London-based label Injazero Records — an imprint devoted to contemporary classical and electronic music — have unleashed the second single taken from the forthcoming album ‘Ijād ایجاد‘ by Iranian musician Tegh, the first in a series of collaborations between the Tehran-based artist and classical musicians.
Tegh first appeared on our radar in 2021 with a stirring remix on Max Brubaker and Max Cooper’s ‘Glassform Versions‘ alongside Laurel Halo. With a background in classical music, Tegh’s sound ventures into the between spaces of contemporary classical and modern electronic, inflected with his heritage as an Iranian musician.
‘Ijād ایجاد’ marries Tegh’s modernist vision of contemporary ambient classical hybrids with Adel Poursamadi, a respected violinist also based in the Iranian Capital. Together, the pair use Poursamadi’s wealth of experience with string instruments and Tegh’s thorough grasp of emotive experimental electronics to investigate themes of futurist forms of human expression with grand and cinematic sound.
The album’s second single ‘Bad بدع’, released on Monday 27 June, rolls over a tripartite 10-minute odyssey of sound encompassing vast depths and searing, emotional highs, hurling the listener between states of emotion.
‘Ijād ایجاد’ is scheduled for release 22 July via Injazero. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
