For all the peace attempts, past and future! Let’s put an end to war…
Acousmatic music on the topic of human conflicts to support peace processes throughout the world. Here’s hoping order can be reestablished one day… May these shambles stop and may we lay down our weapons… Acoustic sounds have been borrowed from real events, then modified and mixed in with electronic sounds. These sounds have been laid out anarchically, in a large crescendo/decrescendo structure. This structure takes us through material noise, human noise, excitement, live reports, tumbles of sounds, then the rise of a tornado, and finally, disarmament!
[English translation: François Couture, viii-08]
