FRKTL is the solo experimental project of British-Egyptian interdisciplinary artist Sarah Badr. A classically trained multi-instrumentalist, she works with live sampling and improvisation, vocal manipulation, field recordings, and generative rhythms to compose intensely emotive and immersive explorations of sound. Her sets and mixes blend disparate styles seamlessly, challenging preconceptions of tradition and geography. FRKTL’s critically acclaimed sixth release and third full-length album, Excision After Love Collapses, marks nearly a decade of independent, self-published works.
