Continuing his experiments combining elements of drone and modern classical music, Tehran based composer Siavash Amini 4th solo LP "Tar" explores the fragile tensions between an individual and a collective subconscious.

Making it's starting point the expression of these feelings in dreams and nightmares of each individual, and translating the images, feelings and textures into sound.

After a series of noisier and less melodic albums, this release catches the active listener with a subtle tension created by oscillating sounds somewhere between discomfort and transcendence.

Even if some parts of TAR are quite disturbing, the record gets never simply dark. "Amini provides a satisfying mix of modern classical composition, ambient noise, granular synthesis and musique concrète with a hint of muscularity below its serene surface." The Guardian.
