We released Beyrouth by Discipline back in 2007 and recently found some copies in our stock. We want to offer this exceptional boxset again but this time we'll give all the profits from the sales to a NGO in Lebanon helping people after the devastating explosion that happened on August 4th 2020.
The boxset includes :
- a DVD with a movie made by Discipline from old family 8mm reels with a custom soundtrack.
- two 7 inches with music from Discipline x K.I.M. (Joakim and Flokim) on one side and a hand-drawn illustration by Charles Berberian carved onto the flip side.
- a booklet with a text by Philippe Azoury.
- each boxset is numbered and illustrated with a unique original photograph print taken by Ghosn in Beyrouth.
People buying the boxset will receive a link to download the movie soundtrack as well.

Ghosn, who was born in Beirut, explained the concept behind Beyrouth when it got initially released early 2007 : "Within the context of the recent war between Israel and Hezbollah, releasing an album entitled Beyrouth is a cultural gesture that cannot be apolitical. Nevertheless, this work was made long before this conflict arose. It is actually composed of super 8 films shot in the beginning of the '70s in Beirut, during the years preceding the first Lebanon war started in 1975. Two movies were edited from these old 8mm tapes and two soundtracks were composed. One of these soundtracks was produced on a laptop, the other one was improvised watching the images with a Moog, a Fender Rhodes, some effects and electronic loops. Now prepare to dive into the intimacy of a Lebanese recomposed family that could also have belonged to another country, without war."
