There are some modes (Raak) in Persian music repertoire which come from Indian Raag. However, they are not the only connection between Indian and Persian music and I found similarities in some parts of other Persian modes. Those parts are not called exactly Raag but they have the same intervals in their structure. So, the reason to call my piece invisible is that I used invisible connections of Indian and Persian music to juxtapose these two genres. The modes in my piece are changed frequently. I have made an atmosphere to not to hear one of those modes dominantly. As an example, I started with Janpouri Raag, but I added Dashti Avaz in Shoor Dastgah and then the piece went to Shivranjani Raag, but none of those modes are used in traditional form. Therefore, I have composed a piece which does not sound completely Indian or Iranian and discovered possibilities of making new atmosphere by using my interpretation of these three modes.
