Six Pillars put out an open call to Iranians living in the Middle East, North African and South Asia for an immersive two week residency in the UK. From hundreds of applicants five emerging experimental musicians and artists were selected for the residency. In collaboration with Southbank Centre, Europe's largest performing arts venue, London College of Communication, the only Sound Art Department in the University of London, and Resonance104.4FM - UK's art-music radio station, Six Pillars created a two week residency that involved intense workshops on everything from releasing music online to creating visuals in Max for musicians.
The residency was part-tutored by the legendary Keith Rowe, who is "to guitar what Pollock was to the canvas" from the avant garde band AMM, and culminated in a collaborative performance at Southbank Centre with the MA sound-art students of LCC.
