Rashad Becker

"Rashad Becker's work is probably the closest thing we currently have to a disturbing glimpse through a rupture in the fabric of reality. Cherish it appropriately."
Brainwashed

A composer and musician residing in Berlin, Rashad Becker creates multilayered compositions populated by an ensemble of sonic entities, some smug, some shy, some agitators, others ready to surrender. There is often a tragic comedic touch, like a cartoon version of what could be described as a fertility dance from another dimension.

His recent release on Berlin label PAN is hailed as ‘redolent of Smithsonian Folkways’ field recordings, with nods to early musique concrète and intercepted extraterrestrial transmissions’.

Mainly active as a solo artist, Rashad finds himself in a series of permanent collaborations alongside Eli Keszler, Moritz von Oswald and as a member of the formation Moleglove.

Listen back to Rashad Becker live on The Sound Barrier. Studio 5 Live is proudly brought to you by Mountain Goat.
