about

In 2015, I collaborated with sculptor Kardash Onnig for an installation involving a piece for 4 hand-carved speakers. I put together the multitrack and this is an edit of speaker #4. About the project:

“TRANSFOURMING SORROW”
By Kardash Onnig
Centennial Commemoration
Of the Armenian Genocide (1915-2015)

“Transfourming Sorrow”, a powerful multimedia installation, will pay tribute to the systematic decimation of the Armenian population in Anatolian Turkey that began in 1915. It is also an invitation for people to mourn and transcend their own grief and sorrow.

When visitors enter the “Womb of Sorrow”, an acoustic sanctuary called a Mehian, they will encounter four different auditory experiences emanating from four large speakers handcrafted by Kardash.

Armenian Blues – A recitation of Vahe Vahian’s poem by Melo Ekizian
Rhythmic heart beats - Percussionist Mher Vahakn Ajamian on drum
Vocal resonances – Zulal, Armenian A Capella Folk Trio
A composition - Mixed by electronic musician Phil Moffa

Visitors will then walk to “The Field of Transfourmation”, an intimate enclosure of thirteen panels, each dedicated to a transference the artist had with others throughout his life, whereby an unspeakable loss and sorrow is transformed.
