AMIR – “DEPTHS”

Amir is a young, multi-disciplinary artist from Lebanon whose contributions to photography, music and computer engineering are still being developed and honed. However, if “Depths” is any indication of where Amir is heading this multi-hyphenate has a remarkable ear and understanding of composition. Sustained drones are stretched and manipulated until they meet with swirling arpeggios and complex, glitchy percussive patterns that recall IDM’s most fertile period. Squarepusher and Autechre come to mind as natural forefathers of Amir’s sound but we also hear elements of pop leanings of Telefon Tel Aviv and Christian Loeffler’s organic percussion. Truly engaging work from this up and coming artist.
