Jason Kahn + Fritz Welch + Rebecca Wilcox and Hannah Ellul

Born 1960 in New York, Jason Kahn is a musician, artist and writer. He lives in Zürich.
As an electronic musician, guitarist, vocalist and percussionist Kahn collaborates with many international musicians in the context of free improvised music. He has also composed numerous electro acoustic pieces and graphical scores written for specific groups and musicians. His work can be heard on over two hundred solo, collaborative and compilation releases.

Kahn’s installations and interventions have been shown 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.

Fritz Welch is a drummer, percussionist and vocalist determined to stretch the escalator of possibilities into the bloodshot eye of results.

Hannah Ellul & Rebecca Wilcox have been making sound together since spring 2020, and so working at a physical distance shaped the start of the collaboration. During lockdown, something like a conversation emerged in a to- and fro- of writing and recordings, building into pieces that reflect a stretched-out kind of experience. Most of the sounds – recorded, manipulated, respun – come from close to hand, everyday, tactile objects, accidents, or routines, and from the body as it rubs, carries, plays, waits, dawdles with its surroundings. The voices are chatting, syncopating, trying to change position, getting in a mess.
