QTT10 - Kareem Lotfy
At the top of New York cassette commanders Quiet Time Tapes latest batch is Kareem Lotfy’s latest album of hissing and crackling future-ambient compositions.
Born in Cairo in 1985, the artist, musician and graphic designer has exhibited visual work in London, Singapore and Cairo, released an album on 100copies in 2008 and recently contributed a piece to PAN’s exalted Mono No Aware compilation. For QTT10 he delves into immersive and emotive waters, transmitting stirring sonic textures reflective of intimate virtual connection.
Two cassettes of the music - “one for you, one for a friend” - come housed in QT’s signature double case with a zine designed by the artist.
