British Council Commissioned Show at Southbank Centre, London

8th April

Together with Space F!ght and Pouya Ehsaei commissioned by British Council Iran we performed at Southbank Centre, London. For the Iranian New Year (Nowruz) celebration show, we composed original music aiming to mix Iranian folk with minimal techno and live improvisation. We mixed cheerful, upbeat techno music with ambient elements including Iranian influences (poems, rhythms and sampled instruments). Analysing the frequency spectra of Iranian music we synthesised new sound material using modular synthesiser, guitar pedals and custom made software.

Joining forces with Pouya Ehsaei  meant that we brought even more gear to to make the show. Setup was surprisingly simple and easy to mange by three people, each having specific roles. Pouya mixing, processing and mainly taking care of ambient material. Enrcio Bertelli – acoustic percussion improvisation and myself providing electronic rhythm section with drum machine (Analog Rytm) and sampler (Octatrack).

We were thrilled to …

LLEAPP 2013 Edinburgh

19th April

This year Laboratory for Laptop and Electronic Audio Performance Practice (LLEAPP) took place at Edinburgh University’s Inspace. I was invited to take part in  it, and I’m really glad I did come as it was an amazing experience. The Project featured workshops and performances with the group of top electronic and acoustic improvisers coming  from UK, Europe and USA. It was striking to see each performer with so individual setup, custom made software, DIY and hacked hardware.

I brought combination of instruments I use for Space F!ght, RPE Duo and Freeform projects and experimented their flexiblity in large electronic ensamble environment. I was manipulating my own sound rather then other performers and found it challenging to fit aesthetically with so many electronic musicians.

On the first day we were grouped randomly and performed few sets in quartets and trios finishing with the set featuring all the musicians involved. This …
