Sohrab was born in Tehran in 1984. He was 7 when the Iran-Iraq war ended. His name, from an old poem called "Shahname" means "rouge water," which can also mean "blood." He started a punk band with his brother and a friend, which lasted about two years before splitting. Sohrab is totally isolated in Iran, with little or no connection to what is happening there. Sohrab is, like so many, displaced within his own country and occupies a similar internal cultural isolation. This is suggested by Jon Wozencroft's imagery and artwork; looking in through shattered glass with an air of menace underneath the surface. Sohrab used Reason 3, his midi controller (R)evolution UC-16 and a sampler, recorded live through Ambrosia recording software. He also integrates field recordings and spoken word into his soundscapes. Mastered by Denis Blackham. Cut by Jason @ Transition. Photography by Sohrab and Jon Wozencroft.
