Various Artists - In The Cities Of Your Eyes

Download, Booklet


In The Cities Of Your Eyes is a col­lec­tion of 23 experimental tracks with all proceeds going to refugees resid­ing in camps on Les­vos, Chios, Samos and Leros, Greece.

I took a photo of the gentle sea near Kirk Michael, Isle of Man and then added colour and noise to highlight the shapes left where the waves fade to almost seem like small islands themselves.

For the compilation I also put together a booklet with stories from the camps and photos of refugee children taken by Matina Katsiveli. The title comes from a poem by Syrian diplomat, poet and publisher Nizar Qabbani.
