SOTE – Majestic Noise Made in Beautiful Rotten Iran (Sub Rosa, CD/digital)

In addition to very welcome shows of works by Léo Kupper, Frederic Rzewski and Reinhold Weber, »Majestic Noise Made in Beautiful Rotten Iran«, a collection of contemporary pieces by Ata »SOTE« Ebtekar, was released in March through Sub Rosa. His interests in avant-garde electronic music and advanced club music are brought to a perfect synthesis here: even in the loudest, most overwhelming of the eight pieces, there still seems to be a groove pulsating underneath it all.
