Sing it out loud!

BY CHAHIRA NOUIRA
@ VOL 7 ON MAY 09, 2017

When singing to win a TV show or to be the lead singer in the trendiest band in town has become the norm, we seem to have forgotten that singing is more than just that. Sharing the gift of singing across genres, countries and cultures goes beyond just a performance on stage. it´s about connecting, sharing and learning.

Chahira Nouira shares the story of how songs and singing has led her through life and helped her find a place whereever she goes.

Emily! Don't Do That!

BY EMILY PEASGOOD
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

"I use sound to express things that cause me frustration and joy. I find it cathartic and I find it so much fun. It makes frustrating things tolerable and fun things magical. For me, sound captures experience, truth, and memory in a way that no other sense can."

Despite the seemingly obstructive title, Emily Peasgood shows she is a risk-taking creative who throws caution to the wind (sometimes literally), experimenting with sound and social encounters, her work is original, thought-provoking and uplifting.

My Obsession

BY TONJE HALVORSEN
@ VOL 65 ON MAR 27, 2019

We have all heard stories about the suffering artist. The question Tonje Halvorsen asked herself was: who am I as an artist, and does art require pain? 1 collection. 21 garments, 500,000 safety pins, 1,500,000 beads and 7,000 hours later. What was her answer? Obsession. Tonje's artistry is characterised by an obsession, which in the past two years has been prioritised over her health, relationships and job. An obsession that has cost me some of my most valuable possession: time.
