World premiere within the framework of the international project Outernational
We are living through the greatest extinction of species in history. Many languages are also getting lost, as well as music and related sounds. The programme EXT INC / REMEMBER ME, created by Aida Shirazi and Emre Dündar, and presented as part of the festival’s collaboration with the intercultural project Outernational, traces the lost to find new connections in faded memories.
Aida Shirazi explores forgotten sounds, Emre Dündar lost languages, whose secrets he traces in his compositions. Intertwined with ancient musical compositions along the borders and new approaches to old songs, their works (composition, electronics, voice) flow towards the future of connection with other sounds and genres.
