"Excerpts from the Un-drum series

a Sound performance 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. They are intense physical sound performances that Tarek Atoui started to develop in 2009 and that he has shown this month at the New Museum, as part of his Museum as Hub residency.

Tarek Atoui was born in Lebanon in 1980 and moved to Paris in 1998 where he studied contemporary and electronic music at the French National Conservatory of Reims. He was co-artistic director of the STEIM Studios in Amsterdam in 2008, and released his first solo album in the Mort Aux Vaches series for the label Staalplaat (Amsterdam/Berlin). Atoui is an electro-acoustic musician who initiates and curates multidisciplinary interventions, events, concerts, and workshops.

Many thanks to all who helped this event happen on such short notice. was an amazing evening.
