Bana Haffar is an artist who explores live modular synthesizer performance. Prior to switching over to synthesizers, she played bass professionally in Los Angeles, as a touring and session musician. Through modular synthesis, Bana is attempting to dismantle years of institutional ‘conditioning’ in traditional systems of music theory and rediscover sound. Haffar is also the co-creator of Modular on the Spot, a monthly outdoor synth happening that began on the Los Angeles river and has since spread to many cities across the United States.
[Bana will perform as part of Forthwith’s edition of Modular On The Spot]
