The Ruptured Sessions

Winding his hands around like an entrancing magician, Tarek Atoui turns sound waves into fantastically bewitching electric noises as the metal plates and electric wires covering his table form a mixed-up cauldron of experimental sounds. Add to that the super-energised, no-holding-back drumming of Uriel Barthelemi and you have one of the two sets of emotion-driven music witnessed on Thursday night at Beirut Art Center. It was the launch of Ziad Nawfal's The Ruptured Sessions Volume Two - live recordings of experimental music in the studios of Radio Lebanon and I became a fascinated fan.
