On “I’ll Meet You There” the Iranian artist Kamran Arashnia meditates on a poem by Rumi that states, “
“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other” doesn’t make any sense “
This sense of expansiveness – a place that presages any cultural trappings where souls can communicate with naked honesty is personified in Aarashnia’s enveloping drones and ambient passages that create an audio field where all other sound is drowned out. A pure white canvas of softened and stretched movements that bleed into each other. Top shelf drone work here.
