Cosma is Avihen Livneh, born 1979 in Kiryat Bialik near Haifa and was taken from us on the 10th of February, 2003 in a motorcycle accident in Goa. In between, he left a strong mark in the world of trance with his deep and strong atmospheric music.Avihen started his musical way in the dark clubs of Haifa, Israel, listening to new wave music like Depeche Mode, Sisters of Mercy, The Cure, Front 242, etc. Then trance arrived, he said, and put some consciousness between everybody’s feet and brain- that affected him as well, and after a lot of parties, 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. His first Album was Insufficient Memory (Pandora records 1999) under the name Diablo, with Benny Reisher. Right after the release of the album, Avihen started to work alone under the name Cosma (suggested by DJ Jorg of SST). Avihen said a lot has changed since in the way he grasps music and in the making of it. Part of it he owed to working together with other people like Ido Ophir (Domestic) and Erez Eisen (Infected Mushroom).
In September 2001 he released the album 'Simplicity' (BNE). His second album 'Non-Stop' (HOMmega) was released after his death in June 2003. In the years prior to his death, Avihen was considered as one of the most promising talents in the scene, releasing deep atmospheric music that left a mark on the listeners and dancefloors. Till today, you can still hear Cosma`s tracks played at parties around the world. Good music never dies!
