FORRMNUFORRM: by Firouz FarmanFarmaian








FFFs new experimental-fusion-rock ensemble FORRM  has released its explorative psychedelic debut album 'FORRM NU FORRM' Available on all digital platforms




 


        
                       'NU FORRM
opens with SHIMMER a 17mn sinuous sonic adventure that figures as the the soundscape of his ongoing Venice Biennale installation - giving the tone to a free form experiment overlapping genres and formats. FarmanFarmaian leads the project with a signature vintage sound on electric guitar -  charging the load with tribal riffs and deep ambient distortion seeking connections with the Gnawa of Essaouira and Sub-Saharian desert rock ( A NOMAD PRAYER ) while tripping poetic vocal drops as shamanistic dreamscapes ( HIDING PLACE, JOL ) along spiritual visions ( GATES OF TURAN ) and a personal SPACEY ballad, EMBERS ATONE'




FORRM'S  GATES OF TURAN


             'The source takes were recorded on analog four-track at Finca Le Big Pink in Sotogrande Spain just around xmas 2021 ( the analog feel is there  on the intro - click and 3-4 ) and sent to the Paris studio of old school band-mate drummer-producer Philippe Deshaies ( Trampoline Records ) that elevated the creation with power-psychedilic drums and keyboards takes.

 

FORRM's 'Gates of Turan' featured as  the  soundscape of the Venice Biennale Syncretic KAYAKALAK NFT Panels in its instrumental version before being  finalized at Punta Paloma Studios in Tarifa Spain with freeform poetic vocals based on San Francisco Beat Poet Edward D. Baker's 'Gates of Turan' dedicated text.'

 

The 'Gates of Turan'  FORRM Videoscape is a performative video-essay staged in an empty flat - Athens Greece July 2022




 

Recorded by Spanish Producer Jose Maria Sagrista in the Winter-Spring of 2021-2022 at the Punta Paloma Studios Tarifa Spain, the album features master Tabla - Flute player Axl Narayana, ex-Playground Parisian Producer-Drummer Philippe Deshaies
