Pianist, Composer, Songwriter, and Surgeon
Song Without Words
Peak position #99
Kayvan trained as a doctor at the University of Bristol, graduating in 1999 and now works for the NHS, specialising in Burns and Plastic Surgery. He also has higher degrees in Engineering and Law, but another great passion is music. He started to play piano at an early age, but it was only much later that he started to compose.
His style is characterised by atmospheric melody, written in a classic style with a modern twist. For example, the "Song Without Words" is remarkable in its simplicity but with a tune that is impossible to get out of your head! "Calm Before the Storm" takes you on an emotional journey that can be addictive, and "Fair L'Amour" speaks for itself! His style and direction moves away from conventional classical music whilst staying true to its roots, and aims at a more diverse audience. He is keen to collaborate with modern musicians from styles as diverse as dance and hip-hop, and to draw in a younger audience to provide young pianists with inspiration to play and compose.
The atmospheric nature of his music lends perfectly to adaptation for the big screen, and he is keen to collaborate with film-makers of all genres. His music is accessible to pianists of all standards, and the scores of his pieces are readily available. He recently performed at the Duke of Westminster's Estate at Eaton Hall on behalf of the Prince's Trust for their 30th anniversary charity event in October 2006, where he played a piece written specially for the occasion. He recently hosted and performed in a charity concert at the famous Brangwyn Hall raising thousands of pounds for local charities mostly related to the Welsh Burns Centre.
He reached number 1 with "Song Without Words" at the popular music website www.indiependencemusic.net, as well as top artist.
