I don't know if this will ever reach you but I will make it count in case it does
I am a man of the world, and as such I embrace culture and humanity in a lot of different ways. One could say that I'm on a constant journey to learn about the world, but I guess that's something every human should strive for. When it comes to music, my taste travels with me around the globe, and I've always wondered, will there ever be a piece or collection of music that I will halt on, and say; "This is it. I have found my favorite music of all time"
The journey ended when I discovered Calling All Dawns. And I can not thank you enough for making it... the emotional bond I established with your music, is something I would never trade off. The recurring themes, the journeys, the different cultures, all comes together beautifully in this album.
Thank you. I wish this box would allow me to type more characters.
(And my question is; Will Sussan Deyhim come back? I loved her in Hamsafar)
I think we're kindred spirits in some ways! I love travel too, although these days I find it harder and harder to find the time. Thanks for the kind words.
And Sussan Deyhim is magnificent, isn't she? She may come back someday, but unfortunately not on The Drop That Contained the Sea.
Given the nature of your compositions I am sure that somewhere in your process of creation is a fair bit of research. If you are able, would you please share some of the resources you used while composing Sukla-krsne. I am a music teacher in Iowa and I will be teaching a music theory/composition class and was hoping to include a world music portion. Where did you draw inspiration from with Sukla-krysne in particular? Where there any musical bits you took from some traditional source?
Thank you for your time. Always a fan,
