Art Tawanghar - Infinite Pattern-نقش ماندگار-in-memories-of-maestro-Payvar-به یاد استاد پایور ft. Reza Rezaie
Art Tawanghar is an award-winning and Billboard charting composer, musician and multi-genre producer, who combines electronic production, live instrumentation, and a variety of Western and Eastern cultural influences to craft his uniquely relaxing and soul-searching sounds. We will be reviewing his full length Buddha Lounge 3 Chill New Age California next week bu today we are starting with the mesmerizing single “Infinite Pattern-نقش ماندگار-in-memories-of-maestro-Payvar-به یاد استاد پایور ft. Reza Rezaie”.
It mentions on his Soundcloud page the legacy of Payvar. It says “Master Farâmarz Pâyvar was an Iranian composer and santur player. Payvar died on 9 December 2009 after a long struggle with brain damage. Although once perceived as marginal, the santur is now considered an important solo instrument in Persian classical music, largely as a result of his work.”
The song is four minutes long and starts with subtle ambience and flutter of notes as well as precise and engaging Eastern percussion. From there the song unlocks a stream of sound. It’s a fairly dynamic song and although there are a lot of transitions everything feels seamless. The melodies are often hypnotic and meditative in a sense.
There is a lot going on and I felt like there wasn’t a focal point. It’s a track where you can point your attention to certain elements and laser in on what it’s doing. I would also say this is the type of music that requires high fidelity speakers or headphones. There is a lot you might be missing if you listen on laptop speakers. The last comment I will make is that the song has an endless sort of quality I usually have when I listen to ambient music.
I will also mention the production and recording quality is top notch. Every element is mixed really well and this is a richness and clarity that immerses you in the song.
This is a captivating song. Take a listen
