ODG105 : Arash Azadi / Mathematical Labyrinth

ODG105 : Arash Azadi / Mathematical Labyrinth

Arash Azadi is a young Iranian composer based in Yerevan, a multidisciplinary artist and art director whose works are influenced by creative technologies. 

Born in Hamedan, Iran, 1994, Azadi began studying classical Persian setar at the age of nine. In 2012, he enrolled in Armenia’s Yerevan State Conservatory, where he majored in composition and began mastering the ins and outs of the visual programming language Max/MSP through an online course offered by the Massachusetts College of Art. 

His most recent works fall under the umbrella of electroacoustic and experimental music and are often accompanied by audio-visual effects, performance art or improvised dance and theatre. With a background in maths and computer sciences, Azadi has also explored ways to combine modern approaches to sound with acoustic and folk music. To date, his works have been performed in France, Italy, Germany, and Greece in addition to his native and temporary homelands of Iran and Armenia.

His new album 'Mathematical Labyrinth' is a mix of long electroacoustic patterns moving slowly in a mathematical kind of journey or minimal techno noise electronics mixed with folk samplers. Almost 40 minutes that will give you another vision of the inner world of another dimension. 

You can find more about his work and his way to compose  in this excellent interview .
And a very nice video of a live improvisation:
