As children, we are raised with many imposed social frames (i.e. traditions and norms) which implicate lots of incapacitating approaches, blocking the mindset of searching and problematizing, which eventually mold us to be socially accepted beings. However, I took the help of my music and my instrument to express my refusal and repel to all kinds of frames and to deal with the scenes of violence. To shake things up, I wanted to express my rejections to all forms of repression and powerlessness, while expressing freedom in each of my performances. From here, my project to dive with the qanun away from the traditional frame is actually rooted.
Driven by my curiosity in music and its continuing influence on me, I have decided to explore the world and myself through music, with the intention of broadening my horizons by reflecting on the meaning of my artistic work and how it can help me connect to the world around me.
Throughout my musical career, I have been a musical adventurer – a self-learner striving to expand the limits of my artistic perspective in every way possible. On the other hand, it has been a challenge to find my way in the world of music with its vast ocean of concepts, theories, and styles. However, in my practice, I have found that not being constrained by any theories of practices has been a significant advantage that led me to deal with music outside of a particular genre. In light of this, the basis of my creative process is centered on the instrument that I play, its sound, and my personal connection to it.
