-Tokafi interviews Son of Rose + reviews "All In" | full article

" "Falling Forward" floats both with with yearning grace and bittersweet elegance and "Toward Sensation" is all shimmering texture, like a musical still life of a red-hot corona. "Radii", meanwhile, creates a bewildering sense of tenderness from seemingly disparate and nervously twitching elements. On other cuts, Sadeghi allows in harsher timbres and a certain edginess, even though the surface of his poignant pieces always retains its composure."


-nice review of Son of Rose's "All In" on Italian blog Libero

" Il mare dei computers non si sfalda facilmente. Queste onde propongono battiti lenti che colpiscono, delicatamente, il cervello umano. Le vibrazioni electroniche che fuoriescono da "All In" sono ansiose e delicate. Son Of Rose è lo pseudonimo dietro il quale si cela l'artista Kamran Sadeghi. La sua proposta sonica è salda e tentatrice, in un certo senso questa è la pop music del nuovo millennio. Microsuoni che sfrecciano dentro un sogno lungo una vita. "All In" è, sotto certi aspetti, un sogno libero che si sviluppa all'interno di una grande bolla. Una bolla di sapone che non si vuole staccare dal suo cordone ombelicale. Il sound di questo cd è rarefatto e permette di ammirare aspetti della natura veramente sconosciuti. Un album da memorizzare nella vostra discografia e ricordare negli anni."

ALL IN BY SON OF ROSE

"All In" is the fourth full length CD release by Son of Rose, the recording project of sound and video artist Kamran Sadeghi. A release inspired by the idea of collectivism and the atmosphere that is experienced in a time of change, "All In" has an embracing effect with it's long form structure, subtle yet surprising transitions, and modulating transcendent tone.

Following the 2007 release "Divisions In Parallel", Son Of Rose continues his approach of using real-time digital signal processing combined with various objects interacting with the strings of a piano. Integral to Sadeghi's process is his willingness to locate and explore unconventional sounds from formal and pop music instruments , often times rendering the original source nearly unrecognizable. The "All In" studio sessions rely on live takes in order to capture the holistic immediacy of each composition, keeping post production alterations to a minimum.

The seven tracks on "All In" are comprised of recordings made between 2004 and 2009 and is a limited run of 700 copies. The album art includes a series of vibrant, abstract and geometric photographs by Sadeghi, serving the listener's eyes with sensations similar to what is in store for their ears.

-11.4.o8 // son of rose track "flocksandflocks" on compilation // available now // info

this first compilation features 14 different contributions from artists living all over the world. the idea for the compilation grew out of a deep appreciation for music and the emotional influence it has on us. each artist was approached because of his/her unique sound aesthetic - they were not confined by a central theme or concept. the end result is a collage of sonic landscapes: warm tones, field recordings, drones, textures, digitized and analogue events, and other mysterious occurrences.

db listen comes in a handmade cardboard sleeve designed by starshaped press using antique metal and wood type.
