OMID SHIRAZY (vocals, electronic, trumpet, visuals)
Born 1971 in Iran. As result of the Iran-Iraq War 1986 he immigrated to Germany. Already early in life the combination of acoustic instruments and electronic devices fascinated him. Omid studied Jazz and electronic composition at the HKA Arnhem/Netherlands and at the Folkwang University Essen. Since 2000 he dedicated himself to visual productions and their co-composition with musical means.
He had various productions and international live-performances as a singer and visual artist in e.g. Moscow, St. Petersburg, Barcelona, Mexico and Thailand. Together with “Tapesh 2012” he was the winner of Creole NRW 2006.
With the invention of his own audiovisual instrument “FREEAK” he accomplished a long pulsating vision: to bring improvisation, live-performance, electronic music and visuals together.
