Echoes Playlist
Serart is an unlikely combination of Serj Tankian, lead singer of nu-metal group, System of a Down and Armenian-Turkish multi-instrumentalist and singer Arto Tunçboyaciyan. Arto has played with Night Ark, Al DiMeola and new age pioneer Paul Winter. He sings in an imaginary supralingua dialect and is as likely to beat on your trash can as play the many exotic Middle Eastern stringed and percussion instruments he has at his command. Tankian places those sounds in a fractured mix of electronica jungle grooves, eclectic samples, metal guitar stabs and shattered rhythm structures. The two artists talk about the joyfully chaotic mosaic on their self-titled debut (Serjical Strike/Columbia Records).
