XLR8R continues its partnership with SHAPE, presenting two bass guitar performances by Farida Amadou.

Beautifully filmed by Jérôme Mayer, the videos showcase two different facets of Amadou’s experimental bass guitar performances, including a 3-and-a-half minute exercise in fractured rhythms and a seven-and-a-half minute performance of warped drone.

This isn’t the first time the pair have worked together, both Mayer and Amadou are co-founders of 19 MARS Productions, a transdisciplinary label that works with sound, vision, research, events, photography, and design.

You can watch the videos in full via the players below.

Farida Amadou is a 2020 artist of the SHAPE platform for innovative music and audiovisual art, co-funded by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. This online premiere is presented by XLR8R in collaboration with Skaņu Mežs.

XLR8R is also featuring a package of exclusive music and content from a selection of SHAPE artists for the latest edition of XLR8R+, including tracks and a sample pack from Jay Glass Dubs, Poly Chain, and Rian Treanor. Check it out here: https://bit.ly/XLR8Rplus_SHAPE
