Το “Mirage” αποτελεί μια ποιητική ερμηνεία της μυστηριώδους φύσης της ερήμου του Ιράν. Παραδοσιακές θεματολογίες, όπως θρησκευτικές προσευχές, ύμνοι, σε συνδυασμό με την καλλιτεχνική άποψη του Ahmad Pejman για την αρχιτεκτονική, την γεωγραφία & τις λαϊκές παραδόσεις της ερήμου, δίνουν τη θέση τους σε μια μυστικιστική ατμόσφαιρα όπου τα παραδοσιακά όργανα (donali, kamancheh, delroba, gheichak, dohol) διαδραματίζουν σημαντικό ρόλο“.

Ορισμένα κομμάτια του “Mirage” είναι εμπνευσμένα από την υποψήφια για Όσκαρ ταινία Baran, του Majid Majidi,  σε σύνθεση του Pejman.
