Kahn is a sound and visual artist based in Zürich. His work
includes drawing, sound installation, performance and
composition. He was born in New York, grew up in Los Angeles
and relocated to Europe in 1990.
Kahn has been exhibiting his sound and visual works since the late 1990's, and has had solo and group exhibitions internationally, including museums, galleries and arts spaces in the USA, Canada, France, Croatia, Germany, Argentina, Egypt, Poland, Switzerland, Denmark, Austria and Spain.
Kahn has performed both solo and in collaboration with numerous other musicians worldwide, including Tetuzi Akiyama, Kim Cascone, Dieb13, Arnold Dreyblatt, Kevin Drumm, Erik M, John Hudak, Brandon Labelle, Jason Lescalleet, Christian Marclay, Norbert Möslang, David Moss, Günter Müller, Jon Mueller, Toshimaru Nakamura, Sachiko M, Sainkho Namtchylak, Evan Parker, Steve Roden, Taku Sugimoto and Otomo Yoshihide and many others.
Originally a percussionist, Kahn later began integrating live electronics into his playing. He currently performs with different combinations of percussion, analogue synthesizer or computer.
As a composer, Kahn's work draws on electronic and acoustic sound sources to create slowly developing compositions imbued with a sense of timelessness. His work addresses the entity of sound as both a physical and psychological factor shaping our consciousness.
Kahn's sound installations seek to enhance spatial awareness through sonic intervention, focusing on expanding our perception to other dimensions of seeing, hearing and feeling a space.
Kahn's sound work has been published on Cut, the CD label he founded in 1997, as well as Sirr, For4Ears, Brombron, Rossbin, Antifrost, Domizil, ATAK, Table of the Elements, Creative Source, Formed, Longbox Recordings, Crouton and numerous others.
Kahn has given concerts at various festivals, art spaces and clubs throughout Europe, North and South America, Japan, Korea, Israel, Turkey, Russia, Lebanon, Egypt and Australia.
