"I was glad to find out that Progressive Art Agency is doing the Hassfest in Yerevan, Armenia with the participation of many artists from around the world. I have been doing musically scored paintings under the umbrella of Eye For Sound for a number of years now. So glad some of my pieces will be making their way to Armenia.”

“The Hass Guitar Fest in Armenia is a wonderful initiative to share the beauty of guitar music.
All the musicians are world class guitar players. I enjoy their wonderful playing and I am sure they will enchant and amaze the audience in Yerevan, Armenia.”

Build a collaboration-based festival format. The uniqueness of our art festival, which is also the first festival of its kind in Armenia, is that it is all based on collaboration between musicians and artists. Twelve international composers had a chance to get introduced to 20 Armenian fine artists, after which, each of them picked the most inspiring figure and painting for themselves. Now, the twelve compositions are ready to be presented alongside the inspirational paintings.
