Following a memorable night in aid of Syrian Refugees in France and beyond, the Volvestre Collective presented no less than 20 Artists from everywhere, who filled the room with warm and generous sound gifts. The public was great and gave plenty (the bar profits went to the cause!) Thanks again to everyone involved in this surprise.
The improvisational piece below is a one-man live composition using nearly 200 tuned strings and a handful of cymbals. A cultural attempt to harmonise east and west, where two Persian santoors tuned in two complementary but different scales. Reflecting both points of a journey through space and time.
A mandolin, a 12 string guitar and two acoustic guitars are used to bridge the scales of the lead santoors into a conversation, add cymbals and ornaments crashes and beats to symbolise the accidents on the path of exile.
A gift to go with the sounds a Persian Sufi poem..
