Sound Without Image 
صوت بدون صورة

Sound Without Image صوت بدون صورة is a Live Show I am hosting on Radio Alhara, every first Tuesday of the month at 6pm Palestine time.

I initially sought to use the space of Sound Without Image to think through the recent experience of socially distant collective listening and our changing perspectives on sound (without images) — as well as to simply stay in ‘touch’ with friends and colleagues in the time of continuous lockdowns.

The first episode aired on October 6, in the form of a trip down memory lane that included a selection of tracks exclusively by musicians I have seen perform live, once upon a time B.C. (before covid). The second episode aired on November 3, and was dedicated to the work of Iraqi ‘monologuist’ Aziz Ali.
