Vincent Moon & Mohammad Reza Mortazavi - Artefact Sound 23

Audivisual collaborations between Iranian percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi and nomadic filmmaker Vincent Moon.

Artefact Sound presents the premiere of the collaboration between DIY filmmaker Vincent Moon and percussionist Mohammad Reza Mortazavi. As a true 'sound traveler', French artist Vincent Moon has been traveling all around the world to make films of musical folklore, shamanistic rituals and unique site-specific sounds. The mixes the videos live into an audiovisual dj-set ('live cinema'). For this residency he joins forces with Iran-born, Berlin-based percussion virtuoso Mohammad Reza Mortazavi. His virtuoso fingering on tombak and daf, two traditional Persian hand drums, is second to none. Amplified by a sound system he brings enchanting rhythms that take you on an ecstatic trip.
