Music is our universal language. Music lets you travel without moving. Music heals your soul!
"The One" is our concept album, which is far beyond just music. This is our most personal album with the aim to connect you stronger to your soul. It is a tool to remind you, that you are flawless, that you are beautiful.
Hi, i am Mr. Shirazy and today i am happy to be here to tell you the story behind our project.
About 9 years ago i started a solo project with the aim to improvise electronic music right on the stage. The heart of my setup was my selfmade futuristic instrument "Freeak"!
With this instrument i could loop, record, play, mix and modulate not only music, but also visual sets.
At this time i also got aware more and more about how music beyond language and cultures touches the soul of the listeners, if it´s coming right from your heart!
Not very long after that - i just moved to Cologne/Germany - i started to reach out for other live musicians, as i always loved bringing together the vibe of live music and the endless sound possibilities of the electronic music:
The Exile Orchestra was born!
We have never been an usual "band", but an open collective of artists from music, visual arts, costume-, stage- and graphicdesign, bringing all the influences together. The latest discipline was bringing dance-performance as a new dimension to our live show.
An important part of our work has always been the message behind it. Music is more than just entertainment. It is a way to bring people closer to their own soul.
"We are all drops in the ocean of unity. We are all sounds in the symphony of humanity!" - OCEAN
Our new album, "The One" has a triple-decker meaning. The first is that this album is by far the most important i ever produced! A lot of my own personal transformation in the last 2 years flowed into this album. The 2nd is the conclusions that we are all one. The oneness, we might have forgotten, is surely one of the reasons for all the struggles of the modern world. We destroy the nature, we live in, cause we have forgotten that we are part of it!
And last but not least, i believe that YOU are "The One". We all have this potential of connection to a divine source inside of us. We can wait long for a savior. But why should we, when we have the direct connection to the source?
That´s why we say, that "The One" is more than just an album. It is a tool to remind you, that you survived all the struggle and suffer in your life; that you are awesome!
That you deserve to feel joy, breath, dance, love and be loved!
I feel delighted to have such an amazing network of great artists in this project. Wanting to introduce every single memeber of the project yet would explode this page! You find more infos about The Exile Orchestra here
The songs and the recordings are done so far, but we will use your support for mix & master, manufacturing the CD, the artwork, the promotion of the album and the organisation of the release concert. At the end to bring it from the studio into the real life and spread the word about it.
So your very little (and big, too!) support is appreciated and we hope you´ll want to be involved in making it happen.
On the right, you can see all the exciting rewards that are available if you get involved. From the finished album to VIP tickets to our release concert or a one on one Skype masterclass with me.
Here are some examples of our previous album artwork so you can see how much love we put into the details:
