Dj Cosma

Cosma

Biography

Cosma is Avihen Livne, born 1979 near Haifa, Israel. Avihen started his musical way in the dark clubs of Haifa and the area, listening to new wave and more electronic stuff: Depech Mode, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Front 242 etc. Than (1995) trance arrived, he said, and put some consciousness between everybody’s feet and brain. That affected him as well, and he started to make music in 1998. As he has been into computers since he was very young, making music with the computer was natural to him.

He worked first with Benny Risher as Diablo. In 2000 Avihen started to work under the name Cosma: he released quite a few tracks on compilations and in September 2001 Avihen released his debut solo album Simplicity. After the release of this album (considered a milestone release in every aspect as Avihen found a new formula of Israeli trance), Cosma became an established name and he performed live all around the globe.

Cosma moved on to signing his new album, Nonstop, to the Israeli label Hommega. Following the album’s release, he was scheduled for a world tour going through Brazil, Japan, Mexico, South Africa and England. To prepare himself for this exciting stage of his musical career, he decided to take some time off in Goa, India. On February 2003, while driving back from Palulim beach to his hotel, he was involved in a motorcycle accident. He was hospitalized, but despite all medical efforts, he passed away.

Dark and pounding, not for lightweights, Cosma’s music rocks your core without beating your brains out, all while keeping his famous trademark - his unique cosmic atmosphere. His music is his legacy
