Topologie D'une Absence
A Ciné-concert that combines music and film based on extraordinary archive footage from the 1920s, captured in #Lebanon by Pathé and Gaumont.
Particularly relevant to the country’s situation today, these images bring the past back to life, a hundred years after these bodies, faces and eyes were first caught by the camera.
Film research & editing by Rami El Sabbagh.
Music by:
Abed Kobeissy - Buzuk, Electronics
Sary Moussa - Electronics
Sharif Sehnaoui - Electric guitar

Snakeskin (Julia Sabra and Fadi Tabbal)
Julia Sabra and Fadi Tabbal’s duo is visionary electronic dream pop, shapeshifting above ambient and industrial undercurrents. It is moody, unsettling, luminous – the culmination of a decade of collaboration and friendship between producer/musician/engineer Tabbal, and singer-songwriter/musician Sabra from indie trio Postcards.
Their debut album ‘Snakeskin’ was released on October 14, 2022, as part of the Corrosion Series –– a collaborative effort by Portland-based label Beacon Sound and Beirut-based label Ruptured. Sabra and Tabbal began working on the record in the aftermath of the August 2020 port explosion, composing their first track 'Roots' for the Ruptured-curated series The Drone Sessions.
