HAIKUS (Iran-Netherlands Electro Acoustic Music Project)

available on iTunes:
about project: The Album 'Haikus' is a joint product of Ehsan Saboohi (Iranian Contemporary Composer) and Gerda Geertens (Dutch Contemporary Composer and philosopher). The idea was a proposal from Foekjen Verhoef (Piano instructor). The piano department of the SKVR cultural centre in Rotterdam organised three concerts and recording. Piano students were practising the pieces and familiarising themselves with the contemporary Iranian and world music. In the meantime, Gerda made electronic versions of the the original compositions of Ehsan. Secondly, she created seventeen different projections, using photografic material of Jenny Westenbrink. And at the heart of each of these projections she animated seventeen Haiku, inspired by the titles given by Ehsan. Three poets: Peter Swanborn, Astrid Terbrack, and Gerda Geertens wrote these Haiku.The seventeen Haiku pieces featuring the album 'Haikus', were performed on 12, 19 and 26 June 2015 at one of the locations of the SKVR cultural centre, along with various other compositions for Harp and Saxophone Quartet, from Ehsan or Gerda.)The album 'Haikus' was recorded by SOFIESOUND on June 26, 2015, at the auditorium of the SKVR. Because of their great appreciation for this initiative in Rotterdam, Mahoor Institute of Culture and Art has decided to publish this music for all friends of contemporary classical and electronic music.
