Ramin Arjomand Solo at The DiMenna Center

Pianist and composer Ramin Amir Arjomand presents an evening-length solo performance.

Arjomand’s work is born of a complex interplay of cross-cultural creative impulses. His long-form improvisations attain extremes of sound intensity, pushing the limits of spontaneous thinking while seeking simultaneously, and equally intensely, a compositional unity characteristic of fully-notated music. Their sound structure draws as much on a nineteenth-century European approach to piano resonance as on the unfettered sensibility of American avant-garde jazz. Beneath the surface lies a musical ethos that quietly echoes the Iranian dastgāh tradition.
