Fatima Al Qadiri: Genre-Specific Xperience Release Party and Screening
October 21 2011
New Silent presents the launch of Fatima Al Qadiri’s new EP Genre-Specific Xperience. For this event Al Qadiri, a New York-based artist and musician, showcases five pieces of music that reinterpret five sub-genres of dance music: juke, hip hop, dubstep, electro-tropicalia, and ’90s Gregorian trance. Al Qadiri collaborated with six artists to create original music videos—these are Kamau Patton, Tabor Robak, Thunder Horse, Sophia Al-Maria, Ryan Trecartin and Rhett LaRue. On the evening of October 21, the videos will be premiered, and Al Qadiri will discuss the process and ideas around GSX with Patton.
