Haroon Mirza – Studio Visit | TateShots

Haroon Mirza plays cardboard records, samples African drummers, and pays hommage to house music in his art

Haroon Mirza creates sculptural soundscapes by drawing on an eclectic range of sources, from music to the speaking voice. Work can start with an object, a sound, an idea, or simply a point of interest says Mirza, who sees his role as that of a composer, bringing the disparate elements together as an installation that mixes sound, moving parts, light effects and video.

Mirza’s sound installation ‘Cross Section of a Revolution’ 2011 is on show at The Project Space, Tate Modern until 24 June 2013
