Casablanca Tells is a choral work which presents a layered dialogue between different facets of the city. Casablanca is embodied through a male and female voice that act as the central narrators of the city. These monologues where constructed using many recorded interviews taken across the urban soundscape. To stretch the importance of the core characteristics of the city- its chaotic and organic resistance – a selection of the most prominent Nass El Ghiwan songs have been interpreted by people met on the street and then translated into a vocal interpretation by a Soprano singer, Myriam Sif. Casablanca will thus translated via a work of sonic spazialisation concieved in situ for the place of the exhibition.
