“Within the context of the recent war between Israel and Hezbollah, releasing an album entitled Beyrouth is a cultural gesture that cannot be apolitical. Nevertheless, this work was made long before this conflict arose. It is actually composed of super8 films shot in the beginning of the 70s in Beirut, during the years preceding the first Lebanon war started in 1975. Two movies were edited from these old 8mm tapes and two soundtracks were composed. One of these soundtracks was produced on a laptop, the other one was improvised watching the images with a Moog, a Fender Rhodes, some effects and electronic loops. Now prepare to dive into the intimacy of a lebanese recomposed family that could also have belong to another country, without war.”
Discpline is the pseudonym of Joseph Ghosn. He’s been releasing music since the end of the 90s. His first album, 4 Moogs, was a tribute to American minimalism and Steve Reich. He was born in Beirut and the images from the DVD were shot by his father.
