AWIL 135 - Peyman Heydarian

 Persian multi-instrumentalist composer and music scientist, Peyman Heydarian on this A World in London! Click: Peyman Heydarian is one of our most prolific London based music artists, with a multitude of skills at levels of accomplishment that are simply eye-watering. He frequently collaborates with other gifted contemporaries in an endless search for new cross-cultural hook ups,  and on this AWIL his companions were vocal architect Anastasia SD Glover and nyckelharpa specialist Lucie Treacher. Luscious timbres and genres were mixed and blended in a Persian, Kurdish, Celtic concoction, channelled through Peyman’s beautiful compositions. Playing 8 instruments is just one piece of the large jigsaw puzzle that makes up Peyman Heydarian because when he’s not juggling santurs and dafs - with virtuosity - he’s creating new digital apps that will excite fellow musicians everywhere. As a music scientist, Peyman’s latest invention will enable any midi instrument to plug into a bank of Persian and maqam-based music scales, thus bringing  continents closer together in a borderless bountiful hub of creativity.
