Iran’s Arash Akbari’s Vanishing Point nestles into inbetween places, revelling in the indistinct, the delicate and the mysterious. Bringing together field recordings taken from northern Iran, guitar and electronics, this is a late night album, an album which soothes, a set of sounds to think to. This is an album which lingers in the margins of consciousness, it conjures images gently, caresses them and ever so slowly lets them fade from view.

With last year’s heralded Cracked Echoes on the excellent French label Soft Akbari established himself as an emerging talent within the ambient scene. With Vanishing Points he cements his reputation as one of the genre’s most exciting new talents.


"This is a magnificent record, one which will without a doubt capture your heart, and very likely end up on your rotation for many months to come, certainly appearing on the year’s very best. “Rays From A Dead Star” alone captures the ever lasting feeling of floating through the ether, limitless and present with it all. I am happy to welcome Akbari into my collection of timeless music, and I hope you will as well." HEADPHONE COMMUTE

"Every expression Akbari paints into his sound is deliberate, everything is perfectly weighted and measured to keep the flow of the album moving nicely to maintain that level of important emotional suspension throughout." HEAR FEEL

"...assis dans une cathédrale ébranlée où les colonnes et les contre-forts soutiennent la voûte céleste, notre seul souhait est maintenant de transcender l'espace et le temps comme les précédents occupants l'ont fait, et de les rejoindre dans leur dimension."

"La beauté de gouttes d'eau tombant au sol au moyen de fields recordings discrets et ses drones comme autant de caresses de sons parasites et de réminiscences visuelles." CLAIR & OBSCUR
