This beautiful double album release is an elaborate 8 panel 2 CD package of my scores and sound design for acclaimed Iranian filmmaker & visual artist icon Shirin Neshat, in the largest retrospective to date at The Broad Museum and of Shirin's works.
The package includes breathtaking images from each installation I have worked on including "Turbulent" the winner of The Golden Lion at The Venice Biennial, in which I also performed. The package will also include an album of my sound track for a Shirin and brilliant team's large scale stage production of #Logic of the Birds. The music is composed in collaboration with Richard Horowitz and inspired by the Persian mystic poet Attar's Conference of The Birds. It was an honor to star in this production as Simorgh.
Here's an excerpt from Logic of the Birds, a Media Stage Production, a collaboration with Shirin Neshat, Shoja Azari, Ghasem Ebrahimian and Shahram Karimi.
