Farzad Golpayegani: The Space Between Music and Art

“Welcome to a place where art and music sing in perfect harmony. This is a space that has largely been looked over by many creatives over the years. Not many visual artists or musicians venture here often. Usually, creatives are in one artistic camp or the other, but rarely both. However, Farzad Golpayegani is changing this standard. With his trusty 7-string guitar by his side and his surreal creations inhabiting his imagination, Farzad is laying the foundations to bridge the gap between these art forms in a space between music and art.”

Nine will be released on October 14th 2022

Happy to announce my 9th full album will be released on October 14th, 2022.

There are 10 tracks, which are mostly progressive metal with Middle Eastern influences, and 2 closer to acoustic and fusion style. I have explored some new guitar technics which are reflected on riffs and solos. I believe those will be interesting to shred guitar enthusiasts.

As always, due to life events there were a few gaps in the production. As you may know, music is not my only career, and I needed to focus on art direction and design for a while. Now I feel relieved that I completed it after 4 years!

The album will be in digital format only, and I’m not planning to release any physical CDs. I will post short videos and excerpts from the album soon, so stay tuned!
