2015 LOOS Studio Reflection: Reflection is a seven-channel fixed media piece for three traditional instruments (Santur, Setar and Daf) and four loudspeakers. The instruments are used to project the music in combination with the speakers. The sound of the instruments are also the source material for the piece. In fact they are reflecting their own sound in another dimension. Each of these instruments that I have collected over years has lived their own lives and now they come together to share their stories through their vibration. SOLO
2014 Vrije Academie Gemak Threshold: sound installation, This seven-hour piece is my first attempt to go from the concert hall environment to an exhibition situation. The work could be best described as something between a piece of music and an installation.The temporal aspect of music will be less in the foreground; instead the emphasis will revolve around textural and spatial aspects of sound. The sound-installation/composition addresses issues of time, perceiving time and time based spatial experiences. SOLO
2014 The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, Arnold Schoenbergzaal Gabbeh: performance, In this piece I tried to concentrate on the dominant qualities of a simple nomadic carpet (Gabbeh) such as simplicity, unity, monotonic, plurality and subtle continuous variation. Gabbeh consists of numerous sine waves like the knots in a rug. These sine waves fill the whole frequency range from very low to very high. All the intricate relationships between these sine waves create various timbre identities, which emerge slowly from the texture and disappear. GROEP
2013 The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, Arnold Schoenbergzaal Toranj: performance, One of the important differences between symmetry in visual and sonic realm is that in visual objects the symmetric aspect reveals itself instantly and the perception of symmetry is conveyed at once when you observe it, whereas in music, generally you need time to perceive symmetry. In this composition I used symmetric specialization which works very similar to the concept of immediate perception of symmetry in visual territory. this symmetric specialization works in a geometric level and it associates with our instant understanding of sound sources positioning at any single moment, then time passage is not a fundamental element in perception of the symmetric aspect, but more like sculpting the space. GROEP
2012 LOOS Studio Gereh: performance with visuals, Gereh for Setar and live electronics is an attempt to use an Iranian instrument in combination with electronics. In this piece Siamak is trying to explore new sounds of Setar and using extended techniques which is not common for the instrument. The piece is mainly based on improvisation in pre-composed situations. His main inspiration comes from a traditional technique in Persian music, in which there is a singer and an instrument player as accompanist. In this duet, the instrument player accompanies singer while and after each phrase, according to a certain rules. In this piece, Siamak is playing these two roles in interaction with electronics.
