about

I learned about Bandcamp back in the summer of 2012, when I finally overcame my fear of writing and recording songs. In those long hot summer days of Tehran, I spent my hours crafting silly little instrumentals and recording them in my bedroom, through a little Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 audio interface, into my laptop. At the time, I was also an active user of Yahoo Answers, where a fellow musician (Wire and String), used to do some monthly posts that were called “Musicians Post Your Projects”. Actually, it was through those posts that I found out about Bandcamp and started to discover some really nice music; I found lots of inspiration and got some heart-warming comments on my own songs too.

Now, thinking about all that, I feel somehow nostalgic. It’s been only 5 years, but hey, it’s the digital age, and time flies so fast. I mean, take YA for example; it’s nowhere near as popular as it used to be – it doesn’t even have the same looks. No “Musicians Post Your Projects” posts get posted anymore. And even many of the bands that I discovered back then are not active today. Nor am I the newly graduated high school student who found refuge in writing songs and discovering great music.

But in the end, this album is what I have on me from those days: bits and pieces - of every style and genre - which are at times melodic, and at other times self-therapeutic .
