In this fourth edition, Lorem Ipsum continues to weave networks with local sources; city agents and/or collectives that are independently strengthening the city’s soundscape outside the agenda set by the city’s already-established festival and programming policy. Thus, we have issued a carte blanche invitation to the Jokkoo Collective for the closure of Lorem Ipsum. The guests at the double programme being put together by the Jokkoo collective will be Sukitoa o Namau and Aho Ssan.

Sukitoa o Namau is a Moroccan artist and experimental sound investigator. Her live performances are based on a collection of field recordings, textures, processed sounds and rhythms, inspired by the friction of audio snapshots and the way they can assemble, resonate, break, mute, confront and resist each other. The idea of thresholds is at the heart of her work, as is the way a group of fragments can become sonic material, open spaces (and meanings) and operate at different levels of perception.

Aho Ssan is the stage name of Niamké Désiré, a resident of Paris. After studying graphic arts and cinema, he started composing electronic music and creating his own digital instruments. He launched his debut LP, Simulacrum, through Subtext Recordings at the beginning of 2020. Based on a concept by Jean Baudrillard, it compares the appearance of an inclusive, equal society with his own experience of growing up black in France.

Curated by the Jokkoo collective.

Jokkoo is a Barcelona-based musical artistic collective that was created three and a half years ago. It was born out of the intention and need to investigate and disseminate the most contemporary electronic sound and the avant-garde scene of the African continent and its diaspora. The absence of these trends in the European circuit’s local events and clubs led them to create connections and spaces where they put the spotlight on non-hegemonic musical aesthetics. It currently has six members and consists of Maguette Dieng (Mbodj), Baba Sy, Oscar (Opoku), Nico (Mookie), Ismäel (B4mba) and its most recent addition, Ikram Bouloum. Six different personalities with the shared objective of establishing Afro-electronic hybrid music and diaspora narratives in the global community.

The essence of the fragment and the module resonates deeply in my work.
