Boomkat Product Review:
Necessary vinyl edition of Kaziwa, Porya Hatami & Arovane’s sublime 2nd release together. Preceding their more probing, abstract scientific approach o last year’s Organism, this delicate suite of processed piano phrases finds the pairing at their most sensitive and modest, trading poetic instrumental gestures in a mellow dialogue of wistfully melodic strokes and amorphous electronics.
The signature, filigree piano work of Iranian composer, Hatami’s earlier works takes centre stage, subtly contrasting with Uwe Zahn a.k.a. Arovane’s responses, made on Native Instruments’ new Una Corda virtual synth. Well trained ears should;d probably be abel to tell the difference between the “real” and the synthesised tones, but it’s better to let your ears drift between their fidelities and swelling gauze. Soon enough those golden shimmers and dusty figures will draw you right into a lushly somnambulant state, like falling half asleep to a vintage flick.
