Hadi Bastani and Maryam Sirvan – trans​.​placed

It’s wonderful to hear one of my favorite sound designers, Maryam Sirvan come up with new material.  She is paired with fellow expatriate Hadi Bastani in this 20-minute mini-LP of electroacoustics and field recordings.  From the release’s Bandcamp site:

“Stretching from Berlin to Tbilisi, trans.placed starts with the simple act of opening a door. This everyday gesture forms the fabric of this dense, meticulous and profound work which obsesses over the dramatic sonic transitions which occur when we move from outside to indoors. What sounds come with us as we make this transition? What new soundscapes do we encounter? And what sounds fade away as we move through different spaces? These are the questions trans.placed with its carefully crafted sonic trajectories asks us to meditate on. Built from soundwalks, field recordings and electronics trans.placed is the first collaboration between Iranian composers Hadi Bastani and Maryam Sirvan.”
