Description

Legal Fiction on CD

'Legal Fiction'is Ahmed El-Motassem's third CD output. Prior to that he recorded two CD's for Tellus, a New York City based multi-media corporation. Ahmed also produced tracks on compilation CD's by veteran guitarist/composer Elliott Sharp (State of the Union & Revenge of the Stuttering child). Born in Egypt, Ahmed moved to New York City as a teenager in the Eighties, and has since shared the same stage, as singer-songwriter as well as actor-performance artist, with artists varying from Lydia Lunch and Sonic Youth, to Hassan Hakmoun and Marc Ribot. The songs on this CD have the sound of a Brechtian-Mid-Eastern-rock-opera, with sharp zany psychopolitical lyrics vocalized through Iggy Pop-like vocal chords, and accompanied by the dedicated musicianship of saxophonist-composer Michael Attias, drummer Igal Foni, both Israel-born French-American citizens, as well as Evan Gallagher, a saint, on keyboards, piano and bass.
