Music for Black Sine Wave
On July 2023, Ehsan Saboohi, Composer and the Post-Orientalism music theorist published his theory revolving the significance of the bass line in the methodology of Post-Orientalism music, by releasing his twenty-four pieces of bass compositions for a sine wave on Noise à Noise. Sounds were released without any further processing of the sounds.

By doing so, Saboohi invited his colleagues from across the disciplines of art (Music, Painting, Cinema and Literature) through a number of open-calls and friendly invitations, an invitation which was about adding to or making with a free development of the pieces from his solo-bass album.

About this album
seven tones have been selected based on persian Dastgah named segah. these seven notes are the first group that had the most number of notes suitable for the segah: B, A, D+, F#, E, G+, C#
each piece composed for each note. and it is a dialogue with the same note from Ehsan Saboohi's Album ,the main note or base note is the one that is used the most. or all frequencies are moving around that note and the composition for all seven pieces is in a circle, so that this dialogue never ends. the circle means that if you play the files in opposite order or reverse the files and listen to it. it feels almost the same.

technical part:
all of the composition done in csound languase. and the score written in pandas library and drawsvg library in python
