This video piece was made by the request of a festival of media and time based art "Sguardi Sonori 2008". Then I had been staying in a rural town in Mongolia, and it was in the middle of the blackout period which had finally continued more than 3 weeks...
The second version in this page has a second layer which could not be made in Mongolia, because of the limited situaion. However the idea was in my mind since the begining. Therefore I would take this version as the original.
The original material of the sound part was taken from a recording of the blowing wind on/through a signboard on a street. Such a sound like a flute is called "Mogari-bue"(Mogari-flute) in Japan. "Mogari" means a kind of irrational force, also a period of the farewell to the dead in ancient Japan.
