FORRM NU FORRM
DIGITAL & 12´ Available ON BANDCAMP
FORRM originally released its explorative psychedelic rock debut album FORRM NU FORRM in July 2022 on the occasion of the artists participation at the 59th Biennale di Venezia. Bandcamp release arrives Summer 2023.
Album opens with a 17mn monumental sinuous sonic adventure setting the tone ( SHIMMER ) as FarmanFarmaian leads on electric guitar placing tribal riffs and deep atmospheric distorted soundscapes threading creative conversations with Axl Narayana's hypnotic Tabla sequences and escapades on his Persian Oud flute.
FOORM NU FORRM actively seeks connections to Gnawa trance and Sub-Saharian desert rock ( SHIMMER / A NOMAD PRAYER ) while extemporizing poetic shamanistic dreamscapes ( A HIDING PLACE / EMBERS ATONE ) and prophetic progrock visions ( GATES OF TURAN ).
Produced by Firouz FarmanFarmaian in collaboration with Spanish psychedelic rock Producer Jose Maria Sagrista in the Winter-Spring of 2021-2022 at Punta Paloma Studios Tarifa Spain the album features German master Tabla - Flute player Axl Narayana and French Producer-Drummer, Philippe Deshaies.
