A composition by Mehdi Aminian inspired by Ommar Khayam poem (1048 -1131) "Lullaby for the travelling child" Composed by Mehdi Aminian Arranged by both musicians "October" Composed by Mehdi Aminian "Quieter than Silence” is an international, multicultural, independent project of the Roots Revival Cultural Association. "Quieter than Silence” was born from a story of friendship, beyond stereotypes and political conflicts, between an Iranian - Mehdi Aminian and a Syrian - Mohamad Zatari in Bucharest. The project grew, when Leila Soldevila Renault (France), Behnam Masoumi (Iran) and Zabih Vahid (Iran) responded positively to the invitation of the two to join them. “Quieter than Silence” is rooted in Syrian, Persian and Sufi music cultures, applying various rhythmical and timbral elements throughout the process, which makes it a unique artistic repertoire hard to attribute it to particular geographical identity. The ongoing conflicts around the world and the current tragedy in Syria in particular, existential, contemporary humans’ existential issues, mystic Sufi literature and poetry and the various musical traditions from around the globe are the main inspirations in this album and its new approach to composition, rhythm and melody. Musically, it is a synergy between different instruments including Ney, Setar, Oud, Kamancheh, Percussion, vocal and Double Bass. "Quieter than Silence” is a dedication to the wandering Syrians in distress and grief. It is a form of compassion and a protest against all the noise in the world. مهدی امینیان: نی, سه تار و آواز محمد زعتری

"The Woven Sounds" - Demo - A Documentary by Mehdi Aminian
 
10:01
This is a demo of a documentary made by Mehdi Aminian on the Singing Cultures of Carpet Weavers Iran. "The Woven Sounds" project aims at documenting the intangible cultural heritage, the singing style, music styles around the process of carpet weaving in Iran. It focuses, in particular, on Naqshe Khani, a process in which someone with a loud and clear voice recites or sings the patterns from a map or memory to her/his co-weavers. Evidence suggests that this highly endangered genre had been a widespread tradition in Iran for many centuries. So far, there are little to no studies or presentations on this topic and this documentary movie is the first visual material that testimonies this vanishing culture. "The Woven Sounds" is a research project at the Austrian Academy of Sciences (OEAW) within the Commission Vanishing Languages and Cultural Heritage (VLACH) in collaboration with Roots Revival. -------------------------------------------------------- This ongoing project is carried out by Mehdi Aminian and his team.
