Notable two-member electroacoustic group Niyaz featuring Azam Ali, in collaboration with interactive designer/visual artist Jerome Delapierre, present a new international multi-media show unlike any other.
This groundbreaking experience combines live music and sacred dance performance with interactive technologies and advanced projection/body-mapping techniques that respond to sound and movement in real time. The end result creates a new kind of live musical experience, one in which virtual and real space merge to create an illusionistic three-dimensional environment that eliminates the distance between the audience and performers.
This seamless synthesis of sound, space, image and light invites the audience inside the art to share in a unique narrative and multi-sensory experience.
Described by the Huffington Post as “an evolutionary force in contemporary Middle Eastern music,” Niyaz has created a 21st century global trance tradition, seamlessly blending poetry and folk songs from their native Iran and surrounding countries, with rich, acoustic instrumentation and state-of-the-art, modern electronics.
Their appeal reaches fans of fantasy, global electronica, Middle Eastern music, sacred music and alternative world music. The artists’ four bestselling, critically-acclaimed albums (released on Six Degrees Records), all debuted at #1 on iTunes and garnered the band media attention.
Their music has been featured in major Hollywood film and television scores including The Matrix, Prince of Persia, Thor: The Dark World, Body of Lies, True Blood, Nip/Tuck, Bones, Alias, Prison Break and Crossing Over.
