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."

descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Second LP from the duo Jason Kahn / Christian Wolfarth. Two improvised pieces recorded direct and undedited on the evening of December 22, 2019 in Zurich. Kahn's vocals positioned somewhere between field holler, muezzin call and the work of Henri Chopin; his slide guitar at once reminiscent of Son House and the instruments of Harry Partch. Wolfarth's snare playing explores the microsounds of percussion, often coming across more electronic than acoustic in nature, yet always harking back to the swing and forward propulsion of the great jazz drummers."-Editions
