"... of struggle and hope" is a sonic reflection on the impact of the socio-political events in the world we are living in. It attempts to combine Ormavi's tuning system with the concept of finding the Iranian classical mode in the harmonic series, with a focus on the overtones of the fourth octave. The piece contains the timbral fluctuations of the acoustic instruments, the transformation of their sound and sonorities through digital audio processing, and at the same time, experiments with the idea of manipulation of the harmonic space and timbres in the fixed media part of the piece.
