INVISIBLE BORDERS I features the music of award-winning film composer Saeed Shahram a Persian-born musician. This is the album that started it all--the INVISIBLE BORDERS series. This album introduces a new type of music, combining Western and Eastern melodies and rhythms to produce a very contemporary sound, with exotic overtones. Unusual aspects of this album are the "tone poems": groups of pieces written around a specific theme. Look for two of them, "Sea Gives, Sea Takes Away", and "Scheherazade". Also notable is the use of several Persian musical instruments, skillfully orchestrated in concert with the more typical Western instruments.
