**Unveiling the cover art for the “Music for the Black Sine Wave” by Payman Abdali.**
At first, we find it very essential to express the feelings of surprise and wonder that we experienced because of the mass of contribution and number of consultations that we received from different artists for the “music for the Black Sine Wave”.
We believe that Post-Orientalism does not belong to a person or a single artistic current. This is the reason behind our collaboration with ‘Noise à Noise’ label throughout the first year of activity of this community, a label which Soheil Soheili runs and manages, all in a bid to receive works by independent artists, and as a way to embrace pluralism and make interactions. The series that you now know as “Solo for Tar”, “Solo for Qanun”, “Electronic” and “Electroacoustic” instruments are some instances of this mentality, while we have also welcomed different views in the field of Language and Visual identity.
In this community, we believe that there would be no way but to continue accepting pluralism.
We are going to publish different works of “Electroacoustic” music by different composers because of these reasons.

Tehran, Iranian band, BANAFSH have much to say, in such a small package in the memorable “Soul Man of the East.” This new track, from the band’s forthcoming album, A Pledge for Peace, is a simple gesture filled with strong orchestration and a toe-tapping chorus.
Just as John Lennon and Yoko Ono pleaded “Give Peace A Chance” (and Sean Lennon reprised in 1991), BANAFSH takes over the baton. They remind us in the simplest of ways to spread the word about peace: they put it to music.
This English and Persian sung track has strong Middle Eastern strings and keys – the electric guitars fuse nicely with acoustic guitars. The song sounds very measured, it’s like clockwork and predicable but surprisingly airy and flowery in a borderline psychedelic way. It’s only mind-altering in the way that as a listener you are empathetic to their way of life, their plea for peace….
