'Far from home' is a song sung in a traditional Kurdish style about being far from home and surrounded by no one. It is by Farhad Bandesh and Anna Liebzeit.

The song developed after we began sending sounds of our environments over the internet, as well as listening in real time through headset microphones on the phone, with the idea of creating a composition of field recordings. From there it grew with those original sounds of gates, construction, the boiling kettle, insects and walking developing into a new work with singing and electronic and live instrumentation (such as the duduk).

We have been collaborating since late 2017 and share a love of music and poetry as well as drawing on our cultures and life experiences; Farhad is Kurdish and Anna is an Aboriginal woman with German heritage.

We have always thought of the song like a little film, a journey for the listener.

Thank you,
Farhad and Anna

All proceeds from the song go to Farhad
