Biography

Myriam El Haïk is a French-Moroccan artist, composer and graduate of l’Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris. In Europe, she is represented by Galerie Vincenz Sala Paris / Berlin and in Morocco by Kulte Gallery & Editions and Le Cube Centre d’Art. She has participated in several exhibitions, both solo and group shows, in which her drawings, music, videos, installations and performances were showcased.

Artistic project : Toy Toy!

Toy Toy! was written based on a simple rhythm and a four note progression: A, B, C, E or La, Si, Do, Mi. The idea of this piece is to play around by repeating and alternating this motif and its different combinations. The resulting sound structures grow more and more complex until neither the motif nor the rhythm played by the musicians are discernable. The toy piano’s particular tone, which produces notes that do not ring completely in tune nor completely out of tune, creates surprising sounds recalling at times the mechanical piano and at others chimes or even bells. Finally, in her radical choice of the toy piano, Myriam El Haïk alludes to childhood and to the pleasure of playing. In this way, she reminds us that music can really be child’s play.
