Watch a video from Razgraad's The Water Towers, out now on Yerevan Tapes.

Razgraad’s The Water Towers is the most recent release from the Italian label Yerevan Tapes. Razgraad also happens to be the brand new solo project of Bologna based artist Salvatore Miele. This, his debut release as Razgraad, “investigates cyclicity, drones and rhythmic pulses“, states the Yerevan label, “declining the sounds of the industrial landscape through the transformation of field recordings and the use of synthesizers, in an archetypal, ritual dimension”.

The “Onyeocha” video shown here was made by Swiss visual artist Andrea Masciadri, and features 1990s footage shot by Swiss film director Peter Liechti.

The Water Towers is released in an edition of 100 white cassettes by Yerevan Tapes.
