Work for Live Art Denmark
2011: Performance for Mary Paterson’s workshop.
Kabir created a sound performance in the context of our first seminar on performative writing with Mary Paterson. His work, a soundpiece featuring live processing of sounds picked up from the building of Warehouse 9 where the seminar took place, was reviewed directly during the process by Mary and participants of her workshop.
