FRKTL سارة بدر is the solo experimental music project of British-Egyptian artist and composer Sarah Badr. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist working with live sampling, improvisation, vocal manipulation, generative processes and field recordings, she creates emotive, immersive explorations of sound. Building systems for 3D graphics and spatial audio generation, she explores relationships between form and space in new tech domains. Her work is inspired and informed by nature, from world creation and biomorphic design, to simulations of complex organic phenomena. Her critically acclaimed album, Excision After Love Collapses, marks nearly a decade of independent, self-published works. She is an Oram Award recipient for innovation in sound, music and related technologies.
