        An Evening of Persian Electronic Music
                      Saturday Dec. 1, 2001
                   8:00 p.m. Pacific Time
   Center for Research in Computing and the Arts

Persian traditional music has a very old tradition which has
been formed through many generations. Improvisation plays
an important role in this music, and therefore, the musical
expressions are in constant flow of change; however, the
musical language within this tradition has barely changed in
the past few centuries.

This concert will use two very different musical traditions
and presents them as complementing musical material.  In
this concert Yadegari uses the computer, a very modern and
contemporary machinery, and the utility of its underlying
concepts in the domain of sound, such as algorithmic composition
and interactive processing of sound, as musical tools for composition,
improvisation, orchestration, and spatialization, within the
Persian music language.

   Part I :  Tape Pieces by Shahrokh Yadegari

   Part II :  Improvisations by:
               Shahla Sarehchani: Vocals
               Keyavash Nourai: Violin, Kamancheh
               Shahrokh Yadegari: Computer

   Concluding with the composition "A Window" (2001)
    based on a poem by Forough Farokhzad
