36: Imani Aboye

As an African electronic sound artist, my work is deeply influenced by my cultural heritage and my love of sound and technology. I use a range of electronic techniques and sound manipulation to create pieces that are both sonically rich and conceptually engaging, drawing inspiration from the traditional rhythms and sounds of Africa.

My work is particularly inspired by the idea of African sonic motifs from around the continent. I incorporate this concept into my work by creating sonically pleasing pieces and invite the listener to contemplate the rhythms and patterns within the music.

In my practice, I often use a combination of traditional instruments, such as drums and percussion and new media techniques such as digital sound manipulation, programming, and generative algorithms. I am fascinated by the intersection of technology and tradition, and I often use my art to comment on how these two worlds intersect.
