Raheel Khan is a Sound Artist and Musician originally born in Nottingham and now based in Manchester (UK).
His work explores notions of heritage, society and the inertia of cultural progression. Raheel combines field recordings, fragmented synthetic textures and Piano compositions often creating pieces with both personal memories and collective consciousness. His work dances between the private and public spheres creating an intimate archive of abstract social commentary.
His most recent project 'Mileage', which premiered on BBC6 Music uses a collage of recordings from taxi journeys to champion the voices of the often unsung heroes, blurring the already slightly uncomfortable lines between service user/giver and hospitality giver/receiver in post Brexit, and now post Covid Britain.
His productions have seen releases with Leeds based label, 'Reel Long Overdub' and Manchester based label 'Banana Hill' as well as radio broadcasts on BBC Radio 1 and BBC Asian network.
Previous projects have been with Manchester International Festival, Tyneside Cinema and The Royal Exchange Theatre as well as live performances and DJ sets at Soup Kitchen, Band on the Wall, BBC Maida Vale and Glastonbury.
Raheel is currently on the MIF21 Creative Fellowship as well as working with Counterpoints Arts and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop on their latest commissioning projects.
