System Of A Down’s Serj Tankian Releases Updated “Disarming Time” Video Featuring His Poetry


System Of A Down frontman Serj Tankian has shared an animated video created by David Bradford for an updated version of his recent modern piano concerto “Disarming Time“. The track has been updated with poetry from his 2001 poetry book ‘Cool Gardens‘, and will appear on the new audio version of that book, which mixes Tankian‘s own music with his readings of his poems.

Dubbed the ‘Cool Gardens Poetry Suite‘, the set will be out tomorrow, July 09th on leading digital service providers. Tankian said of the release, “‘Cool Gardens Poetry Suite‘ animates the book to where the words come off the page and dance into the auditory canals of listeners sweetened by intimate musical landscapes.”

Next up from Tankian will be “Cinematique” on August 06th. That 25 composition set will be split into two parts: “Illuminate“, which will delve into classically oriented pieces, and “Violent Violins“, which will focus on more modern fare. Following that later this year will be the soundtracks to his own 2020 documentary ‘Truth To Power‘ and the 2019 film on Armenian politician Nikol Pashinyan and the 2018 Armenian revolution ‘I Am Not Alone‘.
