    NEW PERSPECTIVES: a santur recital and talk by Roozbeh Nafisi



    The program will further introduce a new approach to the art of santur performance focusing on new extended performance techniques. The performance will be delivered, after a pre-performance talk, in two parts with a short break in between.



    - Part One: Improvisations About Tradition

    - Part Two: Improvisations Beyond Tradition



    About the musician:



    Next to striking the strings of santur with his mallet-tips, Roozbeh likes to involve some extended performance techniques to get a more colorful variety of sounds from his instrument.



    Roozbeh Nafisi (b. Dec. 22, 1979 - Tehran, Iran) began studying the performance of santur in Iran (1988) under Mahmoud Safdari and later Ardavan Kamkar. As a teenager he wrote his earlier compositions for this instrument.



    After studying music theory and composition (with Prof. Leo Eylar) at California State University, Sacramento he continued his study of music composition at the Hochschule für Musik Trossingen (with Prof. Norbert Fröhlich) under a fellowship from Germany until 2006. His other teachers include Prof. Andrew Imbrie on composition and Miss Elizabeth Barton on performance techniques.



    At the moment Roozbeh spends his time in California performing, composing, and teaching. He has just completed a series of concerts in collaboration with the Indian santur maestro Tarun Bhattacharya and the tabla virtuoso Arup Chatterjee. Roozbeh has recently been nominated for a 2008 Japanese Government Research Scholarship towards composition study in Japan.
