Collection of texts and photographs charting the manifold, mutating and evolving alternative musical scene of Beirut – a city of organized chaos and complicated everyday politics. The stunning, high-quality photography by Tanya Traboulsi is sensitive and moving. The essays reflect on topics such as the melancholy sound of Soapkills, the politics and relevance of noise, and the interference of genres. The paperback book is bi-lingual (lebanese / english) and looks great – good design and printing. Edited by Ziad Nawfal and Ghalya Saadawi, Published by Amers Editions, Beirut, March 2010.
