Siavash Amini (Tehran-based musician) returns to Umor Rex with a collaboration with Matt Finney. Like in Till human voices wake us (Umor Rex 2014), where poems by T.S. Eliot were the starting point for the compositions, in Familial Rot each track tries to capture the emotion inside the words of Matt, and to score the images created with those vocal elements. With spontaneous words springing from an improvisational exercise. Siavash Amini expands the scope of the words with refined ambient and drone introspection. Even if the opulent sonic textures and the neo-classic suggestions signature of Amini’s work are here, it is all rather different this time around. There is a larger focus on catharsis, and greater doses of distortion, than in his previous works. Familial Rot is intense and affective. The sounds are made with electric double bass, electric guitar, piano and digital process.
