• iota mikro

Build up like a dream sequence iota mikro invites us into an intimate and introspective journey by evoking imaginary memories from Aurélie Nyirabikali Lierman’s very early childhood years. iota mikro is an artistic reflection on Lierman’s double identity, Belgian and Rwandan, revealing her experiences of the two different realities. All sounds heard are purely based on recent field recordings from Lierman’s birthplace at the Karisimbi volcano in Rwanda. Since her real paper birth certificate is missing, this is Lierman’s sonic birth certificate.

iota mikro is dedicated to her Rwandan Belgian godchild: Jerom Dom.
