Tarek Atoui (LB/F)

Tarek Atoui was born in Lebanon in 1980. He moved to Paris in 1988, started composing music on his computer and studied at the French National Conservatoire. He describes himself as an electro-acoustic musician, although he works primarily digitally, creating a uniquely abstract sound world with his experimental approach. Using patches and composed electronic music with his laptop (MAX/MSP) he makes soundscapes, often with beats, subject to breaks and asymmetries. He builds new software for each project that he works on. Together with Uriel Barthelemi he is the founder of the Asa Djinnia Collective.
