A piece from/for the loved ones Album by Omarleen and bent 5ajule, relesead november 19, 2022 on DJ cut3.
A piece from/to the loved ones: multiple tracks that flicker between different sonic emotional spheres; from sadness to joy, despair, hope, consolation, pain to laughter and calmness. These oscillations take place through the presence of different sonic references: readings of Quran from Muhammed Omran and Abd al-Baset Abd al-Samad, the singing of Asala Yosef, Jofeat of the Druze of Palestine, samples from documentaries about the Euphrates, funny videos, latmyat of the Shia Islam, Ataba of the Syrian army, a Piano piece by Ghazale Moqanaki and Aleksandra Komsta with sounds of electronic improvisations. The sonic flickers smoothly come together with the melodic/noise sonic background that stays present for almost the entire play time. This work is extracted from an improvisation session between Omarleen and bent 5ajule that took place in the Netherlands, in exile. This album is perhaps a family photo album, as well; But a talismanic image, and a talismanic love. In a talisman, the word looses its body between a place in the text and a place in the image, maybe this had always been the position of the word in a song, flickering between language and voice (heart). We gift this talisman back (from/to) the loved ones.
