"States of Mind" uses as its point of departure the Baroque Doctrine of Affections. Over the course of three mini narratives held together thematically and visually, SongFusion explores opposing pairings of affections - love/hate, joy/sorrow, wonder/desire to create a joint multidisciplinary artwork with projections of visual art. Mourad, who has a deep musical understanding and has worked with the leading musicians, including Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Project, has a highly individual artistic style in which he provides his response to the poetry and music. “States of Mind” aspires to be a modern look at everyday states of being. In America. Today.
