Worlds Within Worlds is proud to announce the release of David Hush & Hamed Sadeghi’s Harmony – an atmospheric endeavour into east-meets-west minimalism. This Album is to be released soon in May 2019.
This duo project between Hush and Sadeghi takes two instrumental masters pairing piano and tar to create 10 tracks of suspenseful, meditative and contrasting music. While Hush’s delicate piano taps subtle influence from the likes of pianists Bill Evans and Keith Jarrett, Sadeghi’s brooding tar comes inspired by great tar maestros such as Ustad Hossein Alizadeh and Ustad Ali-Akbar Shahnazi. Their final influences, however, are each other – this album being fruit borne from mutual respect.
Outside of the contemplative soundscapes, Harmony’s juxtaposition of piano and tar draws the cultural and theoretical differences of each instrument into the spotlight. Neither shadow each other, rather they shine and amplify their opposing element in the way sunlight illuminates the surface of the moon. Never a more apt name could have been chosen for such a project, as Harmony shows that two different musical languages can still unite under a similar spirit.
