Project Description

Space F!ght and Pouya Ehsaei commissioned by British Council Iran performed at Southbank Centre, London. Original music was composed aiming to mix Iranian folk with minimal techno and live improvisation for the Iranian New Year (Nowruz) celebration show. Cheerful, upbeat techno music was mixed with ambient elements including Iranian influences (poems, rhythms and sampled instruments). Analysing the frequency spectra of Iranian music, artists synthesised new sound material using modular synthesiser, guitar pedals and custom made software.

Joining forces with Pouya Ehsaei  meant that Space F!ght focused primarily on electronic sound. The only acoustic element of this specific show was covered by Enrico Bertelli on acoustic drum kit.
