The debut CD of Martyna Kosecka

In Collaboration with Tehran Records,

The debut CD of Polish-Iranian composer and conductor Martyna Kosecka (b. 1989, Gdynia, Poland) exhibits her continuous searching for unheard combination of sounds.

She uses a great variety of styles and techniques in her works: from clearly atonal music to compositions connected with post-spectralism and neo-sonorism. Recently her main goal is searching for new exceptional sound fields in music with help of electronic processing of acoustic instruments.

The album exhibits the artist’s chamber music in live recordings from various concerts and performers.

The debut CD of Idin Samimi Mofakham

In Collaboration with Tehran Records,

The debut CD of Iranian composer Idin Samimi Mofakham (b. 1982, Tehran) , this album contains live recordings of three concerti. The composer’s style exhibits his passion for authenticity, his drive from melodic formations of Persian music, and his soul searching in Eastern European contemporary music.

The three presented works are concerto for solo horn “Rajaz”, a piano concerto “Holography”, and a concerto for chamber ensemble “Ludus Consonous”. These are live recordings of different settings and ensembles, and have taken minimum amount of sound processing. Together they form a triptych pallet, combining a radiant world of sounds and sonority.
