Silk Road Songbook

Silk Road Songbook (SRS) is an interdisciplinary art project by artists Millie Chen and Arzu Ozkal, intended to facilitate the creation of original songs for an audio-video project about land and culture. SRS integrates songs with landscapes, re-tracing one of the major arteries of the ancient trade route that spanned Eurasia between Istanbul (Constantinople, western terminus from the 4th century on), West and Central Asia, and Xi’an (Chang’an, eastern terminus and China’s imperial capital). The songs will be generated in collaboration with area musicians and artists in communities that now live along the route and are largely under the radar in terms of global attention. Visit:
