My research will explore the possibilities of cultural hybridity and collaboration between Persian classical music and Western contemporary music through instrumental and vocal composition; aiming to facilitate community engagement and education. I hope to create an innovative, accessible, and understandable form of Iranian music, as well as to investigate the possibility of conducting research into Iranian oral music traditions (Radif Dastgahi) and incorporating them into my composition process while working with western contemporary ensembles or orchestras.
