Young Lebanese electronics musician Jad Atoui was quite busy in the months leading to this radio interview: he held his first live performance in Beirut, alongside Munma, at Art Lounge in September 2010, followed by a second gig during The Basement’s farewell concerts in January 2011, and culminating in an obnoxiously brilliant event at Hamra’s Jazz Club later that same month, organized by Acousmatik System; there, the 17-year old played alongside such luminaries as Belgium’s Kirdec and Singapore’s One Man Nation.
Jad Atoui, the brother of phenomenal electro-acoustic musician Tarek Atoui, was the guest of Ruptures to talk about his burgeoning career in electronic music, and to present his own live compositions.
Due to a freak technical incident, we are not presently able to relay the details of the interview, as none of the audio was properly preserved. Luckily, however, Atoui’s three live performances were recorded on a different set of channels, and can be listened to by clicking the links below:
