Charles Cohen
 & Rabih Beaini in conversation with Jennifer Lucy Allan
Hosted by The Wire.

Online editor of The Wire magazine Jennifer Lucy Allen hosts a conversation between pioneering synthesizer improviser Charles Cohen and Rabih Beaini aka Morphosis.

Beaini recently released a retrospective trilogy of Cohen’s works on his own Morphine Records – the first extensive documentation of Cohen’s over four decades making music. Following two years of communication, Cohen and Beaini will meet and perform together for the first time at CTM 2014.






Rabih Beaini[LB/DE]

Lebanese-born producer and DJ Rabih Beaini (formerly known as Morphosis) specializes in grainy, imaginative analogue techno. In the past year however, his Morphine label has telescoped in on key (often overlooked) voices in avant-garde electronic and outernational music.

Jennifer Lucy Allan[UK]

Jennifer Lucy Allan is online editor for The Wire magazine. She also runs Arc Light Editions, part of Multiverse Music.

Charles Cohen[US]

Synthesizer improvisor and experimental composer Charles Cohen produces solely on a vintage Buchla Music Easel synthesizer, a rare integrated analogue performance instrument created in the early 1960s by synthesizer pioneer Don Buchla. Cohen’s intuitive approach to making music combines the spontaneity, energy, and rhythm of free jazz with the sonic possibilities of synthesizers.
