Raheel Khan is a Sound Artist, Producer and Pianist 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, due to be released on BBC later this year, uses recordings from taxi journeys to champion the voices of the often unsung heroes while blurring the already slightly uncomfortable lines between service user/giver, and hospitality giver/receiver in post Brexit and now post Covid Britain.

 

His productions under the alias 'Taurtollo' have seen releases under Leeds based label, 'Reel Long Overdub' alongside Manchester based label 'Banana Hill' as well as performances on BBC Asian network and at BBC Maida Vale. 
 

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 and Glastonbury
