Hisham Mayet Guest Lecture


Hisham Mayet will focus his talk on two releases from Sublime Frequencies:

The Photographs Of Charles Duvelle—Disques OCORA And Collection PROPHET

Deben Bhattacharya- PARIS to CALCUTTA—Men and Music on The Desert Road

Hisham Mayet is a film maker, photographer, musical researcher and sound adventurer based in Portland Oregon. He was born on the Barbary Coast of North Africa. Hisham is co-founder and co-owner of the Sublime Frequencies label, where he has realized various documentary films and music recordings. He has traveled all around the world and has been documenting many obscure scenes, from eastern psyche pop to Sahel post folk, from ancient to more futuristic.

Sublime Frequencies is a collective of explorers dedicated to acquiring and exposing obscure sights and sounds from modern and traditional urban and rural frontiers via film and video, field recordings, radio and short wave transmissions, international folk and pop music, sound anomalies, and other forms of human and natural expression not documented sufficiently through all channels of academic research, the modern recording industry, media, or corporate foundations.

Presented with support from the Ethnic Studies Department.
