PAST, PRESENT AND IMAGINATION
Past, Present and Imagination consists of a thirty-minute composition of ambient/drone music accompanied by a performance.
This project encompasses events that can be broadly categorized into three stages: childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. These stages encompass experiences such as migration, being distanced from loved ones, living through war, loss, growth, and various other life encounters. Eventually, one must learn to detach from the things they hold onto. In the realm of memory, you have the ability to envision your past in any way you desire.
Our memories are susceptible to change, influenced by our perspectives and emotions. In this journey, one can become lost, leave behind certain aspects, or even forget altogether.
