Iranian producer Amirali has announced a new EP called Sokoot which will be out on September 29th via Dark Matters. He tries to reimagine music from his eclectic répertoire in a neo-classical context with Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich, one of the top 10 philharmonic orchestras in the world.
Translating as ‘Silence’ in Farsi, the 3 tracks are designed to have a connection with our current state: When the virus hit, the world went silent. “I composed these pieces with my dear friend Jakob Eisenbach who was also the conductor for the Tonhalle concert in Zurich,” he explains. “The 1st piece ’Dystopia’ expresses the current chaotic state the world is facing; the virus, corruption, constant war and global warming, but I always like to think there’s light at the end of the tunnel in order to stay sane. The second piece ‘Resurrected’ shows a new beginning; a coming back to life. Maybe it’s about myself after being away for a while. The 3rd and final piece ‘Dismantle The Sun is; a reset to everything. Imagine if there was a push button for that.”
