New Ambient: Porya Hatyami & Arovane – Vaun

The first thing that came to my mind when I heard this track was the collab between Alva Noto and Ryuchi Sakamoto. It recalls the noisy glitches followed by a slow and mellow piano composition. The track Vaun is also a collaboration among a German producer and a piano composer, this time between Arovane (Uwe Zahn) and Iranian Porya Hatyama. Vaun is being released in vinyl as a LP called Kaziwa that can be pre-ordered in n5MD website’s.

Another similarity with Alva Noto and Ryuchi Sakamoto’s collaborations is that both artists have been already working on other full-length albums before, being Kaziwa their third collaboration. The difference is especially in the sound design, while Alva Noto and Sakamoto have composed very minimalistic piano samples with glitch, the collab between Porya Hatyami & Arovane is more focused on a atmospheric and ambient tunes, deep and dark. Way more involving. It is possible to feel white noises on the background that sound like rain field recording.
