One World
ONE WORLD is a musical journey across our planet which explores the connections between cultures, the beauty of landscapes and the power of nature. Starting in the depths of the ocean, the cradle of primordial life, flutes play duets with the songs of whales. We proceed slowly to the beach, lulled by the sound of waves, while a sparkling layer of violin textures frolics over them. Traveling inland, we reach the jungle, and begin to hear the voices of animals and humanity. The voices carry a powerful message: We have one world, and although we are all different, we must work together. The journey continues, gathering voices and strength, from windblown deserts to rainy, fertile land in temperate zones. Rain washes our planet clean while the voices continue to sing: We have ONE WORLD.

Over The Hills
Our planet is home of an incredible variety of species. Unfortunately some are today close to extinction, imperilled by human action. The song is inspired by the last rhinos and tells the story of one of this beautiful endangered wildlife animal being tracked down by poachers, from his own view point. Out in the wild, who s the real beast? Can we stand by, accomplice of decline of nature?

Escuta a Mãe Terra
Andrea:" Each new day is an opportunity to awaken our true essence as human beings and to understand that we all have the same Mother, and that our umbilical cord was also connected to Mother Earth. It is time to listen to her sacred voice carefully and identify it with our inner voice as a child, realising that we both carry the same glories and pains, like mother and child. It is urgent that we grow sure of our essence and our role, so that her heart does not break. We may still have some time left to make some art and to scream togheter, but we must listen first. Escuta a Mãe Terra!" Sasha: After listening to the material of Andrea, and falling in love with her meditative and spiritual way of singing, I proposed a music track that could reflect (potentially) this qualities in our collaboration work. I believe we succeeded to create an original piece, that representing both of us in a perfectly stylistically and culturally "blended" song . Listen to Mother earth. I am glad we could lay our hands together for that matter. Enjoy the result! I am sure you will... ;-)

Not perfectly round. (Her voice/part two)
Elly: As I listened to Sasha's original instrumental track, it felt quite organic to me and I immediately heard a melody and words emerging as if it was earth itself speaking to me, like a mother. A mother that is sometimes taken for granted, ignored. But even if she feels unloved at times our mother earth is still here supporting us, sustaining life for all living things. Regardless of how we treat her she will continue doing so until the end of time, like a mother would.

Lament (Her voice/part one)
“Lament” is a first part of a two-part piece “Her Voice”, and represent the cosmic voice of Mother Earth - in this case - an expression of pain, sadness and loneliness … Based on instrumental “waves-like” movements, multiple layers of voice sound-texture creating a beautiful, and somewhat dramatical “flow”with hypnotic element in it. All that finishes just with a small “memory of existence”, a piece of beautiful reminder of “once upon a time…”

Maly (Money)
This intense and groovy song dedicated to a main reason we are in trouble in any possible imagined way in our relationship with our planet: greed . The love for money and personal power that overcoming common sense and instinct of self-preservation, the will to sacrifice the sustainability of life itself for illusional and selfish “well being” based on personal economical capabilities.

SOY (I AM)
Sasha: “SOY” (I am) is a romantic, Italian stylized song, where our relationship with our “mother earth” presented as an interaction. In order to thrive you need to treat each other with care, love, attention and respect - it’s the only way to keep it alive … The absence of those above will , eventually, lead to disruption and disconnection , and finally - “death” of it. Mariana: This song is the voice of the earth in the first person, crying out to embrace it and give it a hope of change. Mother Earth feels without strength and needs to recover it.

How I felt
In many religions and philosophies one soul is equal whole world. And if we going down to what is the essence of being human - it’s probably will be our emotions - that what makes us who we are. So… When it comes to emotions - it’s about feelings. … and when it’s about feelings - it’s about love. And there is no size of love: it’s always big from the perspective of the one who experiencing it… And this will be always the song that will represent us all, as humanity , and as Earthians .

