Tied Up for Oboe and Electronics by Mazdak Khamda is based on a poem by Rumi (below). It is also based on the Iranian folk song "Sari Galin".
Desires come, my wishes and longing.
I am tied up, knot on top of knot.
Then you that untie me come.
enough talk of being on the "path."
Let the way itself arrive.
This is the work that started it all - the first electro-acoustic work for oboe that I felt compelled to play. I so enjoyed learning and performing The Garden of Love by Jacob Terveldhuis, I sought out as many works for oboe and tape/soundtracks as I could, thus spawning my OboeTronics endeavor.
This piece is based on a poem by William Blake, who also did the woodblock print of this poem in his "Songs of Innocence and Experience".
