As a solo artist, Sathönay departs from what we know of the group, for a more synthetic, more sophisticated music. Alone with his saz (a kind of large Turkish lute that he amplifies), a mini rhythm box and a pocket amp, Sathönay regenerates sounds and melodies that are geographically well situated (Turkey, the Balkans, the East). The (stunted) tracks flourish in an almost industrial, rough register, with a very serious penchant for strident sounds and patterns bordering on hypnosis. Sathönay takes part in this great new beginning of traditional music… or directly of the music of all times; that of exchange, of a spatial ode, of light. His latest release on the Zamzamrec label is the shape of the sun… but not on record, on tape!