Ya Hilalan
This is not a nice song. “Edgy” and aggressive in nature this piece is a statement of the force of Mother Nature on the verge of dispare - the last call to respond to love with love, and not with hate. Rooted in 19th century ‘muwashash” - a poetic form that includes music and vocalisation. It is a sophisticated musical genre that originated in Muslim Spain during the tenth century. It is described as a strophic poem with repeated rondo-like returns to a musical refrain. Musical environment of the piece is representing destructive and invasive attitude toward beautiful melody and words of love - something that can be interpreted as a today’s relationship of humanity with our very base - our beautiful planet Earth.

Qatalo elkhayal.
Heidi: Nothing lives up to the natural grace and beauty of what the earth has to offer. Instead of honoring it, we, humans, have systematically eroded the wonders of our planet with greed, short sightedness and straying far from the soul of our existence - the earth and our connection to it. The beauty is so great, it is almost like a fantasy. In the middle of all the horrific erosion, even the fantasy is dead. We (as a race) have killed it. This song expressing the wish to revive it and breathe life back into the astonishing beauty of the earth. Sasha: This song was a "classical" type of collaboration: from the very beginning - just a direction stylistically, until very end - fully recorded and produced track, we shared every step in creation of it,"ping-ponging" material to each other with remarks, wishes and corrections...Listen to it. Enjoy it! take it with you "take away" ! ;-)

"Bees and Butterflies"
Danielle: With vocal improvised in studio on a sunny tropical afternoon, Bees and Buterflies is the story of a flower that sings her gratitude and love to life. The flower is thankful for the bees and butterflies that come to flirt with her, and for the sun and the stars that reflects their beauty on her. Bees and Butterflies is a joyous call to reconnection with nature and its vegetal reign. it is written in “bulu” language, which is a language and tribe from South Cameroon. Sasha: With this song I had a bliss.... The picture of sunny day outside in the fields of green grass and all the flies and bees and butterflies immediately came to an idea of sound imitation of this picture "Z-z-z" and "J-j-j..." and when the clearly defined music phrase came in - I've heard exactly the chords you can hear now as well... It's a beautiful, hopeful and very brightening ode to life in all it's little and big forms, and the joy of being, and... being grateful to our beautiful "mother earth" that provides us with all that.

SAKALA BANA PHOOL - Celebrating Spring
'Sakal Bana Phul' is a Sufi song/ Sufi Kalam written by the 13th century Sufi and mystic poet Amir Khushrow. The song celebrates the arrival of Spring (Basant) on planet earth and also describes the longing of a lover in this season. It is said that one day, the poet saw a group of women dressed up in bright yellow Sarees, carrying bright mustard flowers were singing with utmost joy. Upon asking the women replied that they are dancing to celebrate the arrival of spring and are on their way to offer flowers to the goddess in the nearest temple. This inspired Amir Khushrow to write this poetry/ Sufi Kalam for his spiritual master Hazrat Nizamuddin ( one of the most famous Sufis on the Indian subcontinent and worshiped by all religions across India) to make him happy who was mourning the death of his sister's son. Hazat Nizamuddin was much amused to see his disciple dressing up in a yellow Saree, carrying lot of mustard flowers and singing for him and could finally break in to a smile after long. So every year, arrival of spring was celebrated through Basant Panchmi at Hazrat Nizamuddin as well as in all parts of India. I have composed 'Sakala Bana Phool' the way I connect with the philosophy of behind the song. I am so happy the way Sasha arranged it. We both wish and hope, you all like it and the song really touches all your hearts. Let the music connects and serve the greater purpose of human existence. Thanks and regards, Bijayashree and Sasha

Ilikner
Jivan: “Ilikner”. Another traditional melody in a new light . My vision and Sasha’s production, makes it sounds fresh and updated stylistically, is like a young voice singing old song. Sasha: Rare for duduk up tempo gave me an idea of trying almost impossible to associate with this instrument style - “Funk”, and some “Rock” elements. The whole experience become much more “stompy” and with attitude. Gentle sound of duduk now empowered by electric guitar and heavy drum patterns have a new “blood” in it. Enjoy the result of our passionate collaboration. :-)

Shushik
Jivan: “Shushik” (female name) This composition is Armenian traditional melody that played for years. I play them with my feelings and when Sasha does his magic by adding and changing the rhythms and harmonies they become traditional modernized masterpieces. Sasha: This amazing melody inspired me for a detailed research in harmonic fields, as a simple melodic line has a tremendous potential for interpretation. I hope I succeeded in surprising and convincing by my version of accompaniment, and rhythmic alternatives in achieving a new status of this piece.

