C-drik Fermont VS Osman Arabi
“A night of experimental sounds from Belgium encountering experimental sounds of Lebanon.”
C-drík Fermont is a multifaced artist, academically trained musician. He is a former student of electroacoustic composer Annette Vande Gorne (Conservatory of Mons, Belgium) C-drík is also a sound designer and composer, mostly into various electronic and experimental genres such as electro-acoustic, noise, breakcore, industrial, electro, digital punk and free jazz.
Connected to visual arts, Cdrík composes soundtracks for theater, exhibitions, sound installations, fashion shows and short movies.
In 2006 he composed a musical score for Sergei Eisenstein’s mute film The strike in Riga, Latvia. The same year he won a prize for the best soundtrack at the festival of experimental short film “Côté court” in Montreuil (France). The movie was made by Gisèle Pape and edited on dvd by Ad Noiseam. Between 2004 until 2007 he performed in many Asian, Middle-Eastern and African countries to meet local artists, collect local experimental music to produce a non-western compilation and start to write a book about the non-western artists and scenes. Cedrik also runs the mastering studio/record labels Syrphe (above all dedicated to electronic and experimental from Africa and Asia) and Textolux.Osman Arabi is a Lebanese musician, composer and sound designer well known as the driving force behind the raw, acid and harsh electronics onslaught outfit 20.SV as well as working with the secret nihilist Dutch collective STALAGGH.
The comprehensively cerebral impact of Osman Arabi is one that has been experienced by far through many representative projects such as 20.SV, Seeker, Kafan, Veinen, Shamanic Death Trance, The Ritual Inclusion of Code among others; dealing with a broad range of genres such as dark ambient, industrial, tribal, psychedelic, electro-acoustic, power electronics and noise. His music reveals deep ritualistic and enigmatic atmospheres in which everything folds as a hypnotizing journey beyond the earthly realms establishing him as one of the most unique figures in the international noise and industrial scene.
Osman keeps treading new paths creating textures and sonic narratives. His sounds open new channels of perception via subtle and subliminal passages representing, in a deep concept, musical explorations shrouded in ethnic ritual atmospheres and post apocalyptic scenarios.
