Silent is a multi-media composition for clarinet, cello, piano, soprano, tenor, audio playback, dance, and visuals commissioned by Charsu Quartet. It is inspired by The Wind-up Doll, a poem by an influential Iranian poet, Forough Farokhzad (1934-1967). Influenced by the poem’s perspective on the ways a male-dominated social system in Iran has destroyed women’s lives, I aimed to depict the feelings of an emotionally, physically oppressed woman struggling towards change.
