About the piece
Misli [Think] is a piece for flute, clarinet, violin, cello, piano and electronics. The title suggests the spontaneity of contents, within the instrumental ensemble and the electronic part alike. Various internal states are in question here: from peacefulness to chaos, and the influence of the outside noise on the consciousness.
