||The Abbasi Brothers
Yousuf and Amman Abbasi represent a new generation of evocative and epic instrumentalists.
Following in the footsteps of the Eno/Byrne
and Rodelius of the late 70's then wade through the enigma of early-80s
4AD, arriving in the 21st century with a sound that is familiar and yet
all their own. Intensely motivated by the moving image, The Abbasi Brothers
have created a new lexicon of music using digital instruments, electronics,
guitar, piano and found sound. Through dreamlike 'sound-scenes' that celebrate
nostalgia and the gentleness of the mundane in our day-to-day living they
manage to make the ordinary extraordinary. While engulfed in their take
on life-as-film made super-real is so rewarding one doesn't want the simple
moments to ever end.
