The title means "I was the lion", which is taken from the Horse and His Boy by C. S. Lewis. This piece revolves around the idea of Arabic calligraphy in motion, where movement and music are used to explore themes of identity and beauty while breaking stigmas against language and culture. The electronic tape track predominantly consists of the sound of Arabic being written onto paper as well as a violin, which are both recorded and then manipulated electronically.