Ngweha
Danielle: "Ngweha" (love in Bassa language) is basically an a capella song fruit of a total improvisation in studio. Realized in a process of free creation, where the harmonies were created and entangled as the inspiration went up, this song is an ode to the recognition of the need of love that resides in each one of us, this is a célébration of our natural ability to share that universal love with joy and abundance. Sasha: The hypnotizing, “shamanic” nature of Danielle’s song and her powerful voice inspired me for looking for special colors and unusual rhythmical patterns, in order to create “magic” supportive sonic environment. The song is minimalistic, so I carefully chose every part, not to distract focus form the “mantra”.

Upon the Horizon
I sent an iPhone recording of a melody idea for Sasha, and he sent back a fully produced track. I was very impressed and it made my song idea come to life in a way I didn't expect. I think his production makes the song more vulnerable, more interesting. For me, this song is special because it reminds us that we're all going through something. What is important is to remind each other that regardless of where we come from, we are still looking up at the same sky. We are all connected, like the lyric says: "We are all dreamers underneath a sky that glows." *Note- Sasha, I am not sure what instruments you used in the track, if you want to select those.

Youmma-يُمٌا
This song had been written upon a personal experience of loss, an attempt to transform darkness into light, to ''celebrate'' life while this world is becoming full of sufference and beauty at once. Sasha and I decided to collaborate because we both have curiosity for music on a human and artistic level, it has been a pleasure to work with someone with such efficiency and energy!

Diva (A Bird by Choice)
''Diva (A Bird by Choice)'' is a song celebrating the spirit of independent women across the world who dared to follow their dreams rising above of all the social boundaries. Sasha: I received an invitation from B (Bijayashree) for a collaboration exactly at the moment I finished my previous piece, and still had a hunger for more… Heard an idea proposed by B. and was really impressed to hear her vocal abilities :). I was happy to do it, as stylistically it’s different from what I usually do, and the challenge was a nice perspective to try my skills here. Bijayashree: This Original ''Diva (A Bird by Choice)'' is a composition close to my heart. I am very fortunate to meet the very talented, creative and humble musician Sasha on Beyond platform. Sasha agreed to work on my original composition even if the time was really short. His first bounce of the my original was what gave me the confidence that, we can do this together. As it says...Music has no language, this original composition has lyrics which does not necessarily has any meaning. It is a pure musical composition composed under the guidelines of a traditional Indian Raga. Sasha and me, we both look forward to see how this composition will be taken by the listeners. Wish and and hope that ''Diva (A Bird by Choice)'' touches all your hearts and you all resonate to the feeling of this original composition. Happy listening! Love and peace Bijayashree & Sasha

Complaint
" Complaint " is calling people to hear the cries of Mother earth which is being destroyed by humans . The song is sensitizing people to take actions against the destruction of the environment . Sasha: 2 weesk ago Minah have contacted me with a positive reply to my collaboration proposition (after 3 month that my message waited in her mail box), and… I couldn’t believe we have enough time for creating something that will be up to my standards - I like to have time for experimenting and letting things “sink and settle” … So I said “maybe another time”… I was surprised, but Minah wrote me again, and I felt the voice of passion behind the funny English :) - she is a Malagasy and French speaking. So - we decided to give it a chance. … and I think it was worth it. You are to decide. :-) I love a particular color of her voice and so different from mine way of melodic thinking. It was very inspiring collaboration that left a “taste for more”.

