MusicMap’s ‘Soundscape’ series is a brilliant way to keep up with local music scenes and global trends. Every few weeks, the people behind this amazing platform visit a different country and ask someone familiar with the scene to serve up a mix of the finest local sounds…

“Following our recent trips to Peru, India and Mexico, this month we’re visiting Lebanon for our first Soundscape from the Middle East. Our guide this time is Beirut-based DJ, promoter and producer Ziad Nawfal, co-founder of ground-breaking independent label Ruptured and managing director of Irtijal, the country’s first experimental music festival. Ziad Nawfal has spent his career championing independent Lebanese music via his ‘Ruptures’ and ‘Decalages’ shows on Radio Lebanon, so we knew we were in for a treat with his Soundscape mix…”

Listen below:

“It turns out that it’s pretty difficult to summarise Beirut musically in an hour,” Ziad admits. “Especially for someone who’s been working amidst this scene for so long. I chose to include artists who are all currently active, with the one exception of Scrambled Eggs, the first band I worked with back in 2006. I also chose to focus on more experimental and leftfield forms of music, whether electronic, rock, or folk, and in the process many artists whom I’m fond of had to be cast aside. Heartfelt apologies to those. This is a very personal take on what Beirut represents for me, musically. Sometimes pretty, sometimes ugly, often difficult, always challenging. I hope you enjoy this mix!”

ABOUT THE CD

The Ruptured Sessions is a series of live recordings produced by Lebanese radio host Ziad Nawfal in the studios of Radio Lebanon. The sessions take place during Nawfal’s weekly program Ruptures, with musicians from Beirut’s alternative scene and elsewhere.

Volume 5 documents the city’s younger wave of electronic composers, and features performances from the likes of Jad Atoui, Liliane Chlela, Mocques and RadioKVM. Also included are recordings from American experimental musician Robert Lowe (in his Lichens guise); up-and-coming international projects Praed and Under The Carpet; as well as an exclusive duo of Lebanese guitarist extraordinaire Charbel Nicolas Haber and Canadian sound-maker Radwan Ghazi Moumneh.

The sessions for Volume 5 were recorded in Beirut by sound engineer and musician Fadi Tabbal; and subsequently mastered in Berlin by Belgian artist and producer C-drík, who also worked on Ruptured releases El Rass and Under The Carpet.

Tashweesh is an audio-visual performance group from Ramallah, Palestine, which brings together installation artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme and musician boikutt, in a joint performance that combines sound, music and image. The result is an exploration of the collision between sound and video field recordings, archive material, vocals, breaks and soundscapes.

Performing in Beirut for the first time, Tashweesh will present a premiere of their most recent set, following 2010’s performances in venues such as CCA (Glasgow), SouthBank Centre (London), Danish Film Institute (Copenhagen), Images Festival (Copenhagen) and Re:View (Katowice).

“Tashweesh is the latest ‘voice’ to emerge from Palestine, representing a new generation of artists who are not only cutting edge but blurring the edges between artists disciplines, social action and geographical boundaries” – Aaron Cezar, Director of the Delfina Foundation, London

Jawad Nawfal was the guest of RUPTURES to present his album “PREVIEWS & PREMISES”, his fourth release under the MUNMA moniker.

“Previews & Premises” is a collection of tracks recorded by Nawfal between 2006 and 2010. Not exactly a compilation, not exactly a concept album either, this new release was accompanied by a live concert at The Basement, on May 14, which marked Munma’s first “solo” appearance on a Lebanese stage since 2007.

One of the first and foremost Lebanese artists operating in the field of electronica today, Nawfal has held live appearances in Lebanon and France, and regularly collaborated with Lebanese electronic musicians (including TRASH INC and dubstep project INDEX/LEFT).

Munma have released 3 albums of ambient electronic music between 2006 and 2008 on Lebanese label Incognito.
