Sote with Tarik Barri, Arash Bolouri & Behrouz Pashaei

Austria - Krems

For his project Sacred Horror in Design, Sote – a Tehran-based multitalent between the hardest brand of techno and melodious ambient – collaborates with the AV artist Tarik Barri and the musicians Arash Balouri and Berouz Pashaei. In the pursuit of the “Persian Techno Apocalypse”, the setar and santoor set a lyrical-folklore note, which is pampered by Sote’s laptop electronics and then modified more and more intensely into different variants. Parallel, orientalising floral visuals melt into hyperslick glossy forms that evoke the aesthetic of post-Internet art.
