MIKE COOPER // Ruptured Session #1 // 21 May 2010

British guitar player extraordinaire MIKE COOPER was the guest of RUPTURES to talk about his two concerts in Beirut, on May 24 at EM chill (along with Scrambled Eggs, Beirut’s punk/experimental rock musical activists), and on May 26 at Beirut Art Center. Cooper was accompanied in this session by Lebanese musician Sharif Sehnaoui.

Mike Cooper has established himself in the past decade or so as an international musical explorer, performing and recording, solo and in a number of inspired groupings and a variety of genres. His roots and inspiration range freely through traditional country blues, folk, original songs, free improvisation, pop songs, exotica, electronic music, electro-acoustic music, and ‘sonic gestural’ playing.
