Sarkhaneh I

As you could see, the title of this compilation (Sarkhane) is derived from the first section of each form. Its symbolic significance is apparent: the present compilation is the first step towards composition is a new way inspired by old styles. It has only applied a minor part of compositional possibilities, and has left many of them to further experience; of these possibilities are combined form known as nowbat which signifies suite.
