Muyassar Kurdi (b. 1989 in Chicago) is a New York City-based interdisciplinary artist. Her work encompasses sound art, extended vocal technique, performance art, movement, analog photography and film. She has toured extensively in the U.S. and throughout Europe. She currently focuses her attention to interweaving homemade electronic instruments into her vocal and dance performances, stirring a plethora of emotions from her audience members through vicious noise, ritualistic chants, and meditative movements.

Performance highlights include: The Rubin Museum of Art, Issue Project Room, Cafe OTO, Chicago Cultural Center, Center for Contemporary Art Laznia, Bond Chapel, Fridman Gallery, University Galleries, Zaratan - Arte Contemporânea, and Judson Memorial Church as well as exhibitions and film screenings (solo and group works) at VIERTE WELT, Trieze Gallery, Knockdown Center, Queens Museum, Flux Factory, and Anthology Film Archives. Kurdi’s 16mm dance film Travelling was an OFFICIAL SELECTION for the BLOW-UP International Arthouse Film Fest - Chicago in October 2018. Kurdi has collaborated with composers Yasuno Miyauchi, Ka Baird, Arrington de Dionyso, Daniel Carter, Tomomi Adachi, Diana Policarpo, Lucie Vitkova, Bradley Eros, Laraaji, Patrick Holmes, and Ben LaMar among others.


Alyssa Moxley (USA/IRL) is a composer and artist working with narratives of identity, place, and embodied experience through sound. Much of her practice involves the use of field recordings to transform environments, via live performances, compositions and installations.
