After an open call to Iranians living in the Middle East, North African and South Asia – five emerging experimental musicians and artists were selected for a two week residency in the UK. In collaboration with Southbank Centre (Europe’s largest performing arts venue), London College of Communication (the only Sound Art Department in the University of London), and Resonance104.4FM – UK’s art-music radio station, Six Pillars created a two weeks residency that involved, intense workshops on everything from releasing music to creating visuals and social media for musicians.

The residency was part-tutored by the legendary Keith Rowe, who is “to guitar what Pollock was to the canvas” of the avant-garde band AMM, and culminated in a performance at Southbank Centre with the MA sound-art students of LCC. For more info check out #IranUKSonics on social media
