Donato Dozzy and Rabih Beaini, AKA Morphosis, have a multi-pronged collaboration in the works for this fall.
Contemporary art fiends may have been the first to catch wind that the two were teaming up: they have an audio installation in the Venice Biennial that's running through November. While working on that project, the pair had the idea to keep the collaboration going, this time bringing it into a context that may be more familiar to their regular fans. Next up is a series of back-to-back DJ gigs under the name Dozzy/Beaini, with September dates in Amsterdam and Paris and a November appearance at London's fabric already inked in. And though details are still scarce, they're planning to release an EP at some point after the summer.
