Performance Young FFT Music & Sound

Music shapes biographies. It connects with personal experience, moulds identity and affiliation and expresses who we are. Young people, refugees, live in a tension-filled space between the cultures of their origin and their arrival. In sounds, they become performers and transform narrative miniatures from their lives into electronic music. They describe moments from their memories that are intertwined with music, producing a collage of vastly different situations of listening and playing music. sounds is storytelling, electro concert, and a walk-in spatial installation.
