Sorry all for the lack of posts, I'm a busy guy and only want to put up really choice and hard to find material.
A friend recently copies me the 1985 Folkways release 'Dariush Dolat-Shahi - Electronic Music, Tar and Sehtar.' Dariush Dolat-shahi is an Iranian-American composer and instrumentalist on the tar, the traditional Persian lute. His compositions include electronic and instrumental music as well as music for traditional Persian instruments.
I included in the album folder a text file with a interview with him for a little more information. No info on this release though. Its pretty tripped out and the blend of Electronics, Tar/Sehtar, and ambient recordings is amazing!!! I have a feeling that he's using a Buchla for the electronics, a very rare cult synthesizer if you didn't already know.
If you don't know how to open rar compressed files just download one of these program to extract the files. Make sure you grab all the parts if there is more than one file for a posting.
