Safeya Alblooshi in collaboration with Joint Space
Part of More Than Human
An experimental workshop which takes participants on a journey exploring their often-overlooked sensation of the ground.
Sound artist Safeya Alblooshi collaborates with Joint Space in an experimental workshop
which takes participants on a journey exploring their often-overlooked sensation of the ground. Using movement, audio and live sound-mixing, participants will be guided through a study of their own groundedness.
Safeya Alblooshi experiments with sound in the realms of manipulated field recordings, experimental composition and participatory performance to engage with topics of conceptual narrative, environmental listening and interactivity in performance.
In addition to performing at the annual Hekayah | The Story (2021) at the NYUAD Arts Center, Safeya has also done sound for live performance and moving image, such as Re|sound V in the Sharjah Arts Foundation (2020) and has collaborated in various soundscape projects, one of which was recently presented at the UAE programming of the Smithsonian Folklife Festival (2022). She has completed her BA in Music from NYU Abu Dhabi with a minor in Interactive Media in 2021.
