Musician Angelo Moustapha joins me at Maus Hábitos for the final two weeks of my residency. Using field recordings, objects as percussive instruments, contact microphones, loopers and reverb pedals, we will explore the possibilities of improvisation between the disciplines of sculpture and music.

Moustapha was awarded “Best drummer in Africa” at the Festival of the Best Instrumentalists of Africa and received the prize "Talent of Africa” in 2021 at the National Theater of Brussels.
