Meet Philippe Cohen Solal
Philippe Cohen Solal is an internationally acclaimed musician, composer and producer who, with Mike Lindsay of Tunng, made OUTSIDER, an album, website, podcast and transmedia project inspired by the art and writings of Henry Darger. The album received critical acclaim upon release in 2021. That year, in celebration of Darger’s birthday, Cohen Solal presented a live performance incorporating the music from the album, live readings (by celebrated French actor Denis Lavant) and animated projections at Museé d’Art Moderne de Paris. Intuit plans to bring this performance to the United States in 2024. Never one to stand still, Cohen Solal continues to create new and exciting projects, collaborating with artists and musicians on albums, musicals and performances.
