Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Ištaratu is a plural form of "Ištar" - Babylonian goddess who
    embodied love and war at the same time. This plural form was
    considered an epitome of femininity. The goddess was
    celebrated as a Morning Star (which associated her with the
    Sun and masculine attributes) and as an Evening Star
    (equivalent to the moon – which attributed the feminine
    characteristics). "Ištar" was able to appear in three genders:
    male / female / hermaphrodite. This metamorphic ability was
    the origin of inspiration and the piece can be understood as a
    sound-metaphor that represents and embraces diversity.
