The dialogue between sound and space is the primary concern of Mostafa's works. A space (architectural, urban, private, public, dreamed or real) is the initial generator of the concept, while sound has an intensely powerful ability to reconstruct past experiences, calling up different images or moods with little more than a minor change in value or tone.In its exploration of the conceptual relationship between sound and space, his works navigates the rapid transformations of my surroundings, mapping the effects of "modernity" on local traditions, the phenomenological experience of the individual in the city, and interpersonal relationships. As part and parcel of these interests, it often involves the evocation of personal or shared memories, recalling now outmoded technological innovations, for instance, or engaging with the historical past of a certain public space.
