Mixed-media poet Samiir Saunders (@smaiduskhan) will be hosting a listening party for their new album, Twominuteglitches, at Artefact.


Twominuteglitches is an eclectic mix of 17 two-minute tracks combining elements of spoken word, hip-hop, jazz, rock, art rap, house, R&B, and glitch.

The album explores themes of intimacy, grief, self-care, and healing as well as Samiir’s signature examination of authenticity and communication in the age of digital technology.

The listening party will consist of a screening of some of Samiir’s earlier poetry-film work, followed by listening to the new album, and then a Q&A with the artist.

This is a FREE EVENT.
