Siavash Amini
Foras

Siavash Amini's rain-textured drone has wowed us ever since What the Wind Whispered to the Trees, where neutral environmental grounds found vulnerable, almost songwritten ambience. Foras is his sixth solo record in as many years and sees him continue to traverse these liminal spaces, considering the very way our surroundings lead our emotions, considering architecture as psychology. You must cop this.
  • Vinyl LP (HG1805)

Siavash Amini + Umchunga
The Brightest Winter Sun

This exciting pairing of Iranian artists Siavash Amini and Umchunga finds them collecting piano works by unspecified 18th- and 19th-Century composers (check the years of death in the titles for clues) and subjecting them to a good reworking. With a goal of removing thematic and tonal structure, anything goes, really, so a range of different, sombre atmospheres come out.

Siavash Amini & Matt Finney
Gospel

This album carries a content note for CSA.  On Gospel, Savish Amini and Matt Finney work together to explore and process Finney's experiences of being abused as a child. Finney's vocals are unflinching and raw, supported by Amini's harsh and ominous drones. The album is also a testament to friendship, Finney credits Amini with helping him get to where he is now.

Siavash Amini
TAR

Containing an ocean-sized depth of emotion and meaning, TAR is Tehran-based producer Siavash Amini's 2017 brainchild. Comprised of four offerings, including the mammoth twelve-minutes-plus tracks 'A Dream's Frozen Reflection' and 'The Dust We Breathe', this is a sophisticated take on modern drone and classical genres.

Siavash Amini & Matt Finney
Familial Rot

Siavash Amini is a real keeper. He weaves clear and distorted textures together gently and destructively at one, as was clear from the violin-aided 'What The Wind Whispered to the Trees'. Here, he joins forces with Matt Finney, who supplies vocals for another record that puts Amini's brooding compositions against something elucidating. It's out on Umor Rex -- have they ever steered you wrong?

Siavash Amini
What Wind Whispered To The Trees

Concept piece by Iranian artist Siavash Amini, based on characters from 'The Devils' and 'The Brothers Karamazov' by Dostoevsky. Atmospheric soundscapes with whispering strings and airy-yet-heavy drones. A dark and intense experience, Amini blends rawness and subtlety to great effect. This comes on digipack CD.
