Waruni / Prohini (Awayke! Awayke!) grew out of an examination of Vladimir Propp's Morphology Of A Folktale (1927), which was an attempt to deconstruct the archetypal folktale, reducing it to a taxonomic table of its constituent parts.
Taking elements of Propp's Morphology, I constructed a folk tale narrative and rendered it in audio, telling a story without words or images.
The album is presented with tracks named merely as numbers, and is intended to lend itself to the subjective interpretations and imaginings of individual listeners.
I'm interested to learn what images and narrative elements listeners may perceive, so please get in touch.
