Venue: Sharjah, United Arab Emirates

Fari Bradley and Chris Weaver will begin their residency this month with Maraya Art Centre, to work on a project which focuses attention on three of Sharjah’s most architecturally and geographically  distinct locations: Port Khalid, Sharjah International Airport and the Mleiha Archaeological Centre. This commission examines each location's unique sonic qualities; the mountainous desert landscape, the dome and runway of the airport, the machinery and seafaring life of the port. Sound artists Bradley and Weaver compose and perform unique experimental music, using field recordings collected over the next month. The three live surround sound, immersive performances will be presented in March 2017.
