Fadi Tabbal 'On The Rooftop Looking Up'

£11.99

Lebanese musician, producer and sound engineer Fadi Tabbal’s first solo release, and consists of guitar pieces ranging from stripped acoustics to ambient/shoegazing-inspired treatments. 

Often referred to as “the hardest-working man in Lebanon’s alternative music scene,” Tabbal relocated to Beirut in 2006, following studies in sound engineering in Montreal, Canada; he promptly established Tunefork Recording Studios, a specialized work-space which offers customized services ranging from full band recordings, live sound, production and music composition.

Tabbal is a full-time member of several Lebanese bands, including psychedelic rock band The Incompetents, experimental rock quartet XEFM, and drone unit Under the Carpet. He collaborates frequently with folk singer Youmna Saba and punk band Scrambled Eggs.

In addition to managing and handling all engineering tasks at Tunefork Studios, Tabbal is a specialist in sound design and sound conception. He has worked on a variety of projects, including sound installations for Lebanese art group The Feel Collective, and sound design for films by Lebanese filmmakers Maher Abi-Samra, Rania Rafei, Leila Hoteit, among others.
