Miatsoom (Reunion) (Audio)

Jan 01, 1997
Created by Charles Amirkhanian
Miatsoom explores the composer's ancestral roots and American heritage through the eyes of his 77 year old father, Benjamin Vresh Amirkhanian, who visited the ancestral home with his son for the first time in 1995. Incorporating many sounds recorded in Armenia, and manipulated on a Synclavier digital synthesizer, Miatsoom is a sound-music composition akin to an oriental carpet of textures and images from this ancient culture.
