Artist: BHAROOCHA, HISHAM
Title: Artist Music Journal Volume 1: Edition 03
Format: Book
Label: Soundscreen Design
Country: USA
Price: $14.00
From Hisham: This AMJ is a compilation made up of mostly collage work I have done over the years, as well as some of my installation drawings. This if the first book of my own so I am excited about it and hope you are as well. It was a simple process to create this book but I am glad to have it out in the world. It describes an era of development for me in my work. I hope to surpass this work by keeping on the creative path but its nice to have something to look back on. Art is for sharing not keeping to yourself. The more people your work can speak to the more powerful it becomes. Let it fall out of your hands and into the minds of others. You cant own it, you can only create it. "Hisham Akira Bharoocha is an artist currently based in Brooklyn, New York. He concentrates on creating music, visual art, and photography. Bharoocha has had solo exhibitions of his work at DAmelio Terras gallery in New York, as well as Vleeshal, a state run space in The Netherlands. He has been in numerous group exhibitions at galleries such as Deitch Projects, John Connelly Presents, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. His work has been published in Art Forum, V, i-D, Flaunt, Tokion, Dossier to name a few. Hisham is well known in the underground music scene for being a founding member of the bands Lightning Bolt and Black Dice. After leaving Black Dice, he created Soft Circle, a solo project that allowed him a more personal exploration of his own musical interests. His first solo album, Full Bloom was released in January 2007 on Eastern Developments. He has a split 12 inch release with High Places that came out in July 2009 on PPM. Soft Circle is now a duo consisting of Bharoocha and Ben Vida (Bird Show/Singer) and they are working on a new album which will come out in the Spring of 2010. Hisham has collaborated with artists such as Doug Aitken on a sound piece that was performed at MoMA during his Sleep Walkers installation, as well as musicians such as the experimental rock group Boredoms in which he helped organize the legendary 77 BOADRUM (which happened on 7/07/07 where 77 drummers performed with the band in Dumbo Brooklyn), 88 BOADRUM (which happened on 08/08/08 where 88 drummers performed with Boredoms in LA, 88 drummers playing with Gang Gang Dance in NYC at the same time) and 9 BOADRUM performances (which happened on 9/09/09 where 9 drummers performed with the band as well as other dates including playing the ATP Festival curated by Flaming Lips)." - Soundscreen Design.
