Jerusalem In My Heart is a live A/V project featuring musician Radwan Ghazi Moumneh and filmmaker Charles-André Coderre. Their influences are diverse, stretching across post-punk, psychedelia, and folk recordings from Beirut and Syria. Sonically, Jerusalem In My Heart fold acoustic buzuk and zurna instrumentation into layers of distortion, reverb and saturated synth work, creating gorgeous atmospheres and poignant melodies along the way.
Dark ambient project Sarana utilise both electronic and acoustic elements to explore self-healing strategies through noise. The group, based in Samarinda, Indonesia, are known for fashioning jarring textural experiments.
Sarana appear as part of Nusasonic, an initiative of Goethe-Institut Southeast Asia that is collaboratively curated by Yes No Wave (Yogyakarta), WSK Festival of the Recently Possible (Manila), Playfreely/Black Kaji (Singapore), and CTM Festival (Berlin). Jerusalem in my Heart are supported by the Embassy of Canada.
