Rabbi Darkside: Artist-in-Residence in Cassis, FR

To start 2020, I'm thrilled to be based in coastal south France for an artist residency in Cassis. I'm back and forth here for 2 sessions spanning the first 3 months of the year while on leave from teaching at The New School, spending my time and energies penning lyrics and poetry, composing music, hiking the breathtaking Calanques, meditating, tightening my French language game and doing some scholarly writing. Making occasional IG posts to give some insight into life here while doing my best to attune to the sky and seas.

Live In-Studio Performance at YouTubeSpace with American Beatbox Championships

​Last month I had the honor of filming with American Beatbox Championships as part of their residency at YouTubeSpace NYC. I did a live flip of “Justwhatodo” from a 2008 collab with my brother Jaro Cossiga (CZ). Originally he sampled human sounds into Ableton Live to create the album “Beat Apetit.” Here I sampled myself using the Boss RC505 and spit these bars of fury over my beatbox, then laced some cuts on the outro. Watch the whole vid here! Thanks ABC for having me. 2019 American Beatbox Championships are Nov 8-10 at Bogart House and tix are now available.
