Kinan Azmeh, composer, clarinet
Kevork Mourad, live illustrations, visuals

“Kevork Mourad’s live sketches combine with Kinan Azmeh’s clarinet to create a whirlwind of images to mirror the seven years of war that have made their country unrecognizable.” Reuters

The Silkroad Ensemble creates music that engages difference and sparks cultural collaboration for a more hopeful and inclusive world. A 60-minute audio-visual performance, Home Within is the newest project of Syrian composer and clarinetist, Kinan Azmeh, and Syrian-Armenian visual artist, Kevork Mourad. In this work, art and music develop in counterpoint to each other, creating an impressionistic reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath. Rather than following a narrative, the artists document specific moments in Syria’s recent history and reach into their emotional content in a semi-abstract way.
