ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
AGAH BAHARI was born on July 3, 1983 in Tehran, Iran. He started studying music at the age of seven, playing the recorder flute and xylophone. When he was ten, he moved on to the classical guitar (nylon string), but soon gave it up in favor of playing the keyboard which he played for four years.

Then, when he was fourteen, he picked up an electric guitar for the first time and hasn’t put it down since! At the time, he loved Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera and few other speed/thrash metal bands, and played rhythm guitar in this style for four years. By 2002, he was ready to play five sold-out performances for more than 1,000 people at the Tehran Art University with the band Exir. Couple of month later, he has accepted to attend world known Berklee College of Music, placed in Boston, MA, which never happened as his student visa request has been rejected by the american embassy.

Soon after, he formed his own experimental trio, D.N.A. In 2003, D.N.A. performed four shows, for over 800 people, with proceeds benefiting a charity for children with cancer. D.N.A. broke up about a year later because of the problems musicians in Iran sometimes face.Soon after, Agah was asked to write a song for a video and music exhibit called "Depression: A Multimedia Project" at the Tehran art gallery Tarrahan Azad.

In the Fall of 2004, he was invited to join the band Meera who had released their first album in both Iran and Australia. Agah performed guitar, songwriting and composing duties with the band, and recorded three new songs with them, one of which he wrote. This song later reached Number One on Iran’s music billboard.

In 2005, Agah moved to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia for 5 months to attend the International College of Music (ICOM).He studied music and performed as a guest guitarist, getting his pre-foundation certificate and improved his writing skill in the songwriting workshop with Sting and Dominic Miller. He returned home to Iran and re-joined the band Meera, playing four sold-out shows. After another live performance at the Taraneh Music Institute in Tehran, he began to write and record his own music.

In June of 2006, the first song, "Revolving Universe", was recorded with members of Planet X, Derek Sherinian on keyboards, Virgil Donati on drums and Rufus Philpot on bass. The Planet X members recorded their parts in Hollywood and then added Agah’s guitar tracks, which were recorded in Tehran.

In Oct of 2006, the iranian ministry of culture announced that Agah has been officialy banned to having any performance and/or recording in Iran since 2003.Soon after, in Oct.11.2006, Agah left Tehran, Iran to Toronto, Canada.

In Jan.08.2006, Agah re-started working on his first solo album with the keyboard virtuoso and the producer, Derek Sherinian, as well as other legendary names in Prog/Fusion music, Virgil Donati and Ric Fierabracci.

In Aug.08.2008, Agah released his first solo album, The Second Sight of a Mind, independently. It led to several interests and offers from record labels, including a record deal from the world known Magna Carta. In Dec.2008, Agah signed a distribution deal with the canadian prog label, unicorn Digital, which have re-release The Second Sight of a Mind on Apr.10.2009.

What A Debut Album!
This is solid work. Instrumental progressive music of high class! There\'s not much more to say than the author Jeffrey I. Gutenberg already has written. I\'m very, very impressed. I can listen to the cd over and over again without getting bored. I\'m looking forward to Agah Bahari\'s follow up to \"The Second Sight of a Mind\" It must be pretty good to beat this one! I like to reccomend this progressive metal music to all progfans. A cd you just have to own if you\'re into progressive music.

An Extraordinary Debut by an Extraordinary Musician
To say I'm impressed by what this young virtuoso has done on this first album, coming from a situation which is far from ideal for rock musicians of any kind, much less those whose passion runs to the progressive genre of rock music, is an understatement to say the least. This is an incredibly mature and dazzlingly complex debut by a player who possesses a sophistication and self-assurance beyond his years. If a musician can be judged by the players surrounding him, then surely my praise pales in comparison to that of the stellar bunch featured on this disc, because it just does not get better than the likes of Derek Sherinian, Ric Fierabracci and Virgil Donati. This is one of the most unexpected delights of the year so far, from a most unexpected source. Watch out for Agah Bahari, because this is only the start of things for him.

This a superb cd,, i don't pasrt with my cash too easily,, so i played his myspace profile several times before buying,,,what i am particularly impressed by is the writing and interplay between guitars and keys . The keys are courtesy of the extraordinary Derek Sherinian-what a dream partnership that lifts the cd way above the average,,, great soundscapes and themes..and flawless technique for those guitar lovers out there...i do hope to hear more,and especially if this partnership stays together,and!! i almost forgot the rest of the rhythm section are truly world class too,, what a package.

Planet X incognito
Solid riffage, fusiony, proggy. metalloid fun and recommended for Planet X fans. Plenty of shred meets fusion for fans on high-octane music ~ John W. patterson the JazzFusionGuy of EER-MUSIC.com
