»Sonic Healing« is Martin Steer’s third full-length release under the Bad Stream moniker. Bringing together twelve different artists from the extended network of his label, »Sonic Healing« is both a deeply intimate record and a collaborative effort that tries to imagine and propose new forms of community and collectivity.
Akbari has contributed abstract yet tangible animations to accompany both the single "V" « featuring Kai Mader and Hanno Stick, and the whole album. With generative algorithms and real-time image processing, Arash Akbari created a bird’s eye view to construct a narrative of the always shifting behaviours in nature which define our perception of beauty, hope, fear, harmony, chaos, and ourselves as a species and a society. It is an impressionistic and poetic approach that adds another dimension to a work which brings together the personal with the global, merging individual voices through the synergies sparked by a new form of collaboration - an album that confronts sensory overload with outstanding artistic ambitions.
