Shiva Feshareki is a British-Iranian experimental composer and turntabist, noted for solo efforts, as well as her work alongside classical orchestras. Her only full-length to date, New Forms, issued by Resist back in 2019, makes her contribution to the MMXX series, Nebula, a much-needed expansion of her available works.
Deploying the turntable with a stunningly skilled hand, Nebula is a work of orchestral scale made from the most minimal means. Merging a vast number of heavily manipulated sound-sources - intertwined within moody ambiences and increasingly forced into states of abstraction and raw general materiality by Feshareki’s interventions - Nebula pushes the art-form into a space that has rarely been heard, straying far from the territories established by artists like Christian Marclay, Otomo Yoshihide, and Maria Chavez. A striking sophomore release that leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering what Feshareki will deliver next.
Matière Mémoire presents the MMXX Series. In anticipation of the year 2020, Matière Mémoire asked 20 great artists to create an original 20 minutes piece and an artwork. Throughout this year, each quarter will see the release of 5 new vinyls, available individually or as a bundle. Each record is limited at 500 copies and comes as a crystal clear vinyl featuring an original track of 20 minutes on one side, and a laser engraved artwork on the other. Each contained in a transparent sleeve printed with the MMXX logo, and each coming with a print of the artist artwork.
