descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Working together since 2004 in a trio with Guunter Muuller, the duo project of Christian Wolfarth and Jason Kahn signals a return to their collaboration - this time with Jason Kahn singing and not on electronics. Though both musicians use acoustic sound sources, together their music might seem electronic. Wolfarth's cymbal work often resembles a multitude of oscillators buzzing in and out of phase and Kahn's use of the voice could be mistaken for white noise or a failing distortion pedal. The duo is not just about sound but a direct approach to listening, immersive yet also raw and direct, the music unfolding in realtime, structure and flow changing with each breath and stroke of a cymbal."-Confront

" is a musician, artist and writer. He was born 1960 in New York and grew up in Los Angeles. He re-located to Europe in 1990 and is currently based in Zürich.

As an electronic musician, vocalist and drummer Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which he composes for specific groups.

Kahn has exhibited his installations in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites internationally. These works focus on the idea of space: the conceptual and physical juncture points, its production and dissolution, and our relation to it as a political, social and environmental medium.

Kahn's other activities include sound pieces for radio, film, dance and theater. He has also designed numerous CD, LP and cassette covers. As a writer, his work has appeared in books, magazines and as liner notes to many audio publications.

Performing regularly around the world, Kahn has given concerts throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia, China, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Israel, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Taiwan, Turkey and South Africa.

In 2011 Kahn started the Editions imprint to publish his own recordings and writings."
