About DJ Cheb I Sabbah:
The music of the world converges through the productions and remixes of Algeria-born and San Francisco-based DJ Cheb I Sabbah. The producer/promoter of a now defunct world music series, 1002 Nights, Sabbah presented a diverse range of musicians including Pakistani Qawwali singer Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and London-based Bhangra group, Bally Sagoo. Since 1988, Sabbah has presented a similar series, Africa/India/Arabia, weekly at Nickie’s, a popular San Francisco nightclub. Sabbah began his professional career in the mid-’60s, when he DJed at a Parisian club where he played American soul records. In the late ’60s, he became involved with an experimental performance group, the Living Theater. After moving to San Francisco in 1986, he joined a similar group, the Tribal Warning Theater, building a solid reputation for his artistically spliced soundtracks for the group’s shows. Sabbah’s debut album, The Majoon Traveler, released in 1994, combined cut-up remixes of pieces by Don Cherry, Ornette Coleman, and Angus Maclise with the poetry of Ira Cohen.
VJ Biolumenence has been intriguing Bay Area crowds with his dynamic, crowd pleasing visuals for over five years. His flowing, flowering, fluctuating visuals are beamed from a beating, breathing, bawling silicon heart, filtered through the lithe liquid liturgy of the crowd’s energy and streamed steaming out high lumen projectors from SF venues (1015, Mighty, Concourse Center) to the biggest sound camps on the playa (Opulent Temple, Hookahdome, Fractal Nation). Biolumenence has thrilled audiences along side such musical luminaries as Opiou, Infected Mushroom, Christopher Lawrence, Sid Gris, Sex Pixels, Cheb i Sebbah, and David Starfire. Best known for his real-time “audio-reactive” visuals, Biolumenence’s shows are known for creating a flowing sense of synchronicity of the senses, and elevating the crowd’s energy into a frenetic, ecstatic, kinetic realm.
