Mesh

Mesh

Mesh uses faulty memory to reconstruct a timeline, as a way to activate or rekindle the living memory or passion of a willful but impossible chronological meshing. In this case, the musical piece attempts to reconstruct love and revolution. Sonically, it has been inspired by two concepts, the first borrowed from the composer Earle Brown’s “time notation”, or subjective meter, and the second from Egyptian Shaabi music.
