Artist Biographies:

"Dirar Kalash resides in Ramallah, Palestine and is one of the foremost improvisors in the Middle East. He works with a range of improvised sound/music and art practices.

Dirar Kalash's live performances combine text, sound, image, video and movement. Regularly using free and open-source software in the field of real-time audio, video and image processing, he is also a multi-instrumentalist and engages in musical composition and free improvisation. His work is based on everyday life as a phenomenon, which is then subjected to live processing, composition and decomposition in order to transcend time and matter to a ritualistic live performance.

His group participations include a live audio-video performance for the 2011 /si:n/ Festival of Video Art and Performance in Ramallah, and a video and sound installation for the 2011 Open Studio exhibition at the Khalil Sakakini Cultural Centre (Ramallah), in addition to regular musical performances in Palestine and Egypt, in the field of free and improvised music."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Dirar Kalash is an improvising musician currently based in his native Ramallah, in the state of Palestine. Opportunities to perform are non-existent. Even access to an instrument is impossible at the current time. On a rare visit to the UK early in 2020, we are fortunate that Dirar found an opportunity to record with the master sound engineer Simon Reynell, on a fine instrument in the beautiful acoustic of St Paul's Hall at the University Of Huddersfield. The plan had been to record some compositions. However, Dirar's instinct, on encountering a first class instrument after so long an enforced break, was to improvise instead. These recordings are the result."-Discus
