MUSICA PRACTICA ELETTRONICA VIVA is thrilled to host Bana Haffar on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 to give a talk and demonstration in the Lerner Center, 201 S. 34th St., Room 101.
A lifelong expatriate, Bana Haffar was born in Saudi Arabia in 1987 and spent much of her childhood in the GCC.
Through her switch from 10 years of electric bass to modular synthesizers in 2014, Bana is attempting to dismantle years of institutional ‘conditioning’ in traditional systems of music theory and performance. She is interested in exploring sonic disintegration and coalescence into new forms and synthesized experiences.
Haffar is also the co-founder of Modular on the Spot, a monthly outdoor synth happening that began on the Los Angeles river and has since spread nationally and globally.
