Continuing his experiments combining elements of drone and modern classical music, Tehran based composer Siavash Aminis 4th solo LP "TAR" explores the fragile tensions between an individual and a collective subconscious. TAR is an inquiry of how fears and hopes of an individual can be related to a broader state of mind shared collectively. Making its starting point the expression of these feelings in dreams and nightmares of each individual, and translating the images, feelings and textures into sound. After a series of noisier and less melodic albums, this release catches the active listener with a subtle tension created by oscillating sounds somewhere between discomfort and transcendence. Even if some parts of TAR are quite disturbing, the record gets never simply dark. There is a much more sophisticated attitude that deludes us into a deeper act of listening and provokes some new synapse formations. TAR was premiered in February 2017 as a part of CTM festival`s Fear Anger Love edition. Echoes of previous releases by Shiavash Amini: "This is music to get lost in“ The Wire „Iranian artist Siavash Amini has been making his own brand of ethereal dream music (steadily heading into more nightmarish territory of late)“ The Quietus "Amini provides a satisfying mix of modern classical composition, ambient noise, granular synthesis and musique concrète with a hint of muscularity below its serene surface."
