Discwoman Amplify Each Other:
DJ Haram at DHC/ART
This event is presented in conjunction with DHC/ART’s exhibition Points de départ, Points qui lient by Bharti Kher and in collaboration with Discwoman. DJ Haram will perform a live composition that draws from a range of electronic music forms and artworks on display within the exhibition such as Kher’s Virus IX and Cloudwalker.
DJ Haram is half of 700 Bliss with Moor Mother, who curates Philadelphia (f)LAWLESS nights, and issued the zine Bros Fall Back. Stylistically versatile, she not only throws down for Jersey, Philly, and Baltimore with club and booty bounce sets but also pays homage to her roots in the tradition of Middle Eastern dance music in addition to DIY noise and experimental sounds.
DJ Haram is a producer and DJ originally from New Jersey, currently based in Philadelphia. DJ Haram (along with Moor Mother) is 1/2 of the noise/rap group 700 Bliss. In spring 2017, Haram composed an original score for the debut tour of Richard Siegal’s Munich-based modern dance company, Ballet of Difference. DJ Haram participated in Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in summer 2017. In Philadelphia, Haram curates (f)LAWLESS, a legal fundraiser party series; Gas, a monthly live/DIY hip-hop night; RAGE RADIO a monthly radio program hosted on 91.7 FM. She has curated events for MoMa PS1 Sunday Sessions and FringeArts Festival in Philadelphia. Recent and upcoming tour highlights include performances at Unsound Krakow; MoMA PS1 Warm Up; Bonnaroo; De School Amsterdam; Creamcake Berlin; Razzmatazz Barcelona; Damas Lisbon; Paradox Baltimore; GHE2OG0TH1K New York City; Club Chai Oakland, and Drake Hotel Toronto.