I Hear You
“I Hear You “ is a piece inspired by the concept of artistic search for perfection… that exist only as a product of creative expression. You never see it, but you always following the “voice” of it. It’s a not easy path to pursue , and one have to do it voluntary and dedicate his life to it - that’s the esoteric sacrifice that you have to make in order to enter this unstable and thorny relationship with your “muse”. My partners for this “love affair” where: an extraordinary guitar and drumset players from Switzerland and a brilliant and very unconventional cellist from Texas. Each one bring a new aspect and details to this tune, that definitely become a “fruit” of four. (I am truly blessed!) Thanks for listening, and… Enjoy!

four incarnations of love. 4.leaving
“Leaving” is the last piece of the cycle. This is an audio depiction of the last face of Love when it’s leaving for good. Played by Waldo Luck Alexander (violin) it’s perfectly describing that moment of farewell , and reminds me personally a phrase from old Russian song that “farewell is a little death”. Hope you can "tune in" , even it's not the most pleasant experience. :)

FOUR INCARNATIONS OF LOVE. 3.DISTRUST
The third piece is about “dark” face of love - jealousy and possessiveness. The partnership for creating it came from South Africa - brilliant violin player Waldo Luc Alexander accepted my proposition to team up for both last pieces of the cycle, and his “string-touch” helped to express the cold, annoying and destructive nature of this side of love here.

The second piece of the cycle of four dedicated to physical expression of love. Beautiful Arabic Nay was my choice to articulate the “dreamy” aspect of it. Itzhak Ventura, a known in the middle east musician, who played this instrument here , brings the colorful and vivid “hypnotic” energy to the piece, transforming it into a tale of “1001 nights”.

Water tale of Love
This piece have an entire philosophy underneath.Water, as an element , the only matter that connecting everything alive, as it’s present in all 3 (gas, hard matter and fluid) states everywhere.. More then that - as I believe (homeopathy principals ) that water have memory - it’s collected information about everything since it’s existence, that makes it the wisest and the most experienced element. And the message of it - love is the only way for everything.On a technical level in the piece - we have two “forces” in constant dialog : one, represented by piano ,is well structured, thoughtful , planned and calculated. Another (bouzouki) - is spontaneous, eruptive ,emotional and unstable. The interaction of this two creating the perfect balance - the ultimate solution for best outcome…The bright, “sunny” and colorful sound of bouzouki in hands of absolute master of it - Michael Paouris , made my dreams come thru , and now we have a product of two-way inspiration for your pleasure. Enjoy :)

Four incarnations of Love. 1. Romance
This is an audio "portrait" of the first appearance of Love. I’ve had a melody , that I recorded as a sample and sent it to Anat asking to listen to it and if she had an idea for words. Then I thought that it will be nice to have an instrument that not exactly expected in this musical environment... I started research the pieces uploaded to the platform and soon came across wonderful Kamancheh player Hassan Khodayinia. I asked him if he want to participate, and he generously agreed and in a week later I had several optional tracks from him. Interesting how passion can be expressed in so many ways :) It's sounds still special even to my ear, but I love the result , and happy to share it with you here.

L'addio di Anna
“L’addio di Anna” is a nostalgic franco-italian stylized melody of a cinematic/theatric nature - somehow the love and bright sadness are always there :-). The three main melody players however are far from this places geographically - clarinet ,played by brilliant musician of Iranian origins , duduk from Armenia and harmonica (melodica) … maybe this one the closest - Russian Federation. All of them playing the melody and improvising in a very touching and convincing way - even though our languages and cultures are different - our feelings are of the same nature. It’s fully expressed here and I am sure you will love it.

Night vision *Bolero)
When I studied music , I heard that once you put a man and a woman in the same room and let them listen to “Bolero” by M. Ravel - by the end of the piece they will fall in love. Even though it’s just a fantasy - I like the idea of “viral” passion of this masterpiece … I used a paraphrase of the Bolero as a starting point for creation of “Night vision”, and then asked Jake and Daniel to go as far as possible from standard improvisational way of thinking…. The result is for you to judge. Enjoy and let your fantasy take you far away :)

Chilly Ahavati
"When you will get to my house To the melodies of my love I'll open my door for you ..I'll give you my heart " It is a love song that I wrote, describing the deep love between me and my soul who yearns to fulfill its destiny without fear and trust its way in this world. In the song I speak with my soul and the Creator about my journey as a singer in this world but can also be interpreted as a love song between a woman and her lover. When Sasha asked me to send him a song for the Beyond Music project, I immediately thought about this song, which for me symbolizes my deep love for singing and music and the deep gratitude that I feel for the privilege and ability to sing I was very excited by the wonderful musical arrangement of Sasha and the playing of all the great and talented musicians in the song and I would like to thank them and Beyond Music for the opportunity and privilege Thank you and sending my love, Sharon

