Seven, Fixed Media by Niloufar Iravani published on 2017-06-20T01:46:47Z Seven was composed based on the idea of multiculturalism in music using seven modes of Iranian classical music; Shur, Mahur, Esfahan, Bayat-e-tork, Dashti, Afshari, and Chahargah. Short representative melodies of each mode performed by Setar, Iranian instrument, as well as excerpts from the composer’s work for solo flute, Fusion, were used as the source materials. The data from both sources were processed with Studio One and Pd-extended to create new sounds, designs, and characters. Iranian modes provide diversity with modal and rhythmic variations while the flute excerpts, with no significant modal transitions, create unity. The work presents a unique fusion of tradition and technology by the integration of Iranian traditional music and Western music and the synthesis of acoustic and electronic sounds. The focus on number seven (seven minutes, seven modes, and seven channels), makes it clear that a numerical approach was considered in this work.
