After 2020’s collaboration with Toulouse-based Saåad and 2019’s Serus, Tehran-based musician and sound artist Siavash Amini is back with a new album called A Mimemis of Nothingness which is out now via Hallow Ground. Full streaming is available here. The six tracks were conceived in close collaboration with another artist and see the prolific composer intensify his interdisciplinary approach.
According to the press release, The six tracks enter a dialogue with the photographs of Nooshin Shafiee, an acclaimed artist whose work capturing their hometown Tehran becomes the starting point for one of Amini’s most visceral and haunting records. »A Mimesis of Nothingness« translates the ephemeral situations and melancholic moods of Shafiee’s pictures into suspenseful soundscapes that masterfully navigate between the concrete and the abstract.
