Project 1695 has designed in spring of 2016 by Association Iranian Contemporary Music Composers "ACIMC", with cooperation of Bamdad ensemble and Parse Choral music. Maestro Nader Mashayekhi had conducted this project in fall 2016 in Ehsan hall, Shiraz. In this project, players and singers in Bamdad and Parse ensembles, with conducting of Nader Mashayekhi, will introduce the variety of aesthetics in 8 new compositions of 8 composers and their aims for making a new vision of traditional instruments, choral songs and electronic sounds, in Tehran contemporary musical festival.

The Association of Iranian Contemporary Music Composers (ACIMC) was established 2012 in Paris. ACIMC is the result of long discussions concerning the role of Iranian contemporary music composers and their contributions to today’s music. In recent years, Iranian composers, living in Iran or abroad, have collectively created an important repertoire of works. Associating these composers and their works will create a reference for future generations. It is our desire that the communication and collaboration between these composers will encourage the contribution and presence of Iranian composers internationally. Bamdad Ensemble was born in Shiraz in 2011 (1388) under the directorships of Sahand Shokrzadeh and so far, it is well known as one of the most activated music ensemble in the south of the Iran. In the past years, Bamdad has designed and performed many projects such as concert 1390 with maestro Majid Derakhshani and Pouriya Akhavas in Hafez concert hall, Konya concert in Turkey as Commemoration of Rumi in 2011, Shiraz week concert in Lisbon Portugal 2013, Choral performance of “Karak sing”, composed and conducted by Sahand Shokrzadeh and directed by Hamid Pourazari in 2016 and “Shiraz 1695” conducted by Nader Mashayekhi.

Parse Choral music started its activities in 2012 in Shiraz under the directorships of Tayeb Faghih. The aim of this group was to use the potential content of the folkloric music and poems and make a new combination with a vision of classical music. Parse had many performances not only in Iran but in different cities around the world in international festivals. Accordingly, some of the successful performances of Parse are: Silver diploma in Canta al mar festival in Barcelona 2015, Silver medal in international choral competition, Sochi Russia 2016, Silver diploma in Robert Schumann festival, Germany 2014, Golden diploma Canta al mar festival in Barcelona 2014, Hafiz day concert in Paris 2011.
