The „9T Antiope“ duo, currently based in Paris, consists of Iranian musicians „Nima Aghiani“ and „Sara Bigdeli Shamloo“. The main focus of the band is on experimental music, using layers of acoustic instruments, electronics and combining them with vocals and lyrics, in order to narrate tiny bits or huge landscapes of the chaotic worlds they vision, along with their inhabitants. The duo also works in the different theatre, film and performance projects, for which they do sound design and composition.

„Placebo“ is the third and final part of the trilogy „Isthmus:Nocebo:Placebo“ and is meant to be taken in two doses: Danse Macabre (Dose I) and Memento Mori (Dose II). The piece explores the abyss of the mass crave for an ultimate cure for all suffering, the perils of the pursuit of happiness through mere optimism, deception, false promises, sugar pills, and eventually the allurement of death itself; Placebo is a Memento Mori.

The music of 9T Antiope is capable of magically transforming dark matter into a bright explosion of stars and suns. Or like the famous US music journalist  Philip Sherburne put it once: „Whatever it might mean, it is absolutely gripping, immersive and surrealistic, cinema without sight.“
