Get Flash to see this player.

Description
"Che Shod?" means "What Happened?" in Persian.
This song is tribute to the victims of recent violence in Iran, those who died, those who got arrested, ant their families.
This is the first song with our new band "Harmonic Trine", which is a coalition between the memnber of Confounded(me!) and members of Pharos. the band the we made the October Emotions album with.
The lyrics are in Farsi(Persian), but I've put an English translation of it here.
Lyrics are originally from the ancient poet, Hafez.

Lineup in this song:
Farbod is on Guitars,
Sahar is singing the Vocals,
And I'm over the keyboards, and also composing the song.

Lyrics
I see no companionship in anyone, what happened to every friend?
When did friendships tear apart? what happened to every companion?
(What Happened?)

Water of life has turned dark, where is glorious Elias?
Flowers are bleeding, what happened to the springtime wind?
(What Happened?)

Hafiz, secrets of divine nobody knows, stay silent
Whom do you ask, what happened to the wheel of time?
(What Happened?)

Whom do you ask, what happened to the wheel of time?
(What Happened?)x2

Flowers are bleeding,
Flowers are bleeding,
what happened to the springtime wind?
what happened to the springtime wind?

When did friendships tear apart? what happened to every companion?
When did friendships tear apart? what happened to every companion?
(What Happened?)x4

Che Shod
I pray daily for the Iranian people. They are a loved people in my world. This regime that creates such distrust in the world will reap what they sew. I pray that their crops do not hurt our Iranian brothers and sisters. The music is captivating and want to be a part of it at the first measure. Thank you for this song!

Thank you for your comment Andy, We Iranians are really thankful for the support of you people of the world, especially American people who supported us very kindly during this process.
As for the music, I'm happy you've enjoyed it.
Peace.

Powerful
Loved it. One thing that I've admired about your work is that you are not shy about composing long drawn out pieces --- my kind of stuff. Parts of it reminded me of Michael Oldfield, one of my favorite composers of long pieces of music. The lyrics are powerful, and the music is appropriate to the message. Really great. Would you mind telling us a little more about the band and the instruments used?

Thank you
Thank you Reggie for your kind words. personally, I myself also prefer the long pieces, so I feel more comfortable making long pieces.
About the band, Harmonic Trine as I said is a new band, formed by me and members of Pharos, another Persian progressive rock band.
not many instruments have used in this song, Farbod is on electric guitar, Sahar is singing the vocals, and I'm over the keyboard. and of course, a long process of composing and mixing which is also done by me.

Here is a link to fan page of Harmonic Trine on Facebook:

We've also made a myspace page for the new band recently, not many friends there yet, but here's the link:

P.S.
Oh I forgot the drums, both those that sound real, and those that sound like of a Tabla, I've made them on PC, not the real instrument :)
All those synth and bass sounds are also done by Keyboard & PC.

The music does justice...
to the experience of pain, oppression, violence against people who yearn for what any and all human beings desire, indeed, were created for... freedom, peace, true justice. May the arm of the tyranny weaken and the spirit of liberty grow in Iran.

A well done song by brave and talented souls.

excellent work
You band really clicks here... the music is captivating, well played, beautifully sung, and the poetry is distilled anguish.

My heart bleeds for the violence, deception, anger, and chaos in Iran. I am hoping with all my heart for calm compassionate minds to win there, and for you and family/friends to be safe.

Thank you for the music, as always.
ttfn,

Chimalus said 2985 days ago (July 23rd, 2009)
This is incredible.
It is a long and lofty climb, descending into deep pain. I feel uplifted into an unsettling awareness. There is responsibility being transferred from you, the artist, to me, the listener, to address the problem – to produce a medicine flower. This is spectacular music with a vital message. I have dreams for your band. Thanks, and really thanks, for this redeeming voice of fire.

Expression for a People
Your musicianship is a much needed voice for expressing the emotions of a people enduring the most difficult of times.
Throughout history, the artists of this world, like yourself, have been there fill these needs.

Great message, and a great song
First of all, there's a lot of companionship out here! All over the planet Earth, we, the free people are with you and for you.
The song. The guitar, wow! I hear some Floyd/Gilmore in here! I love the guitar, played with such passion and honesty. The song itself is very well arranged, produced, but I feel the vocals are a little bit too toned down, or doesn't get their rightful justice. That's the only suggestion I have, bring the vocals forward a bit. Other than that, this is great! The song has so many layers of surprises, a nice beat, but also with the rightful pain it deserves to the tears of the guitar.
I also wrote a song earlier about the same cause, feel free to listen would you have the time: http://www.macjams.com/song/53968

Thanks Mikki for your nice & detailed comment, love to know your ideas.
Yeah Farbod on the guitars have done an amazing work. also Sahar on vocals. she tried it to be more sorrowful than angry & loud, except from one part in the middle of song.
Also thanks a lot Mikki for your support on the cause, I saw your comment on our Facebook fanpage and replied you with a message, listened to your piece yesterday, already put a comment there. very well done.

Peace.
