KLANGTEPPICH: Nazanin Noori and Haleh Redjaian, “Wired”, 24 June 2022, 6:30 PM
Nazanin Noori and Haleh Redjaian present an artist talk on "Wired", the performance they premiered at "Klangteppich. Festival for music of the Iranian diaspora" in early June together with the electronic musician Farahnaz Hatam, the santur player Azin Zahedi and the bass clarinetist Shabnam Parvaresh.
The project deals with the technical peculiarities of telegraphy in the relationship between sound, space, and musical communication, with its significance in geopolitical power struggles of European powers in Iran during the 19th century and as an instrument for organizing civil disobedience. Visual artist Haleh Redjaian works with threads in her geometric artworks, creating the spatial installation in which the musicians interact. The ensemble awakens buried perceptions of telegraphy as noise music, recalling the evolution of electronic music from communications technology.
Nazanin Noori is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Berlin. Her work includes sound art, installation, direction for theater and radio plays, and text.
Haleh Redjaian is a visual artist. She studied art history at the Goethe University in Frankfurt and continued her studies in drawing and printmaking and then in sculpture at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
The event is a collaboration with Klangteppich. Festival for music of the Iranian diaspora.
