Mugam Sayagi

Cryptic presents the third in our sensory series of audiovisual appetisers…

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 watch the T’ang Quartet playing in extreme close up, losing sight 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.
