Visiting Grandpa (2014) 15'00"

Visiting Grandpa is a multi-channel soundscape based on my memories of my grandfather. It 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.
I'd like to thank my husband, Kamran Fallah, for the translation of the original text into English; Nika Khanjani, for her powerful narration of the story; and Roya Sepehri, for creating a serene atmosphere by chanting prayers beautifully in Persian.

Fly Toward a Secret Sky is a one-movement composition written for flute and fixed medium.

The fixed medium is created entirly by processing sounds of pre-recorded flute, Santur (Persian dulcimar) and daf (Persian frame drum). Special thanks goes to talented musician and composers Amanda Lowry (flute), Barbod Bayat (Santur) and Ashkan Fahandej (daf) for providing me the recording materials of this composition.
