about

Disoriented drunken drones drawn from the work of long dead composers The Brightest Winter Sun is an icy wonder built from longing, fretful wanderings and slowly unfolding endings.
These are works which crawl through changes of textures and lurch into almost non stop repetition of one phrase. Like fragments of sound remembered by a drunk insomniac at the breaking of a new dawn, not knowing where it came from or when or where he or she heard it.

The Brightest Winter Sun Is a collaborative project by Iranian artists Siavash Amini And Umchunga. The focus of the project is reinterpreting the piano compositions of the late 18th century and 19th century composers by depriving these compositions of one their most prominent characteristics namely thematic and tonal development and progression. The track names point to the dates on which the composer who served as the inspiration, died.
