The Long Ear

Abdullah Miniawy and HVAD release the album "Notice a Tiny Scratch for the Blue Behind" on ULLLU as the first release on the newly founded label by HVAD. The album expands on the collaboration first heard on the track "The Dirty Canes Lake" released via Cairo based label IRSH and also featured on the full-length album. In a landscape no doubt inspired by pre Islamic arabia Abdullah Miniawy recalls djinns and illuminates the wreckage of polytheism back in this time. In a theatrical narrative, a new style of writing manifests against the poetry form used in his previous work. A political royal rumble offers the listeners a telepathic experience of a valiant communist figure such as Abu Dhar Al Ghafari (the inventor of Alsalamu Alyukum) and draws an alter ego of the artist. This creates a spiritual guide which evocates several unfamiliar sounds and immersing styles of traditional desert singing in it's finest contemporary form. The album was created in HVAD's studio in Copenhagen during Miniways stay there in 2020. Sharing a vision in seeking towards something ancient, Miniawy's texts and vocal compositions are supported by HVAD's instrumental compositions and production on "Notice a Tiny Scratch for the Blue Behind", providing a sense of liberation from present time that the body doesn't otherwise have access to. Yet the songs never enter a state of nostalgia but remain rooted in transmission of new practices by the two collaborating artists. Parts of the music have been made by recording improvisations on classical Indian instruments and cutting these into lacquer discs, allowing for the material to be worked with as locked grooves and making for a signature compositional method aligning with HVAD's work as a vinyl master cutting engineer.
