About the Album

‘Silver Lining’ is the first song that Pass wrote during the 2020 lockdown in Perth, Australia. The creative process of writing music for Pass has historically been motivated by upcoming performances or rehearsals. However, with stay-at-home orders as the nation came to terms with an evolving global pandemic, Pass suddenly had a far more comfortable process, writing for the sake of writing and exploring self-expression and reflection. The result is a creation of something new, rather than ‘fusing’ two genres, not strictly traditional Persian music, nor jazz, but something else entirely. A unique sound combining the sounds of Persian flute (ney), percussion (daf) lute (saz) and oud with jazz instruments that celebrates the energy and emotion of live performance. Most of the compositions on this album were written for a show called “Shahnameh: Songs of the Persian Book of Kings” which was performed at FRINGE WORLD in 2020 and won the Martin Sims Award. This award was intended to fund a tour, but with travel restrictions they decided to record an album instead – a silver lining!
