To Bare the voice, a Witness for soul.

While "Flight" takes us towards the beloved, "Hymns of Another World" reflects on one's search for meaning and openness to new inner/outer worlds. "Burning Soul" makes vivid the struggles a soul encounters, while "Prayer" pays homage to the wind and prays with humility.

I recommend enjoying the tracks through a home studio or a good pair of audio speakers. Lyrics provided with full album purchase.

Released on May 22, 2016 Produced by Todd Boston Recorded and Mixed at Magic Cottage Studios Pads and Atmospheres by Todd Boston Mastered by Ryan Kleeman Lyrics for 'Flight' co-written with Sonia Tatiossian Lyrics for 'Hymns of Another World' written by Avedis Seropian Vocals and Duduk woodwind by Khatchadour Khatchadourian All Rights Reserved ©

Delbedel

Khatchadour Khatchadourian & Saideh Eftekhari

In cart Not available Out of stock

Delbedel is an amalgamation of the Farsi words del (soul) and bé (to)—"del bé del” gives us the phrase “soul to soul.” As sound travels on the pathway of souls, delbedel invites the listener to make their own journey inward.

Saideh is a Tehran-born, Kansas-raised vocalist, violinist and setar player. Nomadic at heart, she draws inspiration from the diverse soundscapes of her sojourns in various countries of the world.

Khatchadour is born in Beirut, and is a vocalist and a duduk player. He references Armenian and Arabic vocal traditions and experiments with electronic soundscapes.

Listening Suggestions: Given the richly detailed and intricate soundscapes, we recommend enjoying the tracks on a home studio or through a good pair of audio speakers.

Ascent explores two directions: meditative (tracks 1, 2, 5) and cinematic (tracks 3, 4)

This work would not have been completed without the help of several individuals: Avedis Seropian for the wonderful lyrics of track one, Amir Bozorgi for the careful listening and feedback he gave me, and Brad Murphy for initially letting me use his computer software for generating part of the background music of track one.

Note: I recorded this album in my apartment (Home Studio), and the album is not professionally mixed nor mastered as is offered for free. The most ideal listening environment is through home sound systems or with a good pair of headphones.

Arshaluys

Khatchadour Khatchadourian & Robert Kudrna

We have combined the ancient Armenian double reed woodwind, the Duduk, with the contemporary singing crystal bowls to produce unique music. As musicians, we let them interplay and produce melodies we found to be mysterious, yet quite natural. The Duduks and singing bowls seem made for each other.

Released on March 14, 2011

Special thanks to Franklin Miller of Leo's ProAudio, Oakland California, for his insights and technical expertise. Thanks to Natalie LoBue for introducing Robert and Khatchadour to one another. And thank you to Shea A.J. Comfort for patiently teaching Khatchadour the Duduk for the past four years.

Particular thanks to Seeroon Yeretzian for providing the cover arts. Seeroon is an artist based in southern California. To find more about her work visit www.seeroonart.com

In memory of Robert Kudrna, who passed away a few months after the release of Arshaluys, the album is offered for free.
