Kamelmauz: Glori Selects the Sounds of Kamelmauz

2015 has not been the greatest year for Kamelmauz and his experiments in sound. Two factors have overwhelmed his sonic muse: one, shifting priorities toward challenges in the human sphere, and, two, a very dedicated effort by his alter-ego, Stephen, to finish one hundred visual experiments–fine art–for a virtual show sometime in the next six months.

Everything substantial, such as new complete releases, have been pushed back. However, Duty Free Records has stepped into the breech and pushed back with this new compilation of old music, arranged in tasty medleys, and aimed to bring into sound play the accessible Kamelmauz.

Free until September 1, 2015

What Sussan Deyhim Is Up To

(Film by Eric Minh Swenson) Dawn of the Cold Season refers directly to Forough Farrokhzad’s collections of poems “Let us Believe in the Beginning of the Cold Season” 1974, one of the most discussed books of original writing by an Iranian literary figure. This poem is the poet’s brave admission that she has passed on from the vibrancy, beauty and joy of youth and is inescapably deteriorating into old age.

Sussan Deyhim, the Iranian-American artist (in music, word, and image,) remains vital.

Ancient soul music.
