Repertoire Mugam Sayagi, by Franghiz Ali-Zadeh

It is time to take your lunch break and savour a Sonic Bite… on Thu 8 October

Franghiz Ali-Zadeh’s Mugam Sayagi focuses on a secret 16th century Islamic language which was used to conceal forbidden emotions.  In response to this ‘mugam’, we see the T’ang Quartet playing in extreme close up, losing site of whether we see the movement of flesh or are lost in some unique, unknown landscape. A film sensually visualised by Cathie Boyd and Joseph Lee.
