Lullaby & mourning song,
Both easing us into a sleep…

that blows now here, now there
and changes name
when it has changed its course.” (Prugatory XI. 100) Divine Comedy, Dante.

Tuba Özkan

Recorded September 2015, Mersin State Conservatory, Turkey.

Esin Gunduz is a new music composer and a vocal performer.  Her work investigates the types of energy that exists between all beings, exploring these energies as sensory experiences and sound.  In her works, the tessitura in human voices are transcribed into instrumentation and orchestration. The landscapes built from recorded-voices surround the instruments and inspires awe. —
