Yara Mekawei is a Cairo-based electro-acoustic music composer and sound artist. A prolific artist and scholar, Yara‘s sonic bricolages draw inspiration from the flow of urban centers and the infrastructure of cities. In her work she integrates exotic visual elements of the society into fusion progressive of her projects.   Pistachio, Mind, Map I was afraid of climbing heights I can not wear gloves It is possible to stop drink wine for five minutes and drink a cup of coffee without sugar A visitor enters the kitchen and everyone is silent for minutes ... He begins to speak asking for a glass of milk .. He holds the milk cup saying: “I used to smoke in the kitchen while I was drinking milk, so there is no law preventing me from doing so.” There is a word to define two jobs in Egypt, “prompter”, the person who prompts religious words after the death in the coffin and the person who prompts actors on the theater He closes his phone on Friday evening, when he reads, so he can not hear the surround sounds around him. Can you wear a sports shoe with a classic suit? The color of your nails changes, the size of things around you varies irregularly, your breathing rate changes and you realize you are a different person every hour and a half. http://yaramekawei.wixsite.com/yaramekawei

Pistachio, Mind, Map


I was afraid of climbing heights
I can not wear gloves
It is possible to stop drink wine for five minutes and drink a cup of coffee without
sugar
A visitor enters the kitchen and everyone is silent for minutes ... He begins to speak
asking for a glass of milk ..
He holds the milk cup saying: “I used to smoke in the kitchen while I was drinking
milk, so there is no law preventing me from doing so.”
There is a word to define two jobs in Egypt, “prompter”, the person who prompts
religious words after the death in the coffin and the person who prompts actors on
the theater
He closes his phone on Friday evening, when he reads, so he can not hear the
surround sounds around him.
Can you wear a sports shoe with a classic suit?
The color of your nails changes, the size of things around you varies irregularly,
your breathing rate changes and you realize you are a different person every hour
and a half.
