In Amsterdam > Omar Musa
From the new book ‘PARANG by OMAR MUSA
An Ode To Ishtar > Hugo
Coinciding with Eostre, this is an Ode to that other Spring Goddess, Ishtar, in praise of the divine feminine in all its forms, but in particular Women the world over, and Mother Nature herself. A sincere prayer of thanks from a grateful Man.
I was asked by Philip Werner, photographer and compiler of the book ‘101 Vagina’, to write a piece for the exhibition and launch of the book. This is the result.
I have recorded it over the following music, which I respectfully borrow:
‘Together We Will Live Forever’ Clint Mansell (from the Fountain OST)
‘All Boundaries Are Conventions’ Tom Tykwer/Johnny Klimek/Reinhold Heil (from Cloud Atlas OST)
I have also combined the following videos together for the visuals
