Goethe-Institut Damascus in Exile

The 60-minute audio-visual performance Home Within is the latest project by Syrian composer and clarinettist Kinan Azmeh and the Syrian-Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad. The piece contrasts art and music to create an impressionistic reflection of the Syrian revolution and its consequences. There is no clear narrative with the authors focusing more on documenting specific moments in the recent history of Syria and highlighting the emotional aspects using semi-abstract means. This project was created using an audio-visual collage published in March 2012 entitled A Sad Morning, Every Morning.
