  • Aram -e- Jaan

    I picked up my lute, I recorded a solo. But it didn't have the soul I wanted. I was like my most Persian/Iranian presence. So, I chopped the certain notes, I added a pitch shifter and I just made those notes one "quarter note" lower. This is what happens a lot in Iranian music.
    So, The result was good, and then I added a guitar drone. If you are familiar with geography of Iran, you probably know there's a river in northwestern borders of Iran (in Border of Iran, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Turkey) called Aras. There are a lot of nice, sad and lovely legends from that river among Iranians living in that part of the country. So, I really felt this piece can belong to the culture of Azeri and Kurd people of Iran, living in northwest parts of our beloved country.
    I think I explained a lot. And what's the meaning of the name? As this is a love song, I called it "Aram -e- Jaan" which is the Persian word for "Peace of my heart". A very poetic way to say "my love" in our primary language.
    So, this is the result. I hope you enjoy.

    there's some interesting, almost microtonal pitch changes going on in this. nicely done! Is this using Arabic 12-tone scale?

      It's Arabic/Persian 24 tone scale. But what I did is actually Chahargaah (it's an Iranian scale) which can be mapped to "Maqam Bayati" of Turkish music.
