New Album Where East and West Meet
The story of the project
Since resettling in Australia I no longer have access to some of the necessary equipment to make quality music. By running this campaign I’m hoping to open ears to my music and be able to create an album in English that will blend Eastern sounds with Western. As you can hear in the link below I have combined Persian Sufi music with a Western Rock style in one of my songs (Fire of Love) appealing to a wide audience and now I’m hoping to produce such songs influenced by ancient Persian poetry in English. I have also created Persian electronic rock style music with melodic acoustic guitar sounds.
The album contains 8 tracks all recorded and produced in Iran with the help of more than 15 of the best musicians.
I would like to share my music with an English speaking audience. Please help me make this possible by purchasing my album and helping me to fund my vision.
This love has lit a fire inside me
A fire that has burned every way of knowing and all my core beliefs
There’s no word or phrase capable of describing it
So it’s better for them to put it all aside and not talk or write about it
Those who find the way to true love
Need have no fear of the dark corners on the road of life
All my words and every breath I take,
Gives a message and sings of you my love
Like a harp that can only sing of music
But not everyone can understand the secrets behind my song
Those of you in power
Let me in your ivory tower
Tonight I have lost my way home
It’s not long till dawn breaks
Then I’ll be gone, to where I belong
During my time
I have tasted the sweetness and bitterness of life
I learned all the secrets of this very long journey over one night
And now I am telling you that
Love guides the ones who feel the real meaning of it
To complete in one night
The journey of truth which others take
Years to achieve
How the funds will be used
The funds raised through your generosity will be used for:
1. Recording (studio fees)
2. Musicians Fees
5. Production Fee
All the above will account for about $8000.
Some of my other work
In 2013 Omid worked with “Andrew Griffiths” the aerial photographer of “Lensaloft Aerial Photography” on a 3D panoramic shot titled “Southbank by Twilight”. You can enjoy the amazing collaboration of music and photography at the link below.
I have been meticulously planning this project for a long time now and with your help I am hoping to cover some of the many costs and get back to the studio to complete this project.