Mama
Sasha: Spending some time researching the “Artists” section of the platform I came across absolutely fantastic voices of Sepideh, Syssi and Sharon. Touched by their beauty and power I’ve decided to create a piece that each one of them will have a part and absolute freedom of expression. Basically it stands on improvisations of the ladies and a melody that I have written as a “child song” inspired by the conceptual idea of “the mothers voice as the first human voice we all hear”. As this voices maybe vary from place to place - they are all creating the same feeling in us - love. This is our take on it. Please - enjoy.

Shem al hai
I’ve asked Sharon to send me something that she think can be used for a collaborative work. After few days she send me this extremely interesting combination that representing her both cultural backgrounds. This chants - Yemenite (but in Hebrew!) and Indian (for the love of God) I couldn’t yet hear only in one place - the church…. So now we all can :)

To JK... With love.
A melody , dedicated to my dear friend and guitar player JK, that was a source for inspiration and left too early... Recorded with help of another friend with almost same abbreviation - JaKe, and one of the best music companions I've had - Thomi Geiger on soprano saxophone. There are some cello (Ioanna Seira) and violins on the background (Mihai Ilea and Javier Lopez Sanz) at the end, that made it much more vibrant and warm. Was a pleasure to work on this one.

La 'Allam
The piece "La 'Allam" is simply a Love Song composed by Ali Asaad, it is a piece of Ali's current working on new Syrian Song formations, which is built on intimate spoken contemporary Syrian poetry (here the poet Hani Nadeem) with various dialects/accents of Syrian-Levantine Arabic. Reflecting nuances of Syrian youths and their concerns and struggles to establish normality and to be able to live love stories under the pressure of the last severe 8 years. This forms "a new identity" questions especially with the huge number of Syrian youths who moved to Europe recently. The new identity is reflected musically by collaborating with Russian Swiss-based arranger Sasha Shlain, and Swiss Saxophonist Thomi Geiger, trying to bring the Syrian Pop Song into its new orbit, to confront new musical textures and possibilities of arrangement, effected basically by Jazz settings and electronics, and to find its new paths of dialogue in its new society, targeting Syrians and Europeans at the same time.

Searching for the Pitch No.1
The piece "Searching for the Pitch No.1" is built on Iraqi Folk Music / Religious Ritual Genre of Singing. It is being vocalized and recomposed by Ali Asaad (main chant and choir-like vocals). This uploaded track is a collaboration with the Russian Swiss-based composer Sasha (Alexander) Shlain who I have met on Beyond platform, and we started discussing and shaping our project together, and also with the Swiss composer and multi wind-instrumentalist Sandro Friedrich. The track includes Sasha Shalin's collaboration as arranger in the electronic accompaniment, as well as the own-improvised recorded solo of Duduk played by Sandro Friedrich. This will show how we are working on the material, and it is surely not a final result of every composition I am submitting (compositionally and for studio-related conditions).

The 11th Hour
When I browsed the different participants in Beyond Music, I liked Sasha's musical background right away: Such an interesting blend of different cultures and skills! It is reflected in this track which is unconventional yet very groove-centered, including allusions to many different cultures and styles! In this track I play bass flute, traverse flute and Jew's harps.

day after day
I wrote this very personal song, in the intimacy of my room, and it was quite an experience to work on it together with Sasha who gave it his own footprint, from both sides of the world...

Qarrart Aseeb (I decided to Leave)
I got a call from the migration office in Switzerland that i have to leave the country tomorrow out of nowhere because my work permit was not extended, although i studied, worked and lived there for 5 years. This triggered many emotions in me and made me taste a little tiny bit of what refugees go through all over the world. Before i departed to Cairo, i met Sasha, and i showed him the song i wrote about my experience. We let our souls express all we could feel and wish to create this piece.

Hurt
A collaborative work with amazing israely singer Anat Porat. Took some time, as a piece is very uncommon melody-wise , but the result is (in my opinion) astonishing. Loved every moment of working on it together...
