Six Pillars – New Music from Iran VI, Siavash Amini by 6pillars
Hi there, I often listen to your show from Sydney and thought I would let you know about a new album by my telematic music group Ethernet Orchestra that features international musicians improvising from Iran, Europe, Brazil, Australia, Canada, and the United States. This includes instruments such as Persian tar, and tanbur, Mongolian Horse fiddle and throat singing blended with sonic art electronics and processed trumpet, guitar, and saxophone performing freely improvised music.
Diaspora is released through the Chilean net label Pueblo Nuevo and is free to download under creative commons license.
If you like any of it enough to play it, let me know and I’ll put it out through our networks.
