Telepoetic is known for its experimental, raw and post rock sound. Formed back in 2006, the trio is one of Egypt’s most unique sound driven music projects. The band has a big portfolio of live performances, at events such as 100LIVE Electronic Music Festival and Dcaf Festival. The band have also shared the stage with various international acts such as Mouse on Mars and Jan Jelinek from Germany, IQBIt from Italy, and Erik Truffaz from France. Currently Telepoetic is touring its first debut album Ensehab (Retreat) which was released in November, 2013; the LP is a fusion of electronica and progressive post rock and was referred to by CairoScene.com as: “a solid instrumental effort that takes unexpected turns that make you happy you took the trip”. Telepoetic’s live performances turn into an audiovisual experience, the band often uses light and visual installations to set on a proper mood for its audience.
