Six Pillars Broadcast -Sote Sound

This week Sote, on a flying visit to London from Iran, is in the studio.

Ata ‘Sote’ Ebtekar a composer, sound artist, and recording engineer now based in Tehran, Iran.  Sote uses synthesis and modular electronics to experiment with Iranian music’s tonal systems and rhythmic structures. With aspects of hard techno and sometimes ambient, Sote has been released on Warp and Sub Rosa amongst many others over the pat 2 decades.

Yet despite playing his music since last decade on Six Pillars we’ve never met, hence this was a great chance to hear from producer and performer Sote about his influences and aspirations, prior to both his Boiler Room set (not yet online) and his gig at Cafe Oto.

Discussing first cassettes, composition and performance sets in Iran today, Sote also brought 3 mp3s onto the show from his peer group in Tehran for us to sample: Bescolour, Nima Aghiani and Tarxun.
