Label: Mikroton Recordings    
Released in: Russia    

"Limmat is the second CD from Günter Müller, Jason Kahn and Christian Wolfarth, following their first album Drumming released in 2005 on Creative Sources. Recorded during one afternoon in Kahn's Zürich studio, Limmat features three unedited improvisations melding microsounds, percussive mastery and swaths of noise and static into a mesmerizing whole.

Originally from Los Angeles, Jason Kahn has lived in Europe since 1990. He has performed or recorded with musicians such as Günter Müller, Norbert Möslang, Kim Cascone, Arnold Dreyblatt, Steve Roden, Dieb13, Richard Francis, Ryu Hankil, Jon Mueller, z'ev and many others.
