Jessika Khazrik’s sonic landscapes intimately investigate the ecological and techno-political premises of the economies we inhabit or forget. The interdisciplinary artist, writer, technologist, composer and DJ’s practice ranges from composition to machine learning, performance, teaching, visual art, ecotoxicology and the history of science and music. Often born out of vocoded collaborations with multi-modal neural networks skewed with incomputable Arabic rhythms, she festively uses spaces of congregation to search for locally-rooted universalisms that could be a collective response to contemporary dystopias.
Khazrik is a current a SHAPE PLATFORM artist fellow, principle investigator at the Society of False Witnesses and composes the score of the GEOCINEMA film and research project. She has performed at Terraforma, CTM Festival, Les Urbaines, and HKW, among others, and her multi-channel sound installations and performances have been commissioned by Rewire Festival, Kunsthalle Wien, LACE, LUMA Foundation, MoMAW, and more.
