Iranian experimental artist Siavash Amini has just announced a new album A Trail of Laughters, due out on Room40 in June this year. We’ve been fans of his music for a number of years now, in fact he even penned something for a us five years ago.
We took the opportunity to ask him to create a mix for us, and the results are a sonically adventurous and quite beautiful suite a sound, picking up pieces from the likes of sound ecologist, field recordist and composer Hildegard Westerkamp to Musique Concrète artist Lionel Marchetti to his Australian label honcho Lawrence English.
You can find A Trail of Laughters here.
