ROSHI FEAT PARS RADIO
Very pleased to finally be able to share a stage with the fabulous Roshi. I (Georgina) finally got to hear her and Graham Dids live at The Cosmic Puffin Festival aHulabula Stage in May this year.. very beautiful and original songs with a wide variety of approaches which keeps each song so individual and exciting..
Roshi featuring Pars Radio is the music project created around the beautiful individual interpretations of Iranian folk and original songs of Roshi Nasehi. The project features the electronic soundscapes/beats of Graham Dids (Gagarin, Nico, Pere Ubu etc etc) and has also included classical cello from Rachel Threlfal and experimental cello from Richard Thomas (NOW, The Hola, Arco). It’s an unusual sound world combining Roshi’s intimate singing style with Dids-Gagarin’s experimental electronic powers and at times haunting string layers to create a unique genre-crossing, ‘exotic, folktronica landscape.’
Very much enjoyed encym‘s work on Soundcloud and youtube, the abstracted ambient/dance flavour suits our night perfectly.. catch his track lux-catcher on Soundcloud. It’s a pleasure to have him perform a live set.. (he may have a guest instrumentalist too! )
Georgina Brett ’s music is created using her voice and effects pedals, creating instant choirs of sound often in an hypnotic style. The point of this music is not only to captivate with extraordinary timing and melodic style but also to help the listener to relax, in our ever increasingly fast world.
Her double album of vocal works with no lyrics, called Nonsense A and Nonsense B highlights the voice as an instrument, and as a vehicle for emotional expression. “So much music is to make us feel something so as to manipulate, buy or to follow.. this album let’s your thoughts be whatever they want to be.” Intellectually, Georgina’s music adheres to some modernist and avant-garde principles but using harmonious parameters, instead of the more dissonant style of it’s post-WW1 WW2 exponents. Georgina’s music is also gradually becoming a vehicle for more experimental work delving into expressive work which plays with the rich world of the media, politics, history, using matrices, semiotics and phonetics.
The UK-based duo of Michael Bearpark (guitars) and Andrew Ostler (synths) expertly ride the line between luscious, old-school progressive rock and modern ambient electronics. At times reminiscent of early Tangerine Dream, with hints of Fripp and Eno, Darkroom creates clouds of sequenced synths, chewy grooves, and looped phrases to support a variety of acoustic and electric guitar melodies that twist and turn in surprising, occasionally aggressive, ways. Moody and well-orchestrated, this release takes you places.
“The term “progressive electronica” is definitely an apt one for this duo. It’s accessible and addictive, while remaining expansive and exploratory. Quite a feat. I’ve been listening to these guys for nearly 20 years. Darkroom is a constant source of intrigue, wonder and invention.” Anil Prasad April 2014
