Artist Profile

Jason Kahn was born in New York in 1960 and grew up in Los Angeles. He moved to Europe in 1990, first living in Berlin until 1999 then moving to Switzerland. He is currently based in Zürich. Kahn came of musical age in the late 1970′s, playing drums in punk bands and later making many records for the Los Angeles-based SST label.

He turned more to improvised music in the late 1980′s, culminating with his move to Berlin where he spent many years working as a drummer and percussionist in different projects of improvised music, as well as playing in composer Arnold Dreyblatt’s group The Orchestra of Excited Strings.

In Berlin Kahn began working with electronics and composing. He started releasing solo CD’s in 1998 on his Cut imprint, which ran from 1997 until 2007. Kahn also began exhibiting sound installations in 2001 and has since shown many works in museums, galleries, art spaces and public sites around the world.

Kahn collaborates regularly with many musicians, both in improvised settings and in the context of graphical scores which Kahn composes for specific groupings of musicians. He has performed throughout Europe, North and South America, Australia, Egypt, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Russia, Singapore, Turkey and South Africa.
