Cozm & Naught
Cozm & Naught is the psychedelic duo conjured from deep within the brain folds of Atlantians Jesse Cegielski and Dariush Mirsajedin. These life-long explorers of their craft are bringing their talent to an untapped facet of electronic music. With backgrounds and influences from a diverse landscape of music genres and artists spanning from electro and death metal all the way to hip-hop and jazz, Cozm & Naught gives light to a groovier, heavier, and thought-provoking side of electronic music. The sometimes alien sounding textures and patterns of Jesse’s guitar style fills the space between Dariush’s blasting rhythms. Both create an other-worldly experience for anyone that stumbles into Cozm & Naught’s psychedelic chasm of sound.
The band’s unusual angle of approach to electronic music lends itself to their versatility and has landed them gigs such as direct support for The Crystal Method at Atlanta’s Variety Playhouse, the rooftop after party for Primus’ Georgia Theatre show in September of 2018, and direct support for EOTO at Terminal West in early 2020. Their sound dives deep into classic psychedelia while also holding the precision and execution of modern electronic music. Cozm & Naught’s live show moves through dynamic lulls and ultimate crescendos creating a vividly dramatic encounter curated just for the audience. Heavy sub-bass with layers of droning synth walls and supernatural melodic phrases permeate their songs and serve to create tension then deliver releases that keep listeners fixated.
