SET x CTM – Contemporary Electronic Music from Iran

Part of the Festival "CTM 2017 – Fear Anger Love"

CTM Festival teams up with the Tehran-based SET Festival to present works at the forefront of the Iranian experimental electronic music scene. In a new commission, Ata 'Sote' Ebtekar will collaborate with celebrated audiovisual composer Tarik Barri and performers Arash Bolouri and Behrouz Pashaei on a project merging electronics with traditional acoustic instruments for a "Persian techno apocalypse." Two additional acts, Siavash Amini and 9T Antiope, will likewise help to represent a nascent culture of sonic experimentation burgeoning in Tehran. This recent upsurge of creative activity is broadly a result of Iranian citizens’ ingenuity and resourcefulness in making the most of the piecemeal reform occurring over the past several years alongside internet-based research and grassroots artistic exertions.
