hello internet, welcome ~(˘▾˘~)
it's nice to e-meet you.
this digital space is home to a web of ideas, feelings, musings, experimentations and processes that stem from the brain of a sonic creature + multidisciplinary artist.
my name is ali, i’m a lebanese-canadian artist from tio'tia:ke/ mooniyang (montreal). while my practice is primarily sound-based, i also work in painting, video and textiles. it’s all connected ~ and with a focus on memory, blurring the lines between abstraction and figuration (reality & imagination), and material exploration/instrumental experimentation.
i’m currently embarking on a new musical journey, after my previous stint as the lead singer/songwriter of the day dreamers (2013-2022).
i’ve never been one to occupy much space on the internet, but i do believe there are some intentional methods of sparking community and generating fruitful collaboration, and for this, i’ve landed here on substack.
i would love for you to join me on this path of process archiving. i don’t want to define this space as something it might be, but rather let it unfold naturally. one thing i will say, is i believe it will be chaotic & scatterbrain-y ~ in all the best ways.
if you enjoy what you are experiencing, please consider supporting my endeavours with a paid subscription; i will spam your inboxes with some extra-special, juicy, exclusive stuff (tasteful spam, of course).
