Radiophrenia Glasgow 2019

Glasgow, Scotland

Visiting Grandpa, a multi-channel soundscape based on my memories of my grandfather, will be broadcast live on Radiophrenia from Glasgow’s Centre for Contemporary Arts. Radiophrenia is a temporary art radio station in Glasgow, Scotland – a two-week exploration into current trends in sound and transmission arts.

Visiting Grandpa was written when I learned that the Iranian revolutionary guard demolished the historic cemetery of Baha'is in Shiraz (Iran), where my grandfather's remain, as well as many other Baha'is', were buried.

Dawn: Celebrating the Oneness of Humankind

Toronto Center for the Arts, Lyric Theatre

I am leading a collaborative concert project dedicated to the bicentenary of the birth of The Báb.
A portion of the concert program will arise from a current call for scores open to all composers around the world to write a composition inspired by the theme of "celebration of the oneness of humankind". Up to four compositions will be selected by a jury panel of professional composers and performers.

In addition to the selected works, there will be compositions by Christos Hatzis, Norbert Palej, Rebekah Cummings and I in the program.
