In five original compositions, Iranian-American Dariush Dolat-Shahi blends computer tones and ambient sounds from nature with the Persian stringed setar and tar in his first record with Folkways. Birdsong, frogs, and thunderstorms create a backdrop for the undulating electronic arpeggios and the instruments’ improvisational style. This 1985 release balances the strikingly compatible old and new components, with a focus on rhythm and melody, to form a unique soundscape.
