Premiered December 3rd 2019, “Leicht über Linz” at the Anton Bruckner Private University

The piece look into the relation between three topics, first of them, animal languages from insects and birds. Second, the Sufi Persian poetry book “The conference of Birds” from Farid ud Din Attar, in which birds are looking for their “sheikh” spiritual leader. During the piece, I use sound syllable, as a metaphor of “searching” as a state in mind through sound. And third, Zaum poetry as a transracional language without a definite meaning. Wind Mind aims to create a communication network that is not represented by words and meanings, but by sounds and the experience of perception between listening and sounding.
