Conversations on music
Always athirst for new experiences, Keyvan Chemirani has won against the odds of being able to do what has defeated many a player on wood, metal and skin, namely, hold his world together. A Persian, Indian and Malinese world harmonised within an over-arching structural concept which permits everyone to express themselves according to the rules and discipline of their own artistic tradition. As ever, The rhythm of speech has been drummed out through the fingertips and the hollow of the hand as new encounters, combinations and ways of accompanying have been explored in the course of numerous experimental sessions, concerts and discussions, culminating in the studio event of July 2005.Half-rough, half-polished diamond, conceived as a musical equation with many as yet unknown facets, this project is a story of daring and ambition to succeed. The studio recording-sessions are the culmination of a long process of experimentation with innumerable combinations, they are the moment when the bandit at last prizes open the precious casket!Brought to life at l’Abbaye de Royaumont with the help of the Department of Traditional Oral and Improvised Music under Frederic Deval towards the end of August 2004. The genesis of this musical encounter has sprung likewise from the work and recordings initiated by Martina A. Catella, ethnomusicologist and artistic director of The rhythm of speech, opus 1 (AC 104). She had the great idea to gave it a meaningful name, which resumed in a poetic way Keyvan Chemirani’s musical approach.
