Aural Nusa—Mix by Fahmi Mursyid

See the tracklist on our Soundcloud page

Fahmi Mursyid is a contemporary musician, composer, sound designer, and producer based in Bandung, Indonesia. He began releasing recordings under various monikers and on different labels starting in 2011 and has since amassed a massive collection of recordings and albums, continuing a growing streak of prolific output. Fahmi uses a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments in a variety of combinations to create glitchy, shimmering, swirling electronic sounds of an enormous range. For his exclusive mix for EastEast, Fahmi mixes his own compositions with a diverse selection of field recordings from Music of Indonesia, a series on the Smithsonian Folkways label recorded by the ethnomusicologist Philip Yampolsky throughout the 1990s. These seemingly incongruous combinations stealthily illustrate his knack for reinterpretation and hybridisation and help to break down the rigid, perceived boundaries between the “traditional” and the “experimental.”
