I composed a soundtrack for ''Since the beginning'', a video work of Özgür Demirci.

Where does the source of life that remains after what has been taken from us begin and end? In his work entitled "Since the Beginning", Demirci seeks the answer by looking at past stories. Feeding on the aspects of myths and false stories that shape human behavior, "Since the Beginning" questions where the world order comes from through the character of Mnemosyne, the goddess of memory who creates words to write history. The character walks through ancient cities and listens to the sounds, trying to hear the stories that will unleash the energy the world has lost. What remains of these cities constitute the real stories that try to exist in the world order. Since the false stories told to societies have replaced the true stories, most things seen in these cities are shattered.
