tombak Madjid Tahriri

Tombak is an Iranian percussion instrument, capable of performing very complex rhythms. My piece tries to discover new playing techniques for the Tombak, which usually aren’t playable on it (such as pitch changes, sustained notes, etc.) The basic idea of the composition is a conversation between three different Tombak each having its own character (low, middle, high register).
