Starry Night by Mazen Kerbaj

‘Dispatches From Beirut’ printed in the Media & Technology section of The Chronic presents comic artist and musician Mazen Kerbaj‘s visual diary of a week in Lebanon’s embattled capital.

Equally recognized for his music, as he is for his art, comics & painting, Kerbaj is an improviser, frequently combining free jazz, Middle Eastern sounds and noise to create complex yet beautiful, organic experimental works.

Listen to an excerpt from STARRY NIGHT, an improvised work recorded live by Kerbaj from the balcony of his flat in Beirut in 2006, while bombs destroyed parts of the city.
