Artist Biographies:

" 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."

"Space Text Sound documents text material used in three of my recent installations: An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Hong Kong (After Perec) (2016), Drifting (2016) and Other Ghosts (2015).

All three of these works investigate the nexus points between the production of space through sound and how text can be used to reflect on this process. I'm interested in how words can convey the sense of place sounds can and, beyond this, how these words impart a feeling for inner spaces, often more commonly referred to as reading between the lines. By entering this inner space of text we can also approach the notion of hearing between the sounds, sensitizing ourselves to that void where spaces form, mutate, collide.

Reading through these texts after the installations were long over, I found that they stood on their own apart from the greater works they were initially a component of and therefore valid standing on their own presented in book form."-Editions



When I entered
the courtyard
only ventilator
hum and swinging
broom whisking
Beijing dust to
the street
from where it
came and to
which I return
bicycle bell
warning my
way.



From my balcony
the drum tower
a dark shape
on the
horizon
night is falling
soft music sifts
across the houses
to disappear in
a corridor of
traffic marking
the end of
the night.
