Outlet x Rozz-Tox Presents: Jerusalem In My Heart + Ben Shemie (Suuns)
Jerusalem in my Heart is returning with Daqa’iq Tudaiq, the third full length album from the Montréal/ Beirut contemporary Arabic audio visual duo. Featuring voice, electronics, buzuk and other instrumentation from composer/ producer Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Matana Roberts, Suuns, BIG|BRAVE) and complemented by the 16mm analog film work of Charles André Coderre in live performance, JIMH continues to expand the horizons of its profound conceptual and aesthetic engagement with Arabic/ Middle Eastern traditions. Daqa’iq Tudaiqtranslates as “minutes that bother/ oppress/ harass” which presumably needs no further explanation.
Daqa’iq Tudaiq is a masterful, mesmerizing artistic statement and confirms Jerusalem In My Heart as one of the most engaged and forward looking groups at work in avant garde Middle Eastern music today.
Ben Shemie is always exploratory and meticulous– his solo pursuits involve
performance based experimental sound practices that integrate freeform
excursions and more structured compositional music — veering into
classical, radio art, new technologies and all manner of other avant-garde
Best known as singer and guitarist for art-rock-tronica act Suuns, Shemie
also boasts a background in modern classical composition and
experimental performance. A fascination for music has expanded his sound
to fuse it with the conventions of many genres. Ever inquisitive, he seeks
out novel conceptual projects and challenging delivery systems for his
restless musical soul.
