The focus of this show is experimental music from Iran, ahead of our UK residency for Iranians musicians and sound artists Iran-UK Sonics. We sample submissions to the residency, which is a two week collaboration at London College of Communication from 9th December 2013, with a live performance at Southbank Centre.
The 5 participants join seminal improv guitarist, AMM‘s Keith Rowe and free jazz pianist/ composer Veryan Weston for a performance at Southbank’s Queen Elizabeth Hall, Friday 13 Dec. The Iranian sound artists and musicians will collaborate in live improv with graduates from LCC Sound Arts and Design department.
Tracks in this show are from both shortlisted submissions and selected participants, ranging from electronica to acoustic recordings and soundscapes. Played here are Sepehr Haghighi (pictured), Heckmat(t) – Planet Seed, Niloufar Em and shortlisted applicants Arash Lotfi and Mona Najafizadeh. The live performance is free.
