is an electronic music producer and artist based in Berlin, Germany. Fofana’s music contrasts the reality of our world with what is beyond it, and explores questions of movement, migration, alienation, and belonging. Fofana’s overlapping interests in history and the present, and his practice of transmuting text into the affective medium of sound, manifests in multisensory live performances and installations featuring original music compositions, field recordings, and archival material. Fofana established the SCI-FI & FANTASY music imprint in 2012. Releases include Another World
(2015); Brancusi Sculpting Beyonce
(2018); and Black Metamorphosis
