ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Oud provides a feeling of peace and nourishes the heart and mind. “Formations” is a peaceful musical journey based on the musical traditions of Iran and surrounding nations.

This collection of six improvised studio recordings weaves in and out of musical modes and rhythms.

The use of different Ouds and different tunings add to the unique sound obtained in these recordings.

The original idea for the album title came from the way melodies are formed and arranged. It is a spontaneous organic experience stemming from years of exposure to a musical tradition. It is like a language. Like the tools used for writing a language, the Oud is a musical tool for music.

The Oud player holds a long plectrum much like a quill, and plucks the strings in the same way a calligrapher strokes lines and dots on a blank sheet of paper.

The album art features a pattern using the shape of the diacritical dots used in the Arabic writing system called “i’jam”.

Wonderful
Navid is a wonderful talent who weaves gorgeous sonic tapestries on the ancient Middle Eastern lute - the oud. His technical mastery and soulful playing produce music that is evocative, exotic and enthralling. Highly recommended.

Ravishing
I have worked on several of Navid's online oud courses and learned a great deal from his excellent videos and written materials. He is dedicated to sharing and teaching this amazing instrument. This album shows the dark, expressive qualities of the oud and the expertise of the artist creating them. Completely inspiring and ravishing!
