Debut EP “Hg” from mHz
We are proud to present our latest release, the debut EP from the incredibly talented mHz. Subtle intricacies and stark beauty make Mohammad Zareei’s “Hg” the perfect soundtrack for our transition into the fall season.
And now, a little about Hg in his own words.
“Although extremely toxic, mercury was traditionally thought of as the First Matter, from which all metals were formed. Yet, exposure to this exotic cold-silver looking liquid metal can cause severe health damages. In this EP, I used mercury as a metaphor for noise: an exotic singularity that can be dangerous, disturbing, and harmful, while being the richest source of all sounds. Pushing the limit to the fine line between harshness and pleasure, “Hg” is an effort to create an amalgam of trifling noises of everyday life, glitches of the machine, and digital oscillations on a persistence pulse. Beat and noise are fused here to make each other more interesting, taming the harshness, while preserving the provocativeness.”
