Lettres au Premier Ministre
Intercultural musical collaboration with Katia Makdissi-Warren for the film directed by Andres Livov with les Filmes de l’autre and the NFB.
Sound and poetry underscore images of the Park Extension community to create a musical soundtrack that reflects the diversity, challenges and resilience of the people and place. To create this dynamic score, nistamîkwan brought together composer Makdissi-Warren and Syrian oud virtuoso, Nazih Borish, to create a soundscape that would reflect the complexity and subtleties of the community in transition. Mixed together with elk skin frame drum and upright bass, the music emphasizes intersections of oriental and occidental traditions.
