Cody Drasser Brilliant collection of tracks that span a wide swath of the experimental underground in Lebanon. From more traditional sounds of the region to more modern sounds associated with the experimental/electronic ambient genres, this is an excellent introduction to many fascinating musicians working in the scene in this often overlooked country. Highly recommended. Favorite track: Jad Atoui - Diving Blue.

Gwynplaine de Pétroleuse Unexplaned Sounds Group's Lebanese compliation sees that some of the most innovative and imaginative Avant-Garde artists in Lebanon get the international recognition they deserve. Utilizing an array of styles and techniques ranging from distorted drones and electronic percussion to scraped and raked string instruments all of the artists presented here put down some of their finest works. I can tell from this release that Beirut has a very close and tight knit art scene that pushes boundaries in some of the strangest, yet most amazing ways. Favorite track: Fadi Tabbal - Music For Arcs and Diameters -- bonus digital track.

Noctilucant Surprisingly wonderful collection of songs! A great offering of dark ambient, drone, and experimental music with a “middle eastern” undercurrent to most tracks. Favorite track: Tony Elieh - it's good to die every now and then (part 4) -- bonus digital track.

about

Following the Second World War (1945-1949), Beirut established itself as the cultural capital of the Middle East, with the Lebanese music scene leading the way. Lebanese music has a distinct sound due to the country’s unique fusion of Western and Eastern influences. Even Lebanese folk compositions often reference Western contemporary music. After 15 years of civil war and a decade of post war rehabilitation, the situation of alternative art and especially music was very poor in Lebanon. Things began to change around 2000 with the arrival of a new generation of musicians, born at the beginning and during the war, more interested in experimental art forms than in fame or glory. The experimental music scene in Beirut, may exist in relative geographic isolation from other global movements of a similar ilk, but over the past fifteen years it has become a dynamic hub for a dense concentration of fiercely independent musical voices. From humble beginnings and tiny numbers, the close-knit community has grown and thrived.

Unexplained Sounds Group is proud to release an anthology of the contemporary electroacoustic music from Lebanon. As always the compilation doesn’t pretend to be exhaustive of the whole Lebanese experimental scene, being the main goal, simply to turn on a spotlight on it. Another chapter of the "experimental surveys" series to map the best upcoming music from the international underground scene.

Special thanks to Joseph Doumet for his support, and to all artists involved in the project for their kind and much appreciated collaboration.
