Mi†ra : nine sum sorcery

nine-sum sorcery debuted at Berlin Atonal’s main stage in August of 2019 and draws inspiration from Sohrab Sepehri’s modern poetry and Reza Negarastani’s theory-fiction book titled, Cyclonopedia which imagines oil as a sentient being.  nine-sum sorcery’s epic structure situates three traditional songs in alternation with three distinct audio-visual chapters; the songs are sung in Farsi and Kurdish and the a/v chapters unfold under
the following titles: The Wheel, Cyclone and Xerodrome.
