The city is alive with whispers and its movement is blurred and feverish. A soothing and evocative urban sound, comprising images of the purposefulness and anonymity of life and machines in this vast oppidan. The sound of beings rushing past in the street, blurred faces, urgent whispers, warnings? Abandoned buildings stand stoic, guarding their stories with a cautionary glare. An old swing in a forgotten playground sways in the wind, shadows lengthening as this urban sprawl settles with the fading daylight.

The sound of ritual gongs in the city’s temple echo through the dusk, winding down ancient tunnels, punctuated by radio waves and the ebb of wary modernity. Ambiance and rhythm seep through this interurban soundscape, haunting and beautiful, calibrating the subconscious and aligning the soul. Complex and intricate beats blend with textural tones, signed by distant voices and enticing melodies to create this serendipitous world where responsibilities are disregarded and time is seemingly infinite. A glimpse at what lies beneath the ordinary.

Idlefon - Intensive Collectivity Known As City (2014) Video upload authorized by Paul Nielsen (Tympanik Audio) Purchase at http://tympanikaudio.bandcamp.com/album/intensive-collectivity-known-as-city Released 17 June 2014 Idlefon is Hesam Ohadi, a computer musician and sound artist based in Tehran, Iran. He gravitated toward creating electronic music in 2006 after experimenting with various styles of rock and metal music as a drummer. Hesam created a soundtrack for Arash Radkia's animated short film 'The Radiologist's Room' in 2009 and released a track on 'Ear 5', a compilation CD on Mahriz Records. The connection with Mahriz Records led to a split album in 2010 titled 'Spotty Surfaces' which featured fellow electronic musicians Siavash Amini and Nima Pourkarimi aka Umchunga. In addition to his solo project Idlefon, Hesam is also a member of the post-rock/ electronica band Photomat. Idlefon's music is mainly associated with the broad spectrum of IDM, ambient, and glitch styles. Inspired by the international experimental electronic music scene, Idlefon tends to make music which is relevant and in harmony with the urban life in his hometown of Tehran. In 2014, Idlefon found his way to Tympanik's doorstep to present his debut full-length album 'Intensive Collectivity Known As City'. A haunting yet beautiful collection of soundscapes and ambiance, this collection of sounds ebb and flow like a gentle tide, calibrating the subconscious and aligning the soul. Complex and intricate beats blend with ambient textural sounds, signed by distant voices and enticing melodies to create a wondrous world where responsibilities are disregarded and time is infinite. https://www.facebook.com/idlefon
