Siavash Amini ~ TAR

Earlier this year, we predicted a trend toward darker music, and Siavash Animi‘s TAR is certainly a step in this direction.  Seeking to translate fear into sound, the Iranian artist covers traditional instruments (Nima Aghiani’s violin, Pouya Pour-Amin’s double bass) with thick, angry drone.

Constantine ~ Hades

Nickolas Mohanna ~ Chroma

Chroma, the latest sound art oddity from Nickolas Mohanna, dilates from the smallest pinprick: a sustained piano chord, ground into digital plaster, looms into view. The notes quiver in place, floating aloof beside a 60hz hum, chopped and looped with

Yann Novak ~ Surroundings

Gianluca Favaron ~ Blank Spaces (I Don’t Want To Be Happy)
