1 - ALIZADEH, SABA - I MAY NEVER SEE YOU AGAIN - (LP) 
30M


Iranian composer and Kamancheh virtuoso, Saba Alizadeh releases his second album "I May Never See You Again" on the newly founded Hamburg label 30M Records.Born in Tehran in 1983 to world-renowned tar and setar virtuoso and composer Hossein Alizadeh, Saba Alizadeh studied the Iranian Kamancheh - an ancient Persian violin - becoming one of the foremost players of the instrument of this day. Alizadeh later studied experimental sound art with Mark Trayle at the California Institute of the Arts and inspired by the conceptual approaches taught there, started composing music that deconstructs and abstracts Iranian traditions and scales into a new musical language and style.Influenced by Iranian harmonics, musique concrete and sophisticated, forward-looking beat science, Saba Alizadehs "I May Never See You Again" represent an incredibly exciting act of mutual inspiration - when Iranian scales and Western electroacoustic understanding powerfully unite.The nine predominantly instrumental tracks on the album fuse tradition and innovation inspiring meditations on the subject of memory. On the one hand, the credibility and resilience of ones own memory is musically dissected, whilst on the other hand, Saba Alizadeh proceeds conceptually, deploying erstwhile dictators speeches in his music as a means to question the course of history."I May Never See You Again" also features handpicked collaborations with musician Andreas Spechtl and electroacoustic sound artist Rojin Sharafi. Spechtl, singer of the band Ja, Panik, found fame in the German-speaking world primarily thanks to his song lyrics, in which he deconstructs words in a similarly abstract way as Saba Alizadeh does the music.Spechtl joins Alizadeh on two tracks for the album, while Vienna-based Iranian Sharafi joins on one.

2 - DARVISHI, AFTAB - A THOUSAND BUTTERFLIES - (CD) 
30M


Composer Aftab Darvishi was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1987, to a musical family. She began playing the violin at the age of five, later switching to classical piano. She also learned several traditional Persian instruments including the kamancheh and setaar, in part thanks to the influence of her father, the renowned composer and music scholar Mohammad-Reza Darvishi.After studying piano at the University of Tehran, she moved to the Netherlands, studying composition for film in Amsterdam and contemporary composition in The Hague. She is currently studying for a PhD in composition at the University of Birmingham, and is a regular guest lecturer at the University of Tehran.Darvishis music combines aspects of her Western training with the deep influence of Persian music - sometimes through the use of traditional instruments, structures, modes or harmonies - reflecting a rich multiplicity of influences.She has written music for film, theatre, dance and concerts, and especially relishes multidisciplinary projects. Her work has been heard around the world. She has worked with ensembles including BBC Singers, Kronos Quartet, Orkest de Ereprijs, Helsinki Chamber Choir, Latvian Radio Choir, Riccioti Ensemble and Oerknal.Darvishi was the first non-European female winner of the Tenso Young Composers Award in 2016 for her a cappella choral piece And the world stopped, lacking you. In 2017 she was commissioned to write a piece for the Kronos Quartets "50 for the Future" project. Since then she has collaborated frequently with the ensemble.A portrait album that looks back on Darvishis 11-year journey as a composer, A Thousand Butterflies evokes a life that has crossed continents. It spans a range of styles and includes work for a variety of instrumental forces as well as electronics."When I compose, I dont think about style," Darvishi says. "Its not that logical, its not with a lot of calculation. Its more by instinct."My music is not only Persian music - its bigger than that. Its an approach to being."The album begins with Sahar (Dawn), the most recent work of Darvishis on the album. It is named after a mode from the Kermanshah region that is traditionally played at dawn to wake people up, and is written for a cello using traditional Persian techniques. This piece will be released as the albums lead single.After Hidden Dream, a piece for saxophone quartet that was recorded live at a concert in Stockholm, comes the title track, A Thousand Butterflies. For clarinet and piano, the piece is inspired by experiences of immigration. Each of its three movements looks at immigration from a different perspective, charting the diversity of the immigrant experience and the range of emotions that immigrants feel.Forgetfulness is the earliest composition on the album and was recorded in Tehran. The albums final track is Plutone, an atmospheric, 15-minute work for four instruments and electronics.

3 - KHAYAM, HOOSHYAR/BAMDAD AFSHAR - RAAZ - (CD) 
30M


Tehran based Hooshar Khayam and Bamdad Afshar have joined together in a pioneering project to embed lines of traditional tunes from Baluchistan in their musical journey. They believe that "Iranian folk music has the potential to feature directly in various genres of contemporary music."Khayam and Afshar have developed a creative way to include Baluchi tunes and modal structures in contemporary classical music. Bamdad Afshar, already known for his unique electronic music compositions and his output for cinema and theatre, teamed up with classical trained Khayam to create a new electronic rendition of Baluchi rhythms, augmented by a string quartet and piano recordings of Khayam, plus vocal recordings of three Baluchi singers (two male, one female). The result is a mesmerizing album which draws on a mixed medium of sounds with a full spectrum of colouristic effects, previously unheard or unimagined. BackgroundOver the last 50 years, Iranian ethnomusicologists, musicians and enthusiasts have recorded Iranian folk music and documented the culture which surrounds it. Mohammad Taghi Masoudieh, Fouzieh Majd and Hormuz Farhat are pioneers who have carried out significant research into the folk music of Iran. These musicians had a specific focus on Baluchistan music in terms of recording for the purposes of documentation, yet barely focussed on any direct form of composition based on such recordings. This applies to two of the most important ethnomusicologists of Irans music: Bruno Nettl (b. 1930, Czechoslovakia) and Jean During (b.1947, France) both of whom contributed outstanding work in the field of Irans provincial music.The second generation of Iranian ethnomusicologists continued along the same path. They also recorded Iranian folk music, providing musical notation and documenting rituals and ceremonies.Despite all attempts to preserve folk musical traditions and to save time-honoured rituals and ceremonies from being lost, they have largely remained undiscovered by the professional folk music audience. Even some Iranian critics and musicians are not fully conversant with the distinctions between Indian music, Pakistani music, and Baluchi music. Untouched heritageUnlike folk music from other regions of Iran, the music of Baluchistan has hardly ever been used by Iranian composers of classical or traditional music. This music may have provided inner inspiration to Iranian musicians, but even for composers such as Fouzieh Majd and Mohammad-Reza Darvishi, who have studied and investigated music of Baluchistan for years, this branch of Iranian folk music has no direct presence in their body of work
