CITYSYNTHESIS is a project by DJ Raph and Sophia Bauer, exploring real and imagined soundscapes of the city they have in common, Nairobi.
DJ Raph is an electronic music producer/DJ. An old head in the city’s underground scene, he is constantly testing the boundaries of what’s acceptable on the dancefloor or in a mix. Sophia Bauer is a sound artist based in Cologne. She often creates installations with extensive, imaginative soundscapes exploring places and ideas wondering if sound can be a source of knowledge in and of itself. Their archive project soundofnairobi.net won the Sound of the Year Award 2020 in the category Sound Innovator.
