Sounds of Freedom

Rozina Pátkai's sound installation, 'Sounds of Freedom,' is a tribute to all the courageous women of Iran, demonstrating solidarity with them. With profound respect, it resonates with their voices as they speak and sing in their mother tongues, carrying forward the rich tapestry of Iranian language tradition. 

This interactive soundmap invites visitors to immerse themselves in a symphony of cultural heritage. By delicately touching the map, a portal to enchantment opens, allowing listeners to embark on a journey through the diverse lullabies of various Iranian languages and dialects. Each melody unveils the lyrical essence of generations, fostering a deep connection to the shared human experience and underscoring the power of language as a vessel for expression and resilience.

As the harmonies gently cascade through the air, an intangible bond between past and present is forged, celebrating the indomitable spirit of Iranian women and their unwavering pursuit of freedom. Sounds of Freedom invites contemplation, evoking emotions that echo far beyond the boundaries of time and place. Through this ethereal soundscape, we are invited to reflect upon the enduring beauty and strength that emanates from the voices of those who have persevered against all odds, infusing the world with the melodies of their irreplaceable stories.
