Using Modular synthesiser, field recordings and voice, and often paired with video, light manipulation and visual collaborations, AHRKH explores the relationship between sound and vision, and their ability to invoke altered states, to touch the intangible within us and transcend our present reality, or in his own words “Traverse the infinite aural/astral panorama and ultra-dimensional transportation methods via sound”.
