This project is an ongoing investigation that will be developed within two music projects created in the past: Circulate and Detroit Beirut. It takes an introspective look into the history of recorded Arabic music with respect to displaced cultural identities. The project will be a selection of original compositions that infuse traditional Arabic music with new collaborative forms of conceptual and experimental sound elements, with accompanying experimental music videos. The title “clips” connotes a holding device or extraction - film footage, ammunition, amongst others, applied musically to excerpts of everyday life
