One simple story Just happened today let me tell you about it A man of honour He decided he refuses to pay He’s leaving behind him All his glory and fame She’s pulling the right strings Now he has to obey Now he must obey You have the right to remain silent Everything you say or do will be used against you You have the right to remain violent Everything you say or do will be used against you Pointing fingers They’re back all around With smiley figures They just can’t make a sound They just can’t hear a sound You swear to tell the truth brother Oh well now what do you say ريحتك طالعه من بعيد كتير يا شيخ You smell betrayal You have the right to remain silent Everything you say or do will be used against you You have the right to remain violent Everything you say or do will be used against you

about

Gurumiran, a.k.a. Miran Gurunian, is an audiophile, DJ, audio engineer, guitarist, lyricist, music producer and songwriter based in Beirut, Lebanon.  

Recorded in 2015, Aberrance is his first solo album and—born out of a desire for new beginnings—signals a departure from Gurumiran’s usual tendencies and musical path.

Inspired by both Berlin and Beirut, as well as a search for anonymity and a return to roots, it explores fresh sonic possibilities, combining a variety of musical styles such as jazz guitar with electronic overtones reminiscent of pioneers like Depeche Mode, New Order and Thom Yorke.

The many decisions that were made in and for Aberrance—sometimes spontaneously—are all pretty much against the current of how Gurumiran has previously done things, hence the name of the album. From his choices of writing and recording, to the musicians that he worked with. He departed from his usual creative environment, consisting of immersing with his band, and focused on initiating the writing by using a single guitar line combined with an electronic effect, ultimately shaping the diverse electro-acoustical soundscapes of the album.
