Rooted in Iran

Eine Ausstellung mit Arbeitsskizzen iranischer Komponistinnen

As silent witnesses of the creative process, sketchbooks, notes and drawings provide insight into the everyday work of fourteen female composers from Iran. In short audio and video contributions, the composers tell the stories behind the sketches: of the effort to fit the meter of Persian poetry into flamenco rhythms and to do justice to both cultures in the process; of the attempt to connect the Persian with the Western tonal system through abstract formal drawings; of the mourning for a tree cut down out of greed.
The contributions of the individual women are as individual as their current life situations in Iran, in emigration in the USA, in Canada and Europe or as those who have returned home from emigration. All of the participants are members of the Iranian Female Composers Association (IFCA), whose goal is to help female composers who face profound cultural and educational obstacles in their home country make their way into the national and international contemporary music scene.
The exhibition was curated by Ruth Wiesenfeld as part of her Towards Sound project in collaboration with the Iranian Female Composers Association (IFCA).
