MARK DEUTSCH, WITH SPECIAL GUEST DAWOUD8pm – Mark Deutsch

Classically trained bassist and sitarist Mark Deutsch is the creator and
master of the Bazantar: a 39-string acoustic bass with additional drone and
sympathetic strings. He received worldwide acclaim as a unique musical
innovator, and his work is recognized for its spiritual qualities.

A sample of the accolades he earned:

“Mark’s sonic explorations invoke the ancient tradition of trance-ritual
and embody a sacred musicality rarely heard in Western cultures.” – Bill
Lasswell, Producer, Audio Alchemist and Bassist

“Mark Deutsch has created explorations into the depths of sound where the
roots of tonality beneath Eastern and Western systems are one. This
historis tone poem bridges the dark opulence of tone to the high visionary
sounds of the spirit. A must for all sonic adventurers.” – Don Campbell,
Author of “The Mozart Effect”

Music professionals are invited to attend as part of MFM’s effort to unify musicians of all disciplines, styles, traditions and localities. The music-loving public is invited to deepen their understanding of music’s true value to society, and to support of the social role of those musicians who earn a living from their art.

“We believe strongly that the time has come for the entire community of professional musicians to get together and advocate for themselves and their colleagues,” said MFM president Sohrab Saadat Ladjevardi. “Without unity among musicians there’s no way to communicate that music is not, cannot and should not be free. If we are to have music in our lives, we must change this expectation that has developed in the digital age.”
