Tanya Traboulsi, a regular fixture in the studios of Radio Lebanon as the official photographer of these live ‘Ruptured’ sessions, slipped behind the mike for the span of a few minutes, in order to present the book “UNTITLED TRACKS“, a book of photos (her own) and texts, edited by Ghalya Saadawi and yours truly, documenting Beirut’s alternative music scene.
Tanya was asked to select three artists representative of this scene, and her choices were Munma, Tarek Atoui, and Lumi.
As for the Scrambled Eggs, they were the guests of ‘Ruptures’ that night to highlight their contribution to both the launch event for said book, and the ‘Prelude to Irtijal‘ mini-festival taking place on March 10&11. The members of the band (Charbel Haber, Tony Elieh and Malek Rizkallah) were invited to select three favorite pieces of music. An interesting exercise, which yielded the following results:
Malek: Omar Rodriguez, The French Kicks, and Beethoven’s ‘Moonlight’ Sonata — Tony: Liars, Fly Pan Am, and Tool — Charbel: Nirvana, Jim O’Rourke, and Christian Wolff…
