Selwa Abd, originally from Morocco, is a New York based artist and musician. She holds a BFA in Communication Design from Parsons The New School for Design and is founder of the music platform: Bizaarbazaar. Under the guise Bergsonist (derived from Deleuze' s Bergsonism), she uses multiple mediums to investigate social resonance through divergent conceptual aesthetics (minimalism, techno, music concrete to name a few). Her practice utilizes her trained design sensibility to filter the objects of intuitive exploration, guided by an impulse to detach subjective meaning from found sonic fragments. Notions of identity, memory, social politics and the ambiguous long-term reliability/stability of our digital networks drive this process. She has released several eps on labels such as Borft, Styles Upon Styles, Always Human and Where To Now as. As well as self released Eps on her bandcamp. “Heat” is her debut release for Optimo Music and is a stunningly original EP, the lead track being a slo-mo low slung techno treat featuring Bergsonist’s vocals. It will be followed up with a full album release in the first half of 2019.
