    Tarik Barri: Audiovisual Composer

    "I make music and moving images. With software that I write myself, I combine video and audio to create audiovisual compositions and live performances. The visuals inspire the sounds and the sounds inspire the visuals."

    Jody Elff: Sound Designer for The Ascent
