Sote is a composer and sound designer living in America. On a chance visit to Iran her heard a sound he had never heard before which led to a long relationship with Alireza Mashayekhi with whom he recently released a double CD on Sub Rosa records. With roots in Germany, he has developed a trademark process for audio that gives his work it’s unique shape and signature sound. After a release of drum and bass on WARP records, Sote has moved into experimental music on Sub Rosa.
Fari talks with him about those processes and the moment he first heard Mashayekhi’s music, and we hear two of these experimental tracks from the album Persian Electronic Music Yesterday and Today 1966-2006. Many thanks to Sub Rosa Records for allowing us to podcast these tracks.
This show was broadcast live from Resonancefm studios in London April 7th 2008.
