Salim Ghazi Saeedi was born in 1981 in Tehran, Iran. He began self-teaching guitar in 1999. He has composed three albums "Abrahadabra" (2006), "Sovereign" (2007) and "Ustuqus-al-Uss" (2008) in the band Arashk. Afterwards he released Iconophobic (2010), Human Encounter (2011) and namoWoman (2012) as a one-man-band in which he played the roles of composer, guitarist, keyboard player, drums arranger, mixing engineer and producer.

Some critiques have compared his sound to Univers Zero, Art Zoyd, John Zorn, Patrick O'Hearn, Mike OldfieldDjam Karet and Birdsongs of the Mesozoic, David Bedford, Richard Pinhas, ZNR, Mecano, Present, Aranis, the entire Belgian chamber rock scene, Dick Dale, Anne Dudley and Jaz Coleman and X-Legged Sally. Some progressive rock publications have also compared his music to King Crimson and Robert Fripp's.

His albums could be regarded as concept albums hiring elements of classical and electronic music and progressive rock with diversified use of instruments. In his 2012 album, namoWoman, he incorporated Persian microtonal music influences.
