bani haykal experiments with text + music. A member of the band b-quartet, bani considers music (making/processes) as material. His projects investigate modes of interfacing and interaction with feedback/feedforward mechanisms.

Manifestations of his research culminate into works of various forms encompassing installation, poetry, and performance. His current work frames encryption as a process and basis for human-machine intimacy by navigating interfaces such as a QWERTY keyboard as mediums of interactivity.
