Description

Unforgotten Sketches on CD

Avant-garde musician and concert-performer of Persian/Iranian descent ; musical composer ; musical instrument-maker ; actor ; singer ; and poet. Alan is an internationally recognized Persian avant-garde 'santurist', and the leading exponent of the New Santur style. After passing through multifarious phases of musical composition and performance on his supremely delicate yet highly sophisticated musical instrument - his self-made hammer dulcimer or santur -, ranging from traditional Persian music, to fusions of Western classical and Persian mystical music, to jazz and world music, as well as futuristic and avant-garde music, Alan Kushan is still audaciously and earnestly experimenting in the musical realm. His techniques on his self-made santur are indeed altogether fascinating and breathtaking. He studied music composition in Zurich, Köln and Berlin as well as Canada and USA; he also studied with Sir Yehudi Menuhin, Karlheinz Stockhausen and other master musicians.
