, to commission a series of interventions by Swaitat that  played in Festival venues before and after festival screenings, with the intention of integrating Palestinian voices and culture across this edition of the festival.

The Palestinian Sound Archive is an archive of rare tapes and vinyl from Palestine and beyond, spanning field recordings of weddings to revolutionary tracks and synth-heavy 80s funk. The Majazz Project is a research project borne out of the archive, focused around sampling, remixing and reissuing vintage Palestinian and Arabic cassettes.
