When the Syrian uprising began in 2011, Syrian composer and clarinettist Kinan Azmeh found himself unable to compose music that would express his feelings about the destruction of his homeland.Orchestrated by Azmeh and Syrian-Armenian visual artist Kevork Mourad, "Home Within" is an impressionistic reflection on the Syrian revolution and its aftermath that plays out as a multimedia performance. It weds the performance of arranged music and improvisation with live art – Mourad's sketches are both onstage and simultaneously projected on a screen.In a few days "Home Within" will be revived in Beirut. Azmeh hopes that people don't come with too many expectations. The exciting part of seeing live art is experiencing what words cannot express, he says, which is the purpose of "Home Within". While "Home Within" has been touring North America and Europe for the last few years, Azmeh feels that the Beirut edition is special.
