Noise à Noise 21​.​1 (Noise à Noise, MC/digital)

The label Noise à Noise was founded in Tehran in 2019 to serve as an outlet for the regional electronic and experimental music scene. Number »21.1« of the label's own compilation series is special not only because it is Noise à Noise's first physical release. The collection, released on the occasion of the Persian New Year festival Nouruz, is entirely composed of contributions made by women. Their very different musical backgrounds shine through, but the unifying theme—noise, of course!—can be heard in scratchy solo improvisations for violin, tension-filled synthesiser excursions or the occasional productive deconstruction of the sound signatures of traditional Persian instruments.
