This is You Glitching My Death
As an artist, composer, and musician, Singaporean Bani Haykal’s research interests culminate in various forms including installation, poetry, and performance that revolve around modes of interfacing and interaction in feedback/feedforward mechanisms. He is fascinated with the intersection of data politics, music and speculative fiction. He works with a broad range of instruments, exploring the narratives, structured improvisation and spoken words. For this volume, Haykal played with the idea of futurity from the perspective of unrealized dreams. Written and recited mostly in Malay, his voice roams from the freeform poetic to the wrathful protest speech, to seductive reflections of the early Malay pop singers wrapped in unorthodox musical composition. The works in This is You Glitching My Death examine anxieties in a situation to disrupt the mundanities into poetic territory that confronts time on its own terms.
