Hamza is a soundscape album created using field recordings and noise from post-war Iraq. Heavily inspired by the acoustics of Shi'a islamic ceremonies mourning the loss of mayrted Imams. Hamza combines the human, animal and technological ambience of the country into a series of noises that communicate the tensions of a holy yet neglected country.
