Description

Sussan Deyhim | Richard Horowitz - Desert Equations: Azax Attra

Electro-Persian excursion by ethno-techno duo consisting of Iranian vocalist Sussan Deyhim and US electronic music composer Richard Horowitz. A groundbreaking album, dominated by Sussan Deyhim’s sublime voice surging from behind virtual dunes and electronic oases, which prompted writer Paul Bowles to wonder: "Was this composed under the influence of Majoun ?"... and which convinced filmmaker Bernardo Bertolucci to entrust most of the soundtrack music for his “Sheltering Sky” movie to Richard Horowitz. Since “Desert Equations”, Sussan Deyhim has worked with the likes of Peter Gabriel, Bill Laswell, Jah Wobble, Bobby McFerrin, Adrian Sherwood and Ornette Coleman. She has released the acclaimed “Madman Of God” (Crammed, 2000) an album based on classic Persian Sufi poetry.

Reviews

“Perhaps you could call it techno-ethno pop, or world beat... a hi-tech confluence of muezzin scales, micro-tonal music and ceremonial choreography. (Melody Maker, UK, ‘89)

“Haunting, always compelling, Desert Equations is proof that ethnic musical skills and new technology can collide harmoniously. (Music Technology, UK, 1988)
